Novak Djokovic Officially Allowed To Enter US & Compete At US Open

Novak Djokovic will be able to compete at the 2023 US Open, but not only there as he's able to enter the US again.

It's been quite some time since the 35-year-old Serb visited the United States as he opted not to receive a vaccine, and due to the country's strict measures, he wasn't able to travel there and compete at the prestigious Grand Slam event, but also the ATP Masters 1000 tournaments.

Djokovic missed the Indian Wells, Miami Open, Cincinnati Masters, Canadian Open, and also the US Open, where he didn't get a chance to win his 22nd Grand Slam title after reaching the final in 2021. But he won number twenty-two earlier this year and the Serb will get another chance to add to his collection of titles from the United States again this year.

There are only two ATP 1000 tournaments that Djokovic won only two times, one of them is the Monte-Carlo Masters, and after a third-round exit earlier this year, it won't change within the next 12 months, but the Cincinnati Masters is another and the last time Djokovic played there in 2020, he came victorious.

But Djokovic will surely want to focus mainly on the US Open and now nothing can stop him from competing at the tournament, as all the requirements will be officially dropped, starting from May 11th, 2023, way before any ATP event is played on the US soil.

The confirmation came after the official statement from the White House has been released, and it surely delighted Djokovic's fans, as it reads:

"Today, we are announcing that the Administration will end the COVID-19 vaccine requirements for Federal employees, Federal contractors, and international air travelers at the end of the day on May 11, the same day that the COVID-19 public health emergency ends."
