Djokovic looks set to be banned from the upcoming US Open, with unjabbed foreign nationals still not allowed to enter the country. It would be the second time this season that the world No 7 finds himself kept out of a Grand Slam tournament over his vaccination status, as he was deported from Australia on the eve of January’s Aussie Open.
The three-time champion at Flushing Meadows is still holding out hope that the United States will relax their travel restrictions in time for the final Major of the year, now less than six weeks away. But retired former world No 1 McEnroe believes that the Serb should be allowed in no matter what, and wants someone to “sort out” the situation.
“We have to sort this out,” the seven-time Major champion told Tennis365. “Djokovic needs to play at the US Open. Please, someone work out how we make this happen because we need this incredible champion there.”
