Novak Djokovic is worried that his stance over a potential coronavirus vaccination could signal the end of his record-breaking tennis career.

Due to ongoing pandemic, several tournaments have been suspended.

The 32-year-old believes that vaccinations could be made common in order for the tennis calendar to return to the schedule.

“Personally I am opposed to vaccination and I wouldn’t want to be forced by someone to take a vaccine in order to be able to travel,” he said in a live Facebook chat on Sunday.

“But if it becomes compulsory, what will happen? I will have to make a decision.

“I have my own thoughts about the matter and whether those thoughts will change at some point, I don’t know. Hypothetically, if the season was to resume in July, August or September, though unlikely, I understand that a vaccine will become a requirement straight after we are out of strict quarantine and there is no vaccine yet.”
