John McEnroe Sounds off on Novak Djokovic Ban Exclusively to OutKick: ‘I Think It’s B.S.’

Tennis legend and commentator John McEnroe did not mince words when discussed the absurd treatment that Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic has had to deal with.

Djokovic, incredibly, remains banned from entering the United States due to his vaccination status.

This abhorrent policy continues even though the CDC updated their guidance to remove different recommendations for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals:


Clay Travis noted recently that Djokovic deserves an immense amount of credit for his willingness to stand up for what he believes in.

Travis also said that Djokovic should be allowed to play in the upcoming U.S. Open, saying it’s an “easy call” to allow him entry into the country.

McEnroe clearly agrees.

During an interview with Fox Digital, McEnroe was asked about his feelings on the Djokovic ban. In his trademark fashion, he did not hold back in these exclusive comments:

The 63-year old former world number 1 and prolific commentator saying that he “thinks it’s B.S.” will hopefully create some waves with authorities continuing to enforce the anti-science ban.

McEnroe also stated that Djokovic is “perfectly entitled” to make the decision that’s best for him and that “it’s frustrating to see at this point” that a world class athlete is barred from entering the country based on government mandates.

While acknowledging that those are the rules, McEnroe said that “it’s really unfortunate” that the U.S. won’t allow Djokovic into the country and that he doesn’t agree with it.

McEnroe is inarguably right to speak out in favor of letting him play.

On top of the fact that Djokovic just won Wimbledon and competed in the U.S. Open literally last year, it’s now the official guidance of the CDC that there is no difference between vaccinated and unvaccinated people with regards to catching or spreading COVID.


While the CDC’s announcement is at least a year too late, it at least provides official cover for authorities to finally rescind their offensive policies.

It’s hard to be at lower risk from COVID than Djokovic is; as a healthy world class athlete who’s already had the virus, there’s simply no justifiable reason for him to need the vaccine.

Not only will it provide little to no protective benefit from severe illness considering the low risk, but there are potential, albeit rare, complications like myocarditis that could affect men in his age group.

The only way that things permanently change with regards to COVID policy, is if influential figures like McEnroe continue to speak out against their inexcusable stupidity.

Hopefully his remarks are a sign of things to come, and a permanent end to the forced discrimination against Djokovic and all “unvaccinated” people.

  1. Vaccine injuries are not rare. Stop saying that. It’s complete bullshit. Millions of people have been injured and thousands have died. The NIH, CDC and FDA are burying their heads in the sand, because big pharma has completely corrupted these agencies. The CDC admitted that they’re not even monitoring VAERS like they said they would. Add to that VAERS notoriously is under reported by a factor of at least 7. Also go look at the increase in all cause mortality rates since the vaccine have rolled out. It’s huge and there is no other explanation. Go check out SCI’s (largest, nationwide funeral home company) earnings report, their business has exploded in the same timeframe. And insurance companies have had record life insurance payouts. And what about all of the young athletes dropping dead all over the place?

    Stop saying side effects are rare. They are not and your reporting is inaccurate.. And let’s not forget there is no 5 or 10 year safety data on at all. None, zero. I wouldn’t be feeling to good about taking it right about now. It does protect you, stop you from spreading it nor preventing severe illness or death. These people who have pushed it need to be held accountable. All of them. There’s no free pass on this one.

    • Only 5% of those getting infected are the non-vaccinated who have gotten the virus (standard immunity) the overwhelming number of those testing positive now upwards of 30% are those who have been vaccinated. The vaccine does little to prevent infection – the science is documented. Considering his exceptional health Djokavic is statistically not at risk. Period.
