"I liked what Djokovic said" says Daniil Medvedev on vaccination status

Daniil Medvedev has backed Novak Djokovic's stance of not revealing his vaccination status as the Russian fells players should not be forced to announce it publicly.

Daniil Medvedev has been one of the players sceptical of the vaccine since it was adopted for mass use. The Russian usually avoided talking on the topic but whenever pressed he adopted a rather reserved attitude towards it. In a recent interview Medvedev said:

“There is a lot of division in the society, not only in sports, but in the whole society, between those who have not been vaccinated and have been vaccinated. And that’s really scary. That we fell for discriminating against someone if he wants to decide for himself one way or another, whether he wants to be vaccinated or not.

Medvedev futher said:

“I am very disappointed with the world society at this moment and the way in which the media transmit and put pressure on all people. There is too much ambiguity, too much information that is not valid, so it turns out that it is, so it is not, everything changes a lot.”

Medvedev was then asked whether he is vaccinated or not and he said:

“I liked what Novak said about this. He said the vaccination was a personal matter and he would not be making it public. And I also decided not to disclose medical things. As for Australia: everyone will see who is vaccinated and who is not. Of course, the players can say that they are injured, but this will be a play on words."

He finished with:

“I want to play in Australia, that’s all I can say.”
