As the vaccination requirement for international travellers is about to expire, Novak Djokovic can participate in the US Open

Novak Djokovic, the top-ranked tennis player in Serbia, will be permitted to participate in this year's US Open after the country stated that it would no longer need overseas passengers to have the Covid-19 immunisation.
Due to his vaccination status, the 22-time Grand Slam champion has missed a number of events, including the US Open.
“We are announcing that the Administration will end the Covid-19 vaccine requirements for Federal employees, Federal contractors, and international air travellers at the end of the day May 11, the same day that the Covid-19 public health emergency ends,” reads a statement from the White House.
The Serbian great requested a special visa to visit the country from American officials earlier this year despite not having had a coronavirus vaccination.
He withdrew from Indian Wells in March and the Miami Open in March as a result of being turned away from admission into the United States due to his vaccination status.
Due to his lack of immunisations, the Serb was expelled from Australia last year and was unable to attend the Australian Open.
But in January 2023, he was given permission to go to Melbourne, where he won a record-extending 10th Australian Open title, tying Rafael Nadal's record of 22 major titles.
