Unvaccinated Djokovic to skip Cincinnati tournament

Western and Southern Open Tournament in Cincinnati released a statement on Friday saying that Novak Djokovic will skip the tournament due to "travel restrictions."

Unvaccinated travelers are currently not allowed to enter the United States, and Djokovic has previously stated that he would not get the covid jab even if that stops him from playing at tournaments. He is expected to miss the US Open, the last Grand Slam of the year, therefore lowering his chances of catching up to Rafael Nadal's record of 22 Grand Slam titles.

In January, Djokovic was deported from Australia and was thus prevented from playing at the Australian Open.
