The World No.1 Novak Djokovic visa saga in Australia continues as the Serbian was on Thursday drawn to start his Australian Open campaign against Miomir Kecmanovic.
Earlier, Djokovic reached Australia for year’s first Grand Slam with a certificate claimig exemption from vaccination after testing positive for COVID-19 in December.
There are still doughts on his participation in the mega tournament in Australia.
Earlier on Thursday the Victoria government and Tennis Australia announced that crowds would be capped at 50 percent for this year’s event due to the spiraling Omicron outbreak in the state.
“These updates to arrangements for the Australian Open will mean that fans, players and the workforce can look forward to a terrific COVID-safe event in Australia’s event capital,” Victorian Tourism Minister Jaala Pulford said in a statement.
