Jelena Djokovic was not holding back any words when she fired back at a Journalist who brought to light Novak’s vaccination status. In her responses, the wife of the Wimbledon winner supported her husband’s decisions.
Journalist Rothenberg criticizes Novak Djokovic
Thus far, Novak Djokovic’s vaccination status is no secret to anyone and the Tennis player subsequently couldn’t play in the Australian Open this year. After fighting a lengthy court battle, Novak was ultimately sent home because of this.
Right now, Jelena Djokovic is firing back at Journalist Rothenberg. Who openly criticized Novak about playing a pivotal role in the anti-vaccination movement.
“Unless there is a swift change in US immigration law, #Wimbledon will be Djokovic’s last Grand Slam event of the year. US requires vaccination for foreigners to enter, and Djokovic has firmly said he has ruled out getting vaccinated, entrenching himself as an anti-vax posterboy.”

According to Fox News, this did not sit well with Jelena. As she swiftly fired back at Rothenberg allegedly at the time of the Wimbledon match. She made her stance clear during the heated exchange and told Rothenberg just what she thought about him.
“Excuse me. Just making sure that it is noted that YOU tagged him as antivax poster boy for whatever reason you have. He simply responded what HIS body choice is.”
Presently, Novak Djokovic could possibly miss the US Open due to his vaccination status. Thus far, the tennis player has been open about not taking the vaccine and hopes that the US could possibly exempt him from taking one. Or ultimately change the vaccine mandate for visitors.
“I don’t think exemption is realistically possible … I think it’s just whether or not they remove this in time for me to get to the USA.”
This weekend, Novak Djokovic earned his seventh Wimbledon title. Presently, if he gets to participate in the US Open, the seven-time Wimbledon winner might get his chance to square up with Rafael Nadal.
