Novak Djokovic: French Open appearance more likely after vaccine rule change


World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has been one of the most dominant players over the past decade. After his heroics during the last season, the fortunes for the Serb have taken a topsy-turvy route.

After complications regarding him not taking part in the Australian Open this season, Djokovic will be seen competing for the first time this year at the Dubai Tennis Championships.


Novak Djokovic spills the beans on his itinerary for the 2022 season

Recently, speaking ahead of his opening round match, Djokovic gave an honest opinion on his plans for the 2022 season. He mentioned that his initial plan was to compete at the Grand Slam events and a few ATP Masters 1000 competitions.



Speaking on this subject, the Serb stated, “Actually, I’m just gonna have to follow the rules. Whenever I am allowed to play in a tournament, I will try to go to this country to play. Obviously, I don’t intend to play a full season. It wasn’t my intention either.”



“I had in mind to do my best in the Grand Slams and in some of the Masters 1000. But right now the situation is obviously different for me. I really can’t choose: I will have to go and play where I can, wherever I have the opportunity.” [Quotes translated using Google translate]

Things could get difficult for the World No. 1



There are a number of tournaments that will keep the World No. 1 player away from competing. His stance on certain rules that need to be followed puts him against the rules and regulations of a majority of tournaments in Europe and North America.
