ATP Says 97 Percent of Top 100 Players are Vaccinated

As Novak Djokovic again faces deportation after the Australian government revoked his visa for the second time Friday, the ATP submitted a release earlier this week, outlining how most of the world's Top 100 men's players have been vaccinated against COVID-19.

After Djokovic's initial court hearing Monday, when a judge overturned the rejection of tennis star's original medical exemption, the ATP released the following statement:

ATP continues to strongly recommend vaccination for all players on the ATP Tour, which we believe is essential for our sport to navigate the pandemic. This is based on scientific evidence supporting the health benefits provided and to comply with global travel regulations, which we anticipate will become stricter over time.
