This comes after the world No. 2 was eliminated at the Australian Open in January when his visa was rejected for failing to meet COVID-19 requirements.

Djokovic tweeted: “While I was automatically entered into the @BNPPARIBASOPEN and @MiamiOpen draws, I knew it would be unlikely that I would be able to travel.

“The CDC has confirmed that the regulations will not change, so I cannot play in the US.

“Good luck to those who compete in these great tournaments.”

Djokovic was deported from Australia two months ago after losing his appeal against having his visa annulled.

The Serbian star has refused to change his stance on the Coronavirus vaccinations.

The 34-year-old also hinted that he would be willing to miss further tennis Tournaments because of his faith.

Djokovic told the BBC last month: “I’ve never been against vaccinations.

“But I’ve always supported the freedom to choose what you put in your body.

“Because the principles of decision-making are more important to my body than any title or anything else.

“I try to be in harmony with my body as much as possible.”
