The world’s No. 1-ranked men’s tennis player will not be able to compete in the Miami Open next week due to his COVID-19 vaccine status.

Novak Djokovic, who recently won his 22nd Grand Slam at the Australian Open, was denied an exemption to enter the United States, according to Miami Open tournament director James Blake.

“Obviously, we run one of the premier tournaments in the world, we’d like to have the best players that can play,” Blake told the Tennis Channel on Friday. “We did all that we could. We tried to talk to the government, but that’s out of our hands. We tried, and he wasn’t able to play.

“Same result that he had in Indian Wells, where I know Tommy Haas [Indian Wells tournament director] did as much as he could. We tried to get Novak Djokovic to be allowed to get an exemption, but that wasn’t able to happen.”
