Novak Djokovic had a terrific outing in the recently concluded Wimbledon 2022 as the Serb successfully defended his title. Djokovic is now just one short of Rafael Nadal's tally of 22 Grand Slam titles but faces a huge hurdle on the way as he might be not permitted to take part in the upcoming US Open competition.

However, Novak Djokovic, who had a forgettable start to the season as he decided to remain unvaccinated and missed out on several tournaments including the Australian Open, has once again reiterated that he is not willing to get vaccinated in the future and hoping the organisers to make some amendments in the rules ahead of the US Open.

Novak Djokovic, who faced massive criticism for his decision to not get vaccinated, has gotten the backing of American cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough as the latter recently claimed that there is enough medical evidence to show that the Covid-19 vaccines cause heart damage.

While speaking to Dave Martin on NTD News, Dr McCullough stated that 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 possible risk," McCullough said.

He further informed that heart damage can lead to heart failure or tragically, sudden death. "Novak Djokovic has clearly made the right choice and the vaccine injuries extend beyond the heart. There can be skeletal muscle, the nerves, the brain, so much of what an elite tennis player, is at risk when they take a Covid vaccine," he said.

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 should not have any more restrictions than the general public. In a recently concluded survey, researchers found that athletes with vaccines have a lower rate of COVID-19 than the general student population," he concluded.
