Novak Djokovic Denied Visa For Australian Open | The Story So Far
The nine-time Australian Open champion, who has won consecutive titles at Melbourne Park since 2019, had initially been granted a medical exemption to compete in the tournament.
However, lawyers for the federal government told the court the country's immigration minister was reserving the right to exercise his personal power to again revoke Djokovic's visa.
World No. 1 tennis player Novak Djokovic will be allowed to play in the French Open even if he is not vaccinated against Covid-19, France's sports minister Roxane Maracineanu said on Friday.
Djokovic, 34, has refused to reveal his vaccination status, but last year said he was "opposed to vaccination".
"18 of the top 20 tennis players in the world will feature in the tournament set to run from January 1-9 as the main ATP precursor to the Australian Open."
Djokovic's world No. 1 ranking could be threatened if he decides to skip the Australian Open in protest against the organisers' decision to not allow unvaccinated players to compete in the year's opening major.
There were no changes at No. 1 during the season for the first time since 2015, the only other time Djokovic held the top spot without any interruptions in the year.
It was the 14th time this season that Djokovic rallied to victory from a set down to capture his sixth Paris Masters title.
Djokovic, after winning the first three majors of the year, was trying to become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win all four majors in one season and break a tie with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal for the most major titles in history (20 each).
