Novak Djokovic is on the list for the ATP event in Indian Wells, California, next month, but he may be denied entry.


Novak Djokovic is on the roster for next month's ATP event in Indian Wells, California, but the Tennis champion may be denied entry because he has not been vaccinated.

The 34-year-old Serb is set to compete in the famous event in California next month. The competition is adhering to tour policy, which prevents the jab from becoming mandatory.

However, if he maintains his refusal to be vaccinated, his ability to enter the United States remains in doubt.

Exceptions for the unvaccinated are confined to a few categories, according to Mail Online, such as a 'humanitarian or emergency exemption' or people whose presence is in the 'national interest.' After this month's performance at the Dubai Championships, however, it's uncertain where he'll play next.

After watching Nadal surpass his record of Grand Slam titles in Melbourne, Djokovic has been seriously considering getting vaccinated, according to one well-informed source.

Andy Murray, who has been granted a wildcard into the main event, will join Djokovic in Dubai.

The tennis player missed out on defending his Australian Open title last month when an Australian court backed the government's decision to terminate his visa and deport him. The decision by the immigration minister to cancel the 34-year-old Serb's visa on public interest grounds after he came in the nation without being vaccinated was backed by three Federal Court justices.
