Novak Djokovic could play in French Open as per the latest vaccine rules


In France, the most eminent player Novak Djokovic will have to agree to retain his title at the French Open amid the COVID-19 pandemic and regulation made by the French government. He has not been vaccinated yet but will be present on the tennis court for the second Grand Slam tournament to be held in May. 

When he visited Australia, he was deported from there. Djokovic was not allowed to show his presence in the Australian Open in this current month as he did not obey the strict rules and regulations made by the national authorities. 


However, as the new regulation made by the European government that if the person is not vaccinated, he will not be allowed to visit stadiums, bars, restaurants and the other hospitality venues, by this new law, it seems that tennis players will also be not allowed to enter at the Roland Garros (French Open).

Furthermore, the questions will rise against the player’s status in France as he was deported from Australia because he was not vaccinated. The Sports Minister named Roxana Maracineanu mentioned earlier that once the rule has been passed, the nation vaccination pass will become mandatory for all the people to get access to all the stadiums, restaurants, bars, theatres as well as the exhibitions for all the professionals from French and other places. 

It is said that the vaccination pass is not only for the vaccination purpose. It also includes various things. 

On Monday, the law that has been introduced also involves that 

anyone who has evidence that they have tested positive within the past six months is exempt from showing a vaccine pass. 

This suggests Djokovic could play the next Grand Slam tournament at the French Open in May and June, as he has said he tested positive in mid-December.
