Despite being named in the draw for the Indian Wells 2022, Novak Djokovic has been forced to withdraw from the tournament. 

Djokovic has been denied entry into the United States due to his unvaccinated status.

Regulations require any non-US citizen to have the Covid-19 vaccination before coming into the country.

Djokovic revealed on Twitter that the CDC will not be changing, leaving him no choice but to withdraw.
