Similar to his compatriot Isner, Opelka has been a pretty outspoken person on many things including politics. The American always sided with Djokovic over the COVID issue and he's advocated for the Serbian to be allowed into the country as far back as last year. After the news of his inability to come to Indian Wells came out, Opelka took to Instagram to voice his disappointment. He wrote 'what a shame' on his story.
He then mocked the populary used 'land of the free' mantle for USA in reference to another tweet. Check it out below.
