Tennis Australia for medical professionals has not been able to ‘make an impact on the process’
The Australian Tennis Federation also issued a statement saying it had no jurisdiction over the area. So there will be no possible agreement between him and Djokovic or there will be no other player who wants to play at any cost without being vaccinated. The body promised that there would be no use of any pressure to break the rules.
“Any request for an exception must comply with strict government requirements. This is the same process for everyone who wants to enter Australia. Any allegation that the federation seeks to violate these rules is false. The arbitrator in exception cases is the domain of independent medical professionals. We are not in a position to affect this process“, Tennis Australia confirmed.
As a reminder, possible exemptions are for veterans who have had Govt disease after July 31 and whose vaccine should wait, or who may show a severe adverse effect from the first dose (e.g., heart attack or pericarditis). Novak Djokovic’s father said a few days ago that his son would not be able to participate in the Australian Open due to a compulsory vaccination, but the World No. 1 did not announce his official position.
