Novak Djokovic has chosen to remain unvaccinated despite having to miss out on several tournaments, including the Australian Open (where he is a nine-time champion). Djokovic, who defended his Wimbledon title earlier this month, is now just one short of Rafael Nadal's tally of 22 Grand Slam titles but faces the prospect of not being permitted to take part in the upcoming US Open.

In that context, American cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough recently claimed there is enough medical evidence to show that the COVID-19 vaccines cause heart damage and that they can prove to be detrimental to an athlete.

Speaking to Dave Martin on NTD News, Dr McCullough also stated there could be damage to the skeletal muscles, nerves and the brain after taking the COVID vaccine.

"The COVID-19 vaccines, all of them, in the medical literature, there are over 200 papers, they all cause heart damage and that is the last thing that an athlete can possibly risk," McCullough said. "Heart damage can lead to heart failure or tragically, sudden death."
"He has clearly made the right choice and the vaccine injuries extend beyond the heart," he added. "There can be damage to the sleketal muscle, the nerves, the brain, so much of what an elite tennis player is, is at risk when they take a COVID-19 vaccine."
It’s really simple on the Novak Djokovic vaccination thing: His body, his choice. He’s not pushing his views on anyone else, so no one should be pushing theirs on him. Respect his choice. twitter.com/jelenadjokovic…

Dr. McCullough further claimed that a paper published on NCAA athletes has proven that they have a lower rate of COVID-19 than the general student population.

"They shouldn't have any more restrictions than the general public. There was a paper published from NCAA athletes on testing that was done on a routine basis. The athletes have a lower rate of COVID-19 than the general student population," he stated.

Despite the risk of falling behind in the all-important Grand Slam race, Novak Djokovic has maintained an unwavering stance on vaccination.

Speaking to the media after his Wimbledon triumph, the Serb reiterated that while he was unwilling to take the jab, he hoped that the US Government would tweak the rules to enable him to take part in the last Grand Slam of the year.

"I'm not vaccinated and I'm not planning to get vaccinated so the only good news I can have is them removing the mandated green vaccine card or whatever you call it to enter United States or exemption. I don't know. I don't think exemption is realistically possible. If that is possibility, I don't know what exemption would be about. I don't know. I don't have much answers there," he said.
#Djokovic"I was never against vaccination but I've always supported the freedom to choose what you put in your body...The principles of decision making on my body are more important than any title or anything else. I'm trying to be in tune with my body as much as I possibly can" https://t.co/tGVhBeNFFs
