"Under these blackmails Novak probably won't play in Australia" believes father Srdjan Djokovic

Novak Djokovic is not yet confirmed for the Australian Open as nobody really knows whether Djokovic is already vaccinated or if he will get vaccinated at all.

The Serbian has maintained his stance that it's a private matter that he won't share publicly and until the event does not start it's hard to see how anybody will know whether Djokovic is playing or not. In a recent interview with TV Prva, his father Srdjan Djokovic, who has made bold statements before talked about the issue. He said:

"As far as vaccines and non-vaccines are concerned, it is the personal right of each of us whether we will be vaccinated or not. No one has the right to enter that intimacy, it is guaranteed by the constitution. Everyone has the right to decide on their health. Will he publish it (if he is vaccinated or not), I don't think so. I don't know that decision either, and even if I did, I wouldn't share it with you. He has the right to decide as he wants."

Djokovic is not a fan of how the Australian Open handled the whole situation comparing their position on vaccination as blackmail. He also believes that his son would not conform to this type of blackmail:

"Under these blackmails and conditions Novak probably won't play at the Australian Open. It was embarrassing because of the announcement of those rulers in the provinces of Australia, who gave themselves the right to call out nine-time champion of Australia. I wouldn't do that. And he's my son, so you figure out for yourself if he is going to play or not."

Djokovic also took a shot at Craig Tiley the event director saying:

"What is a recognized vaccine, Mr. Craig? Russian vaccine is not recognized? According to our criteria, only Chinese and Russian are recognized. The libertarian world has 90 percent of the world's population. For us, it is Russian and Chinese. Recognize them and we will vaccine, with pleasure."
