“Novak Djokovic will miss next week’s Miami Open after being denied an exemption that would have allowed him to enter the U.S. despite not being vaccinated against COVID-19, tournament director James Blake said Friday.
“We tried to get Novak Djokovic to be allowed to get an exemption, but that wasn’t able to happen,” Blake told Tennis Channel. “Obviously, we’re one of the premier tournaments in the world. We’d like to have the best players that can play. We did all that we could. We tried to talk to the government, but that’s out of our hands.”
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott were among those calling on the Biden administration to allow Djokovic to enter the U.S. and compete at the tournament he has won six times, most recently in 2016.
Djokovic, 35, is also missing the ongoing Masters tournament in Indian Wells, California, due to his inability to secure the exemption“

This news plus Trump getting arrested next week… damn, this is going to be one of the best weeks of my life.
Oddly SP, I just went to Laughlin and not once through airport security was I asked about vacination, nor wife or Father who were with.
Somebody dropped the ball then…
Big Havy fan ? Who cares…
Yeah, I went to the US without having to provide proof of vaccination…lol. Ball gag dropped.
The important thing is Novaxx continues to destroy his legacy.
By having a sack. I know, that’s how your country won itself. Not so much anymore.
Legacy ? Everyone will look back at the plandemic and know what happened.
The vaccine doesn’t even work. Why continue to push it.
He’s a danger to the other players and fans by being unvaccinated
