No you dont need the vaccine to compete. Jokovic had a medical exemption and could compete having met local state government and tournament regulations to do so. However you do need to meet federal government regulations to enter Australia without quarantine which he appears to have not fully met, at least until the judge rules otherwise next week which is appropriate if somewhat confusing for those who don't understand the Australia separation of powers between the federal government and the sovereign states under the Australian constitution.It's not very "open" if you have to take a series of dangerous, ineffective injections in order to compete.
As for the safety or effectiveness or otherwise of vaccinations I analyse the data and make my own choice to be vaccinated, as have 95% of Australians, with better results than some other places in the world who like to listen to scare campaigns and suffer the consequences while nobly asserting their right to be wrong which in most democracies still fortunately exists
