Banned for three years from territory, Djokovic “awaiting” an answer for a visa

Novak Djokovic will he finally be able to participate in the next Australian Open ? If the player does not know it yet, he has already taken steps to be able to kick the ball in January in Melbourne. He said Monday on the sidelines of the Masters in Turin that his lawyers were negotiating with the Australian government for him to obtain a visa, but that he was still “awaiting” a response.

“There is nothing official yet. We are waiting. They (his lawyers) are talking to the Australian government, that’s all I can say at the moment,” the Serb said. Refusing the vaccine against Covid-19Djokovic had been held back when he arrived in Melbourne and then was sent off just before the start of the tournament in January 2022.

Since then, Australia no longer requires visitors to be vaccinated against Covid-19, but the player with nine record titles at the Australian Open had also received a three-year ban. There is still a little time for “Djoko” to change this situation. The 2023 edition of the tournament is indeed scheduled from January 16 to 29.
