Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic hopes to compete for his tenth Australian Open title in January after being kicked out of the country a year ago over his vaccination status.
He hopes a decision is made imminently on whether he can compete at the 2023 Australian Open, and revealed there are “unofficial positive signs” over a return to his most successful grand slam tournament.
The Serbian’s presence in Australia next January remains in doubt after he was kicked out of the country last year in a dramatic story that gripped the sport. He was forced to leave Melbourne after entering last year’s tournament due to not being vaccinated against COVID-19.
“When it comes to Australia, there are some positive signs, but unofficially” Djokovic stated. “We are communicating through my lawyers in Australia. In fact, they are communicating with the authorities in charge of my case.”
