Joe Biden’s ridiculous policies are wreaking havoc on the country.
Not even the world of sports is safe.
And one journalist called out the insane thing Biden did to a tennis legend.
The 2022 U.S. Open is currently underway, and arguably the best player in the world is not playing.
Not because of injury, but because of Joe Biden’s ridiculous vaccine mandate.
Novak Djokovic, who’s second all-time in major championships with 21, will have to wait until next calendar year to attempt to draw even with Rafael Nadal, who has 22 majors.
Djokovic is missing the last of the four annual major tournaments because of his refusal to get the COVID vaccine.
Djokovic was unable to play at this year’s Australian Open for the same reason.
He wrote on social media, “Sadly, I will not be able to travel to NY this time for US Open. Thank you #NoleFam for your messages of love and support. Good luck to my fellow players! I’ll keep in good shape and positive spirit and wait for an opportunity to compete again. See you soon tennis world!”
Stacey Allaster, U.S. Open Tournament Director, said in a statement, “Novak is a great champion and it is very unfortunate that he will be unable to compete at the 2022 U.S. Open, as he is unable to enter the country due to the federal government’s vaccination policy for non-U.S. citizens. We look forward to welcoming Novack back at the 2023 U.S. Open.”
Obviously, the U.S. Open wants Djokovic in the tournament, but the ridiculousness of the COVID regime is getting in the way.
And Australian journalist Ben Fordham is furious over the matter.
Fordham said, “It is embarrassing and it defies logic and science…He is one of the fittest people on the planet. He doesn’t drink, he travels with his own personal doctor and nutritionist. He has recovered from having COVID-19 already.”
Djokovic’s plight underscores just how absurd the COVID regime has become.
A world-class athlete who’s already recovered from COVID is not being allowed into the country.
There is zero medical justification for this decision.
Fordham continued, “[T]he world will watch the US Open, knowing the best in the world isn’t there. I think the treatment of Novak Djokovic is ridiculous. He’s not wanting to work in a hospital or a nursing home. He just wants to belt a ball around the tennis court and he’s been prevented from doing so.”
He also suggested that prohibiting Djokovic from playing in the tournament will only lead to more people having a negative opinion of the vaccine.
Fordham explained, “Novak Djokovic has decided not to have the vaccine. That is his choice…This kind of thing undoes a lot of goodwill around the vaccine because people want to see the best tennis players in the biggest tournaments. This cult-like approach to the jab is counter-productive. The average person, vaccinated or unvaccinated, just wants to get on with their lives.”
Fordham is completely correct.
It’s truly embarrassing that a great American sporting event has been sullied by Biden’s nonsensical COVID policy.
