Herbert was quoted as telling France’s L’Alsace: “I personally am not a restaurant and a trip to Australia was not an option for me.

“Certainly from the moment I couldn’t go there without getting vaccinated, it was necessarily complicated. And there’s not just Australia. Today, there’s the United States and Austria… It’s a rather complicated topic.

On the other hand, not getting vaccinated is a personal choice.

Herbert and his French colleague Nicolas Mahut crowned the men’s doubles title at the 2019 Australian Open.

They claimed their fifth Grand Slam title as a pair at this year’s French Open.
