Novak Djokovic withdraws from two U.S. events due to COVID-19 restrictions

Novak Djokovic withdrew from the BNB Paribas Open on Wednesday before the start of the event, saying that he is unable to travel to the United States because he is unvaccinated. 

Djokovic, who announced in a tweet that he also dropped out of the Miami Open later in the month, explained that CDC regulations prevented him from traveling to the U.S. for the events. The U.S. requires foreign visitors to be vaccinated before entering the country.

“While I was automatically listed in the @BNPPARIBASOPEN and @MiamiOpen draw I knew it would be unlikely I’d be able to travel,” Djokovic wrote. “The CDC has confirmed that regulations won’t be changing so I won’t be able to play in the US. Good luck to those playing in these great tournaments.”
