Benjamin Butterworth blatantly attacked Novak Djokovic, winner of Wimbledon 2022. The journalist clashed over the positions of the Serbian champion regarding the vaccine. Butterworth explained: “The vaccine is essential if you want to defeat the Coronavirus and the position of Novak Djokovic does not help. Nole is one of the most dangerous people on the planet right now. Novak has put many people at risk with his actions and he doesn’t even realize it. We know vaccinated people are far less likely to transmit the virus, so it’s a huge benefit to undergo the double dose.
Although he is one of the most famous men in the world and has a great responsibility, Djokovic has chosen to use his image of him to induce others not to get vaccinated.” During the Wimbledon tournament, the Serbian reiterated that he didn’t want to get vaccinated: “I’ll wait for some good news from the United States, because I’d like to play a couple of tournaments before the US Open.
If that doesn’t happen, I’ll have to find an alternative solution. sincere, I doubt I’ll go hunting for points.” Djokovic at Wimbledon 2022
Novak Djokovic clinched his seventh Wimbledon title last Sunday, reviving a season that was in danger of becoming bankrupt.

The first six months of 2022 had not given particular joys to the former number 1 ATP, who paid a very high price for his choice not to get vaccinated against the Coronavirus.
In addition to not being able to defend the title at the Australian Open, the 35-year-old from Belgrade ended up in the eye of the storm and suffered serious damage to his image. In the current state of affairs, Nole could not travel to the US to compete in the American Masters 1000 and the US Open. In a press conference following his triumph in London, Djokovic revealed that he will not play minor tournaments to hunt for points.
