WIMBLEDON, England (AP) – Reigning Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic might be playing in his last Grand Slam tournament for a while because he isn’t vaccinated against COVID-19.

And the coronavirus has become a significant matter at the All England Club: Three of the top 20 seeded men in the tournament have pulled out of the bracket after testing positive.

Players aren’t required to get tested for COVID-19 but are encouraged to if they develop symptoms.

They also are encouraged to let Wimbledon know if that happens and pull themselves out of the tournament.

No. 8 Matteo Berrettini, No. 14 Marin Cilic and No. 17 Roberto Bautista Agut have done that so far.
