"I can only see criticism lately and much of it is malicious", Djokovic told the Serbian newspaper, Sportski Zurnal, according to TMZ.
Djokovic said it would make things tough on him if he couldn't bring his entourage to Manhattan, and his desire to play at the U.S. Open hasn't wavered.
The Serbian's exhibition tour, which took place in June across the Serbian capital of Belgrade and the Croatian city of Zadar, had to be cancelled early after Djokovic and three other players all tested positive for COVID-19.
After calling out Djokovic, Kyrgios became embroiled in a social media spat with Boris Becker after branding German world number seven Alexander Zverev "selfish" after he was filmed dancing in a room full of people just days after the Adria Tour event. They were upset over the decision to stage such an event with large crowds in attendance, where players shook hands and posed for photos with volunteers, while some were also seen partying at a nightclub despite concerns over a lack of social distancing measures.
Novak Djokovic has accused critics of subjecting him to a "witch-hunt" after his regional Adria Tour tennis event ended in a coronavirus fiasco and said he was still uncertain whether he would play at the US Open.
Djokovic and his wife, also tested positive for the virus, recovered from it and tested negative recently.
"Obviously there is something more than criticism, as if there is an agenda, someone has to "fall", a personality, a big name has to be the main culprit for everything", he said.
"We complied with all the laws and regulations".
"My plan was as soon as pure, I was as soon as total-heartedly dedicated to organizing a humanitarian tournament to serve avid gamers and tennis federations in the [Balkan] situation".
According to Johns Hopkins University data, 32,251 people have died of coronavirus in NY state. "I don't think it is, I think that we must learn from all of this and to adapt as we go along".
First it was Nadal who confirmed that he will be at the Madrid Open, a tournament that starts in the week after NY and that would allow him to add 640 points in case of victory (the 2,000 of the US Open would not lose them with the modifications of the ranking).
