Novak Djokovic's Australian Open drama engulfed the entire sports world with its wild twists and turns. Djokovic, who has adamantly refused to take the COVID-19 vaccine, was unable to enter Australia due to problems he encountered at the border with his visa. The drama not only prevented him from participating in the Australian Open, but it also clouded his potential participation at the tennis calendar's other Grand Slams. During the drama in Australia, France's sports minister made the shocking announcement that Djokovic would be able to play in the French Open regardless of his vaccine stance. That was seen as highly unlikely at the time, though the French Open's shocking announcement on their stance could be a huge boot towards Djokovic, per CBS Sports.

With France lifting protocols around COVID-19 vaccine passports, tennis star Novak Djokovic, who is not vaccinated, will now likely be able to compete in the French Open. Starting on March 14, vaccine passports will not be required in France.

This is potentially a massive boost to Novak Djokovic. Beginning on March 14, vaccine passports will no longer be required in France. With the French Open starting in late-May, that would mean that Djokovic would be able to enter the country and technically participate at Roland Garros.

Djokovic, whose outlook at the remaining Grand Slams looked grim after he doubled down on his vaccine stance, could now find himself in position to add to his trophy case at the French Open following this announcement.

One of tennis' biggest stars could be on the court at Roland Garros come May. The saga continues.
