Djokovich Backflips On Anti-Vax Stance Following Nadal’s Australian Open Win

Author Daniel Muksch, Novak Djokovic's biographer, has claimed that the tennis star may get the COVID-19 vaccine after all.

Muksch claims that his decision to backflip on his previous anti-vax position comes after watching Rafael Nadal become the world's most successful tennis player of all time.

World No.1, Djokovic, was forced to miss the Australian Open in Melbourne after being deported due to Australia's border entry policy that requires all arrivals to be, at least, double vaccinated. 

Nadal's win over Daniil Medvedev allowed the Spaniard to overtake rivals Djokovic and Roger Federer as the first man to have won 21 major tournaments in their career.

Speaking on Austrian TV, Muksch stated that "From what I have heard from those around him, I think he is getting vaccinated," 

"Rafael Nadal's 21 is driving him, no question."

Djokovic has not spoken publicly since his legal bid to stay in Australia failed in Mid-January.
