Novak Djokovic is probably unvaccinated, and has to be vaxxed in order to compete in the Australian Open, unless he gets a medical exemption. So, he got a medical exemption and the Open will let him compete.
Not so fast, says the border guards. He’s stuck at the border right now, because he apparently applied for the wrong visa (maybe?) or has an invalid exemption or something. The Open officials are trying to appeal to the state government, but the state is saying that border issues are strictly a federal issue.
It will be interesting to see if he gets into the country. This thread could be to discuss that, but I’m really interested in anyone’s speculation on what his medical exemption might have said.
Has he mentioned any medical issues in the past? Or, did he just get Serbia’s version of Dr. Ronny Jackson to sign off on whatever?
There are very, very few medical reasons why you can’t use any of the vaccines, and I can’t imagine that someone in prime physical shape like Djokovic would have one of those reasons, but I’m no doctor.
Anyway, speculate away!
