Novak Djokovic to play the Australian Open
Darren Walton |
After months of uncertainty, world No.1 and nine-times champion Novak Djokovic has finally confirmed his participation at the 2022 Australian Open.
Djokovic took to social media on Tuesday night to announce he was on his way to Australia after being granted a medical exemption.
“I’ve spent fantastic quality time with my loved ones over the break and today I’m heading Down Under with an exemption permission. Let’s go 2022,” he said on Instagram.
The Serbian superstar had repeatedly refused to disclose his vaccination status after the Victorian government mandated that only fully vaccinated players – and fans and staff – would be allowed into Melbourne Park.AAP
