Jelena Djokovic Stand Behind Novak by …. criticisms
Journalist Ben Rothenberg analyzed the situation of the Serbian champion by launching yet another provocation against him
After lifting the Wimbledon trophy to the sky for the seventh time in his career, Novak Djokovic focused on the calendar that he will try to follow in the last part of the season. He said: “I will go on vacation and rest for the next two weeks.
Then I will wait for good news from the US. I would like to play the US Open. I am not vaccinated and I am not going to get vaccinated now. The only good news that could come from the United States concerns the rules for entry into the country.
” Considering the rules in force in the United States, which oblige travelers to present a complete vaccination cycle at the border, the Serbian would not have the opportunity to participate in the American Masters 1000 and, above all, the US Open.
Journalist Ben Rothenberg analyzed the situation of the Serbian champion by launching yet another provocation against him. Rothenberg has always adopted a critical attitude towards Djokovic.
Harsh attack against Djokovic: Jelena defends her husband
On Twitter Rothenberg wrote: “Unless there are sudden changes in US immigration rules, Wimbledon will be Djokovic’s last Grand Slam of the year.
The United States requires vaccination for foreign citizens to enter and Djokovic has firmly ruled out vaccination, establishing himself as an anti-vax posterboy.” Jelena Djokovic, wife of Novak, did not like the last sentence of the tweet, who decided to intervene to clarify an important issue: “Excuse me.
I would just like to point out that you have labeled him as an anti-vax posterboy for any reason. He just talked about his personal choice. I understand that his choice is his. I’m saying that his decision not to get vaccinated, which limits his ability to participate in some tournaments, has made him, unwittingly or not, a great icon of the anti-vax movement.
I believe that every citizen, especially public figures, has a duty to act responsibly with public health actions and messages during the pandemic and Djokovic, for the champion he is and the influence he has, has deeply disappointed me.
You are creating a critical narrative that fits your purpose very well. Novak is simply choosing what’s best for his body. He won’t play any tournaments for this choice and he accepted it. Thank you for sharing your beliefs.
I hope you don’t get judged for them and then become a posterboy for hate and bullying. You’re an influential figure too, please don’t continue to disappoint, unless that’s your role.”
British politician applauds Novak Djokovic for handling of Australia, US situations
Djokovic likely to miss out on the US Open but he is not complaining.
British politician Claire Fox has applauded Novak Djokovic for the way he handled the Australia visa saga. Djokovic was granted a special exemption to compete at the Australian Open but he was placed in detention after landing in Melbourne.
Over the next 10 days, Djokovic had his visa canceled twice and he didn’t get a chance to compete at the Australian Open after being deported from the country. Now, Djokovic is likely to miss out on the US Open because the US vaccine laws require foreigners to show vaccination proof upon entering the country.
Djokovic has accepted the US Open situation calmly and Fox praises the Serb for the way he has been handling the challenges.
Fox: Djokovic has been handling these situations great
“I also thought how he handled what happened in Australia and America has been great.
I thought he was treated abysmally by Australia where he was refused play because of his medical status, his decision about his own body not to take a vaccine right,” Fox said, per Sportskeeda. “Not one I’d agree with but who cares, it’s not my body, it’s his body.
ho cares, it’s not my body, it’s his body.
But, he didn’t even winge about it. He argued his position. They keep saying to him, “why have you given up on these big tournaments just for this and he says, ‘because I’ve got principles’ What a joy, he is not only a brilliant tennis player, but he’s a brilliant tennis player with principles.”
This week, Djokovic confirmed that he intends only to play where he is allowed to. “I am a professional tennis player, I don’t go into politics or anything else because that doesn’t interest me,” Djokovic said.
“I have my stance and I am a proponent for freedom to choose what is best for you. I respect everything and everybody, and I expect people to at least respect my decision. If I have permission, I’ll be there. If I don’t, I won’t be there – it’s not the end of the world”.
Alps Tour moves to the island of La Gomera
In addition to number one, number 10, the Frenchman Pierre Pineau, will also be missing from the top ten in the order of merit
The Alps Tour remains in Spain, but moves to the island of La Gomera, in the Canary archipelago, where Fred Olsen Alps de La Gomera is scheduled for 14-16 July at Tecina Golf La Gomera. Not many competitors, only 81 representing eleven nations, but they still make a quality field with eight of the top ten in the order of merit and ten seasonal winners.
Fourteen Italians will be competing with Stefano Mazzoli (his Ein Bay Open), number 5 in the ranking who has a good opportunity to improve his position, while Gregorio De Leo, leader of the money list, took a rest after the success in the previous Open de Las Castillas.
At the start, among others, Giacomo Fortini and Andrea Saracino, third and ninth behind De Leo in Soria.
The Alps Tour, schedule
In addition to number one, number 10, the Frenchman Pierre Pineau, will also be missing from the top ten in the order of merit.
There will be, together with Mazzoli, the French amateurs, who return after having played in the European Team Championship, Julien Sale (n.3) and Tom Vaillant, number 2 and two titles, and other winners in 2022 such as the Dutch Koen Kouvenaar ( n.4) and Davey Porsius (n.9), the Swiss Mathias Eggenberger (n.6), the Irish Gary Hurley (n.7) and the Portuguese Tomas Guimaraes Bessa (n.8).
They are not among the top ten, but they too have won this year and will start, the French Oihan Guillamoundeguy and Adrien Pendaries and the Spaniard Manuel Morugan. The prize pool is 40,000 euros, of which 5,800 euros will go to the winner.
In 1986, the Satellite Tour was born, dependent on the European Tour, from the desire of countries such as Sweden, France and Italy to open their national events to foreign players. Since 1989, the best players at the end of the season have been eligible to join the European Tour the following season.

In 1990, this circuit was renamed Challenge Tour. The Challenge Tour has grown successfully and can accommodate all European players who wish to participate in its events. As a result, the European Tour decided to create regionalized European third divisions in 2000.
Thus were created four regional circuits: a region comprising Great Britain and Ireland (the PGA EuroPro Tour), the second group the Scandinavian countries (Nordic League), the third in Central Europe (the EPD Tour today called Pro Golf Tour), and the last, the Alps Tour, including Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland. Since July 2015, like the other regional European circuits, the Alps Tour offers points counting for the world ranking.
