Djokovic leaves without Marjan Vajda on North American tour

The new regulations due to the coronavirus prevent him from going with his entire entourage and he is left without his coach, for the Cincinnati Masters 1,000 and the US Open.


Novak Djokovic goes lame to the North American tour that will see the return of the activity to the ATP circuit. The new regulations imposed by the coronavirus pandemic prevent him from traveling to the United States with his entire entourage and one of those who has remained on the ground is Marjan Vajda.

Thus, Nole will not be able to dispose of the Slovak, who has trained him for most of his career, neither at the Masters 1,000 in Cincinnati (starts Thursday) nor at the US Open (since August 31), the first Grand Slam in times of coronavirus, which both Nadal, due to the health situation, and Federer, due to injury, have resigned.

The Serbian will be accompanied on his return to the slopes by Goran Ivanisevic, the other leg of his coaching staff; his agent, Edoardo Artaldi, and his physiotherapist, Ulysses Badiou. It will be two strange tournaments, especially a US Open without the mystique of a noisy Arthur Ashe that will look empty.

Among other additional measures, the United States Tennis Federation obliges the participants to sign a document in which they are exempted from any responsibility if any of them are infected or infect someone during the tournament and even in the event of death. Dominic Thiem or Alexander Zverev have also confirmed their presence at the event.
