Novak Djokovic withdraws from the US Open. He is unvaccinated against Covid-19 and not allowed to receive a visa and enter the country of his choice due to his high ranking.
Is this an isolated case or does this affect the vast majority of tennis players around the world?

After all, he is a big star and that means “they” want to make him even more famous through their biased reporting. This is the only way for all the media to promote themselves and sell their products, right?

It will make Djokovic even more unpopular in the eyes of the fans. He is going to take some time to recoup his losses but most of all he will be criticized for this. His fans will blame him for not reaching his potential. His critics will say that he could not get
