Everything indicates that Novak Djokovic will have the opportunity to defend his title at Roland Garros but from the organization of the tournament they have wanted to send him a notice. Amalie Mauresmo, director of the tournament, made it clear that nothing is opposed to his return but from the French Tennis Federation they assured that the restrictions of the Government of France will have to be taken into account.
"Nothing opposes the return of Djokovic," said Mauresmo at the press conference to present the news of the Grand Slam on clay that begins in two months. The former number one in the world, who replaced Guy Forget at the head of the tournament a little over three months ago, assured that "in any case there will be the best possible representation."
The president of the French Tennis Federation (FFT), Gilles Moretton, owner of Roland Garros, specified that the participation of Djokovic , who could not play the last Australian Open due to his refusal to be vaccinated against covid, is subject to the restrictions imposed by the Gallic Executive.
"It does not depend on us. There is a virus that is circulating, we are attentive, cautious with what has been happening for two years. The Government has taken measures and we are not on the sidelines. For now we all think that things are going well," he said.
