Former tennis participant Martina Navratilova, winner of 59 Grand Slams between singles and doubles, admitted that she admires Novak Djokovic, however can’t defend her determination to not get vaccinated.
The American, of Czechoslovak origin, spoke on the British program ‘Good Morning Britain’ on the case of the Serbian, who armed a scandal in Australia for his or her place to not get vaccinated in opposition to COVID.
“It’s unbelievable,” the previous tennis participant mentioned of Djokovic’s scenario. “And it could have been prevented. I wish Novak had been vaccinated. I admire him very much, but I cannot defend his decision not to vaccinate,” he added.
The Serbian wielded a contagion on December 16 as an excuse for not getting vaccinated and having the ability to obtain a medical exemption to enter Australia and play the primary Grand Slam of the 12 months. This has been put doubtful by the acts to which Djokovic attended within the days after the contagion, to which the tennis participant has replied that he didn’t know the outcome till a day later and admitted that on the 18th he attended an interview even supposing it was conscious of being optimistic.
“I would be much more afraid of getting infected by not being vaccinated than any other side effect that I could have from getting vaccinated. We must also worry about other people. In the locker rooms we are very close to each other”, Navratilova opined.
