French Open 2022 Update: Novak Djokovic can breathe easy, French Open organizers say ‘Djoko free to play at Roland Garros’

Novak Djokovic French Open: France has lifted restrictions in almost all public spaces on Monday. This means the Roland Garros stadium should be operating at full capacity with Djokovic taking it to the red dirt courts.

The 20-time Grand Slam winner was unable to defend his Australian Open title in January.  The Serb was deported from the country in a furore after being initially admitted to the tournament despite not being vaccinated.

The 34-year-old is also out of this month’s ATP 1000 tournaments at Indian Wells and Miami, unable to enter the United States without a proof of vaccination.

French Open 2022 Update: While that is not required to enter France or any sporting event in the country, French tennis federation (FFT) has warned things can change quickly.

“There’s still a virus circulating and we have to be cautious. If things were to happen again and the government would take new measures we would not be excluded from these measures,” president Gilles Moretton of FFT explained.

“We started selling tickets on March 8 and 500,000 of the 600,000 have already been sold,” Moretton told a news conference on Wednesday.

“Out of the 150,000 tickets for the night sessions, 100,000 have been sold.”
