French Open prospects

Djokovic’s Covid-related deportation from Australia raised plenty of questions about his prospects of competing at the French Open, the year’s next scheduled Grand Slam. 

The Serb won his second ever title at Roland Garros last year, inflicting Rafael Nadal’s third career defeat at the French Open en route to victory. 

And while it seemed as though Djokovic may be denied entry into France due to the requirement of vaccine passports to enter public places, further developments have offered hope. 

According to La Gazzetta, a vaccine passport can be obtained by anyone who has recovered from Covid within the last six months.

As the tournament is scheduled to get underway in May, Djokovic’s positive test in December should grant him entry, and subsequently the opportunity to defend his title.
