10 Jan 2022 | 09:58 | Tennis

Vasek Pospisil says the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) is showing a lack of leadership and failure to protect the rights of male players.

“No matter how you see the situation of Djokovic and the other players in Australia, note the silence of the ATP. They haven’t even made a simple statement in the last four days.” tennis player Vasek Pospisil writes on his personal page.

“ATP has shown many times that they don’t care about the players. Now they also show a lack of leadership when faced with real problems,” added the Canadian tennis player.

Pospisil and Novak Djokovic founded the Professional Tennis Players Association (PTPA) two years ago, to protect the interests of tennis players. They said the PTPA did not threaten the ATP’s position, but did not receive the support of other players, including Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Djokovic has been isolated since the morning of January 6 in a hotel for refugees in Melbourne (Australia) and awaits a court hearing on the morning of January 10 to find out if he can attend the Australian Open 2022.

The number one tennis player in the world, the reigning Australian Open champion, was granted a medical exemption by the organizers to compete despite not having a Covid-19 vaccine. However, the Australian Border Force refused entry to the 34-year-old tennis player when he canceled his visa.

Djokovic filed an appeal asking the court to review the decision. The Serbian tennis player’s lawyer said he tested positive for Covid-19 on December 16, 2021 and has recovered. So, he received an entry permit to Australia on January 1
