Djokovic sent off from Montreal, Kyrgios sent off

Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic has withdrawn from next week’s US Open tune-up event in Canada because he cannot enter the country without being fully immunized against COVID-19, organizers said.

Djokovic refused to be vaccinated, but was still on the entry list for the ATP 1000 hard-court event in Montreal when the vaccine was released in mid-July.

To qualify as a fully vaccinated traveler to Canada, you must have received your second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to entering Canada.

Tennis Canada announced Thursday that Germany’s Oscar Otte has also withdrawn.

However, Wimbledon finalists Nick Kyrgios of Australia and Benjamin Bonzi of France were entered in the main draw.

Djokovic, who remains on the entry list for the US Open in New York from Aug. 29 to Sept. 11, is more prepared to skip Grand Slam tournaments than get a COVID-19 vaccine. said before.

The Serb has failed to defend his crown at this year’s Australian Open after being deported in January for his vaccination status.
