As he is still awaiting feedback on his request to enter the United States in order to play at the Miami Open, Djokovic’s schedule for the next few weeks is uncertain, and organizers of an ATP Challenger Tour event in Italy have attempted to lure him to Sanremo at the last minute.
Due to his unvaccinated status as a foreign traveller, the world No. 1 cannot attend this week’s Indian Wells Open.
Djokovic has applied for a special exemption to compete in the Miami Open, but he is still waiting for an answer – although he did the same thing for Indian Wells, but withdrew last Monday.
Djokovic, who last competed at the Dubai Tennis Championships a week ago, has admitted that he will make his return to action at the Monte-Carlo Masters, starting on April 10.
When he was also banned from competing in the Sunshine Double in the United States last year, the Serbian initially struggled to get going as he lost his opener in the Principality.
The lack of game time affected him, and he hopes to avoid making the same mistakes again.
From March 27 to April 2, you can take part in the Sanremo Tennis Cup.
Using the hashtag #NoleComeToSanremo, the tournament is trying to lure Djokovic to the event.
According to ATP Tour rules, the tournament organisers won’t be able to present Djokovic with the trophy he won in 2005.
