Novak Djokovic, the serbian Tennis prodigy has been heightening his conviction about not getting vaccinated even if it costs him a tour Or a Opens like Australia and French. Once again as we near French Open, the matter has got its spike in its gloomy way.
One can remember the vaccine and vaccination trail that happened with Novak Djokovic during Australian Open that made him miss the entire tournament. But still the same bone of contention of getting vaccinated or staying unvaccinated is ringing bells on his taking part in Upcoming French Open.
Amid all these Novak Djokovic came up and addressed media. In an interview with BBC, the Serb denied he was anti-vaccination, but said he was only exercising his personal choice when it came to deciding what entered his body.
“Yes, that is the price that I’m willing to pay. I was never against vaccination, but I’ve always supported the freedom to choose what you put in your body.
“I understand the consequences of my decision. I am unable to travel to most tournaments at the moment.”
“Because the principles of decision making on my body are more important than any title or anything else. I’m trying to be in tune with my body as much as I possibly can.
“As an elite professional athlete, I’ve always carefully reviewed . . . anything that comes into my body as a fuel. I say that everyone has the right to choose or act to say what feels appropriate for them. I have never said I was a part of that [antivaccine] movement. Based on all the information that I got, I decided not to take the vaccine, as of today.
I understand and support fully the freedom to choose whether you get vaccinated or not. I have not spoken about this before and I have not disclosed my medical record as I have a right to keep that private and discreet. But as I see there are a lot of wrong conclusions and assumptions out there. I think it’s important to speak up about that and justify certain things.”
