While playing doubles at the Adelaide International, Novak Djokovic made a rare visit to Australia and was warmly welcomed back. Due to his lack of the Covid-19 vaccine, the Serb was deported before the Australian Open in 2022.
In November, Djokovic’s three-year visa ban was lifted, enabling him to enter the nation. On his return, he and Vasek Pospisil of Canada were defeated by Tomislav Brkic and Gonzalo Escobar, losing 4-6, 6-3, and 10-5. The crowd cheered and chanted “Novak, Novak” when the 21-time Grand Slam champion entered the court and continued to do so throughout the entire match.
As part of his preparation for the Australian Open, the first major of the year, which begins on January 16, he is the top seed in the singles event in Adelaide and will play Frenchman Constant Lestienne in the first round on Tuesday. With nine victories in Melbourne, Djokovic is one Grand Slam victory away from Rafael Nadal’s men’s record of 22 victories.
