21-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic's chances of playing in the US Open tournament later this month received a big boost when American health chiefs relaxed nationwide coronavirus guidance for unvaccinated people two-and-a-half weeks before the start of the tournament.
The former world number one tennis player had not taken a vaccine against COVID-19 and because of that was barred from entering the United States. But now, despite being 'unvaccinated', Djokovic can play in New York.
