“I would have had the vaccine and gone and played but he’s got very strong beliefs and you have to respect that.“
“At this point, in the pandemic, we’re two and a half years in, I think people in all parts of the world know more about it, and the idea that he can’t travel here to play, to me is a joke.”
“I think it’s made it more complicated to do it because that has to wear on you mentally. Training this past month or six weeks not knowing whether he’s going to play, that’s going to put a strain on you mentally just as it was when he got thrown out of Australia. I think it took him three, four months to get his head right.” John McEnroe says
