He already struggled this year with an easy draw. Let the youngsters like Alcaraz or Sinner get one more year of experience and they certainly won’t make things easy for the Serb who will be 36 years old by then! Nadal himself could very well defeat him there if he stays healthy since their last match up there in 2018 was pretty even.

If he stubbornly remains unvaccinated the Australian ban may hold and he won’t be able to play the USO either. He also won’t have a chance at RG since Nadal will still be a lock at Paris.

Prospects don’t look too good for Novak.

Again, who can beat him there? Sinner is good but once Novak really upped his level it was over, Sinner couldn't even make it to a tiebreak in the last three sets. Alcaraz has been a bit overrated and will need more time.
Djokovic doesn't need much, just his serve and return combo alone gets it done against almost anyone. That's why I don't see anyone beating him there until at least 5 years from now.

Not taking the vaccine and risking AO / USO was always a calculated and weighted move, he knew he can win WB in his sleep for a long time.

It was a mental struggle after Australia and he prevailed. There's no stopping him now. He vanquished the demons.

Also, were you living in a cave this last month? There isn't any vaccine mandate In Australia. He doesn't need to be vaccinated to be there.

He'll very likely play every slam in 2023. It's just a matter of time now before he leaves Nadal in the dust as he's not going anywhere for another 5 years at least.

Don't be so smug! We have been hearing about downfall of Rafa since 2009, but he still alive, kicking and acing it out

He destroyed himself. He and his muppet wife knew he’d be banned after 2021. He could barely pay attention against Musetti, Tsit and Sinner. He can’t play more than 4 tournaments. His career is over, no matter how many Slam semis and finals he reaches. The fake alternative healing didn’t heal him intellectually or emotionally. When you lived with the Djokovics, you had no chance
