  • More sports topics can be found hereBoris Becker has again asked for understanding for his former protégé Novak Djokovic, but also suggested vaccination against the corona virus for the tennis world number one. In an interview published in the “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung” on Friday evening, the three-time Wimbledon winner was not surprised that the Australian authorities had once again withdrawn the visa from the Serb. Immigration Minister Alex Hawke’s decision four days after a court defeat called Becker “a strong return”. Defending champion Djokovic’s start at the Australian Open from Monday is therefore questionable, a federal court in Melbourne will deal with the objection of the 34- deal with year-olds. Becker, former coach of the winner of 20 Grand Slam tournaments, emphasized with a view to the authorities: “I’m not someone who points the finger at people, but they’re not entirely innocent in the Novak Djokovic disaster. But the bill has to be taken he’ll pay all by himself.”

    Becker to Djokovic: “It will be easier for you if you are vaccinated”

    Anyone who does not get vaccinated does not automatically become a bad person, says Becker, who himself has been vaccinated three times. The 54-year-old pointed out that an infection is still possible. “Novak made a different decision than me and the majority of people. But he didn’t do anything forbidden,” emphasized Becker. However, he also advised: “If he wants to continue concentrating on tennis, he has to make changes. That’s why my opinion would be: “Novak, try to see that it will be easier for you to be vaccinated.” I don’t know if he does that,” said Becker. It won’t be any easier for Djokovic because the French Open and Wimbledon would also take a close look at the situation in Australia. However, he does not believe that Djokovic will end his career prematurely because of Corona and his attitude towards it. (dpa/fra)
