Russian Daniil Medvedev answered a question about compulsory vaccination for participation in the Australian Open-2022.
– Am I going to get vaccinated if it will be necessary to participate in Australian tournaments? In this regard, I liked what Novak said. Looking beyond the title, he said he prefers to keep it to himself. Because tennis is a very difficult sport, because you play one on one with your opponent all the time. Any advantage you can give him is against you. Therefore, at some point, I decided that some medical indicators should be kept secret. I have never answered: am I vaccinated or not. We know that in Australia there is such a rule that if you are not vaccinated, then you can come, but you must be in quarantine for 14 days. It is impossible to play normally. I do not think that anyone will dare to do this. So here's an easy answer: everyone in Australia will see who is vaccinated. Of course, someone can say that he was traumatized at that time. But I want to play in Australia. That's all I want to say.
Medvedev is 25 years old, he has 13 titles under the auspices of the ATP. In September, the Russian won the US Open.
