In an interview with the BBC in early February, Novak Djokovic publicly revealed that he was not vaccinated and that he did not intend to take the vaccine against Covid-19 for the time-being. The Serb is aware of the impact of this decision on his profession, which he will not be able to practice in some countries, according to current health regulations.

Djokovic is ready to miss Grand Slams, as he did at the Australian Open, to respect his beliefs and remain in control of his body. The Serb does not want to take a product when he does not know the effects it will have. In the latest episode of Eye of the Coach, Patrick Mouratoglou gives his opinion on the controversial subject.
