Pablo Carreno was the executioner of Novak Djokovic in the Beijing Olympics, where the bronze medal was hung after surprising the world number one. Now, he has joined the growing group of tennis players critical of the Serb’s position before the Australian Open stating that since she is not vaccinated, the best thing she could have done was to stay home.
«One of the clear rules to come here is to be vaccinated and what you have to do is get vaccinated. And if you are not vaccinated, do not come. Everyone is free to do what they can, but these messes are not good for tennis and that there is so much talk about these things, that we have to be aware of whether they are going to let him play, if the draw has to be changed… It is a a bit complicated situation, “he lamented Carreno in statements to Eurosport.
The Spanish tennis player, number 21 in the world ranking, has raised his voice against Djokovic just as other important players on the circuit have done in recent days, such as the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas or the british Andy Murray. Meanwhile, the unknown remains about participation in the Australian Open of the Balkan, who is going to rush through all his options with the help of his legal team.
