Novak Djokovic has finally discovered his fate at the Australian Open after several days of uncertainty surrounding his participation at the event, and faces another lengthy legal battle. The decision comes after several remarkable days of uncertainty over his participation in the event, all caused by his refusal to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
Just days before the Australian Open begins, Hawke confirmed he had cancelled the Serbian's visa, effectively handing him a deportation notice.
Djokovic had intended to play in the tournament and defend his title after entering Australia using a medical exemption.
That medical exemption stemmed around a positive Covid-19 test on December 16, which would have allowed him to bypass the country's strict restrictions.
