Djokovic, because he has not been vaccinated against covid-19, could not travel to the United States and play on "US Open". Then, because of his brother Gjorge's wedding, he also missed the group stage with the national team in Davis Cup in Valencia.

"Wimbledon" was not scored, and this decision of the ATP followed as a response to the organizers of the tournament to suspend the Russian and Belarusian tennis players. Thus, today Djokovic for the first time since "Roland Garros"will fight for points.
