(Reuters) – Novak Djokovic said he hopes players are not required to get vaccinated against COVID-19 to compete on the ATP circuit and that their freedom of choice will be supported. The ATP earlier this month issued new guidelines saying that players who have been vaccinated would not be considered a close contact of anyone who tests positive. The governing body for men’s tennis also drew up a list of exemptions for players who have been vaccinated. Both the ATP and the players recommended by the WTA accept vaccines when available. Djokovic said there are “many options in terms of vaccines,” but it is still unclear whether they would be mandatory. “I don’t think it will come to that. I hope not, because I have always believed in freedom of choice,” Djokovic told reporters when asked at the Serbia Open if he had been vaccinated. “And I will keep the decision of whether I am going to vaccinate or not, it is an intimate decision and I do not want to enter this game of vaccines for and against, which the media are unfortunately creating. as someone who is against or who is in favor of vaccines. I’m not going to answer the question … and I hope everyone respects that. ”Djokovic, who tested positive for COVID-19 last year, had previously said that he was personally opposed to vaccination and would not want to be forced to do so. someone who gets vaccinated to be able to travel.
