“To me it’s all nonsense and bull****. If you have been vaccinated but are (test) positive, you can enter the United States. If you have not been vaccinated but are negative, you are banned. There is too much politics in sport.”

Djokovic is now just one Grand Slam behind Rafael Nadal after claiming his 21st title earlier this summer by winning Wimbledon. However, both players are in danger of being absent from the next slam at Flushing Meadows, with Nadal also withdrawing from the Montreal Open due to injury.

In a statement issued Friday, Nadal said: “From the days off on vacation and my subsequent return to training, everything has gone well for the past few weeks. Four days ago I also started training on my serve and yesterday, after training, I had a small discomfort that was still there today. We have decided not to travel to Montreal and continue with the training without forcing ourselves. I sincerely thank the Tournament Director, Eugene, and his entire team for the understanding and support they have always shown me, and today was no exception.

“I hope to play again in Montreal, a tournament that I love and that I have won five times in front of an audience that has always received me with great affection. [However,] I have no choice at this point but to be careful and think about health.”
