Novak Djokovic's wife lashes out at journalist for calling Wimbledon champion 'anti-vax poster boy'

Having recently won his seventh Wimbledon trophy, Novak Djokovic's participation in this year's US Open hangs in doubt due to his Covid-19 vaccination status. The Serbian tennis star defeated Nick Kyrgios in the final at the All England Club but also confirmed after the win that he would not be getting vaccinated. Taking to Twitter, tennis journalist Ben Rothenberg stated that Wimbledon could be 'Djokovic's last Grand Slam event of the year'. Calling him the 'anti-vax posterboy', Rothenberg also explained that the Serb won't be able to participate in the US Open due to the country's immigration law. But the journalist received backlash from Djokovic's wife Jelena, who called his narrative judgemental.
