The Serbian tennis star is allowed to come to the tennis tournament even if he is not vaccinated.

This was announced by the president of the Italian Tennis Federation, Angelo Binaghi, during a presentation of the tournament, which begins in Rome on May 8.

It reports the news agency AP.

The entry rules that currently prevail in Italy require vaccine passports, proof of recovery from the infection or a negative PCR test.

According to Djokovic, he has tested positive for covid-19 twice, most recently in December, which thus seems to be considered sufficient.

Due to the fact that Djokovic is unvaccinated, he has only participated in two tournaments so far in 2022. But most recently in Monte Carlo, he was knocked out directly by the tournament's sensational player: 46th ranked Alejandro Davidovich Fokina - who in turn went all the way to the final, where he lost to Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas.
