VIVA – Novak Djokovic now looks set to participate in the 2022 French Open after France eased COVID-19 restrictions.

Prime Minister Jean Castex announced that vaccine passports would no longer be required from March 14.

The French Open, of which unvaccinated Djokovic is the reigning champion, will kick off on May 22, 2022.

Djokovic, 34, was deported from Australia due to his vaccination status just before the start of the Australian Open in January.

The Serbian star later said he was willing to skip future grand slam events rather than a COVID-19 vaccine.

“That’s the price I’m willing to pay,” Djokovic said last month.
