Djokovic is betting again in Dubai, making him among the top 16 of the Dubai Duty Free Championships after a smooth victory over Italian Lorenzo Mossetti. But while the United Arab Emirates imposes lighter entry requirements for non-vaccinators, conditions in the United States are more stringent.
And the 34-year-old admitted he will miss some good races across the Atlantic. Even the big question is what will happen at the US Open.
– Not from today. I can’t go, I can’t enter the United States – He said at a press conference after his victory in Dubai. – I can’t play there today. But we will see what happens. I mean, maybe things will change in the coming weeks.
Djokovic was hailed as a hero in Dubai anyway, unlike when he was forced to leave the Australian Open in Melbourne.
I couldn’t have asked for a better reception Djokovic said on the field after the match. – I was playing a game last time, so it couldn’t be a better place to start the season. The best possible experience for me, so thank you for welcoming me into the field. Two smooth wins in two sets, so I can be happy playing my tennis, especially after not playing for about three months. There were moments when things went great, but there were moments when I did an incomprehensible involuntary coercion. You beat a very talented Italian player who didn’t have much to lose. The windy conditions made the match difficult, but it was a very interesting experience for me tonight.
