After receiving a visa to enter the country, Novak Djokovic will begin his campaign for a 10th Australian Open title at the Adelaide International, organizers announced on Wednesday.
The world number five missed the first Grand Slam of 2022 because he was deported due to his vaccination status. As a result of a high-stakes legal battle, Novak Djokovic will begin his campaign at Adelaide International.
After a high-stakes legal battle, the world number five was deported due to his vaccination status and missed the first Grand Slam of 2022. Since then, Australia no longer requires visitors to show proof of their Covid vaccination, and the government overturned its three-year ban in November.
At the time, Djokovic described it as “a relief.” The Australian Open has been my best Huge home run.” “Added he. There, I had some of my best memories.”
From January 1 to 8, Djokovic will compete against a strong field that also includes two-time Wimbledon champion Andy Murray and ranked six, seven, and eight, respectively, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Daniil Medvedev, and Andrey Rublev.
The defending champion of the Australian Open, longtime rival Rafael Nadal, will instead prepare for the Grand Slam by competing in the United Cup, a brand-new mixed teams event in Perth, Brisbane, and Sydney.
Four of the world’s main 10 ladies will start the year in Adelaide, with second-positioned Ons Jabeur, world number five Aryna Sabalenka, world number eight Daria Kasatkina, and world number nine Veronika Kudermetova all entered.
Victoria Azarenka, who has won the Australian Open twice, Elena Rybakina, who won the Wimbledon in 2022, and Grand Slam champions Jelena Ostapenko and Bianca Andreescu round out the field.
When announcing the lineup for the ATP-WTA event, tournament director Alistair MacDonald stated, “We are thrilled to confirm such a world-class lineup for week one of the Adelaide International.” From January 16 to January 29, Melbourne Park will host the Australian Open.
