Still no decision. Novak Djokovic’s visa, returned by Australian justice on Monday, is still valid and the Serbian continues his preparation for the Australian Open (January 17 to 30). The world number one is heading for the moment towards a participation in the Grand Slam tournament. The latter learned Thursday, January 13 the identity of his opponent in the first round after a draw that began well after the scheduled time.

He will face his young compatriot Miomir Kecmanovic, 22 years old and current 78th player in the world. The two men had already stared at each other on the court, in April 2021 on the clay court of Belgrade, with an easy victory for Djokovic in the quarter-finals (6-1, 6-3). Their second confrontation will therefore take place on hard, provided that the visa of the “Djoker” is not canceled by then.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison spoke briefly at a press conference about the situation of the player, whose vaccination exemption had not convinced when he entered the territory. According to him, the position of Immigration Minister Alex Hawke, who has the personal power to cancel the Serbian’s visa, “did not change“. It is understood that the reflection is still ongoing.
