According to recent news, the US government will relax some restrictions regarding quarantine and maintaining social distancing. This could be great news for Novak Djokovic and his chances of playing at the US Open at the end of this month.

However, the current rule will only apply to people currently residing in the United States. However, this rule change could mean the government is ready to change a few rules to help people.

Also, he wrote an upbeat message in the caption, about not giving up on his dream of playing at this year’s US Open.

It’s been a torrid season for Djokovic as he recently decided to stay out of the Cincinnati Open as well, adding to the long list of tournaments the former world No. 1 has missed this year. Although the Serbian pulled out at the last minute, most of the tennis world knew that the chances of that happening were very high.
