Djokovic: I'm not vaccinated and I don't intend to be...

After claiming the 2022 Wimbledon title, Novak Djokovic has already set his sights on this year's US Open.

The Serbian, however, doesn't plan on getting vaccinated against COVID-19, which could pose a problem for his entry into the United States.

"I hope to have good news from the United States," Djokovic said.

"If I can't play the US Open I have to see what I'll do. It could be the Davis Cup, the Laver Cup. I'm not going to play tournaments just to play them or to score points.

"I'm not vaccinated and I don't intend to get vaccinated. Asking for a medical exemption is not realistic. I don't have answers there. I think it's just whether or not they remove this in time for me to get to the USA.

"Whether or not I'm playing any tournament soon, I'll definitely be resting for the next couple of weeks because it has been quite an exhausting and demanding period for me.

"Then I'll wait hopefully for some good news from the USA because I would really love to go there."

Djokovic also reiterated that he is not keen get any of the available vaccines and the situation in Australia has not persuaded him to get the jab in any way, not even if it allows him to continue competing.

"I'm not in a hurry to keep winning, what I want is to stay healthy to have my options in the future," Djokovic stated.

"What happened in Australia created a storm inside me and it's been hard to get over it."
