Rafa Nadal spoke about the case of Novak Djokovic and his deportation from Australia since he does not comply with the full vaccination schedule against COVID19. The Serbian was left out of the tournament and had to leave the country.
The Spaniard was clear and pointed out about the Serbian’s decisions and said “The world has suffered enough not to follow the rules. Everyone should do what they think is good for them, but not vaccinating you can cause inconvenience, it is the only way to stop this pandemic.
Beyond the controversy, Nadal was reflective about the situation and left a message “At the end of the day, I can only say that we are going through difficult times, with many families suffering during the last two years, and it is normal for people in Australia I was frustrated by this case, because they have had many restrictions, many Australians who have not been able to return home or move from their cities “
The event became a political issue in Australia, to the point that hours before his arrival in the country Prime Minister Scott Morrison left him a strong warning: “We are awaiting your presentation and the evidence you provide to support it. . If those tests are insufficient, you will not be treated differently from others and you will be on the next plane home. There should be no special rules for Novak Djokovic at all. “
The truth is that while this entire event of global resonance happens, Australians queue up to nine hours to undergo a coronavirus test due to the high demand for the rebound in infections in the country, which this Wednesday reported almost 65,000 infections and 19 deceased.

Rafa justified his point of view and expressed “Many people have died around the world and what medical personnel and all governments and health organizations tell us is that the only way to stop this is vaccination and if you are vaccinated, you have no problem playing here, I repeat. One can look for ways to play without doing it, but here some rules have to be followed »
Finally, he added, “He has made his decisions, no one forces him to be vaccinated or not, he is an elderly person and with his decisions he has to pay the consequences. Unfortunately we are in a pandemic and we have to stop it whatever it takes, and the only way is to follow the indications and the rules that tell us », the Spanish tennis player closed.
