Djokovic cleared to play

The All England Lawn Tennis Club has confirmed that there will be no Covid-19 measures in place at the 2022 tournament and vaccination will not be mandatory for players to participate.

This will allow Serbian world number one Novak Djokovic to defend his title.

Players will also be allowed to stay in their own private accommodation, unlike the last edition when they had to all stay in a central London hotel to minimise the risks of Covid-19 infections.

Djokovic, a 20-time major champion, was denied a chance to defend his Australian Open title in January due to his unvaccinated status.
