Novak Djokovic could be barred from playing at the French Open as the country’s sports ministry said on Monday that there would be no exemption from France’s new vaccine pass law. World number one Djokovic, who has not been vaccinated against COVID-19, was deported from Australia on Sunday ahead of the year’s first Grand Slam tournament after a court order to cancel his visa. The case was lost. France’s Vaccine Pass law, approved by parliament on Sunday, requires people to carry a certificate of vaccination to enter public places such as restaurants, cafes, cinemas and long-distance trains. As soon as the law comes into force, vaccine passes will be imposed in establishments that were already subject to health passes,” the ministry said. “This will apply to anyone who is a spectator or a professional player. And it will be applicable until further notice.
