Djokovic, closer to playing the Australian Open

by archysport

News of enormous importance and depth that has been known and that has spread the Serbian medium Blic. It seems that the number one in the world and nine times champion of the Open de Australia, the serbian Novak Djokovic, is much closer now to being able to go to Melbourne and play the first Grand Slam of the season. The change in situation is due to the fact that the organization of the ocean tournament would be in talks with the authorities of the state of Victoria, requesting that it issue a medical exemption for Nole and in this way he can play the tournament without having to be vaccinated and pass the bubble.

It must be remembered that Djokovic had resigned from the ATP Cup, for which he was signed. His involvement in Melbourne looked increasingly obscure without a change in COVID conditions and policy in the state of Victoria. This was known by the organizers of the Australian Open and according to the Blic media, from sources close to the event, they would be in talks with the authorities to discuss this issue. The tournament considers that the absence of Djokovic would be a blow of great magnitude for the first Grand Slam of the year, and this is something that they would have transmitted to the state of Victoria. Obviously, knowing that this event is a huge asset for the economy, tourism and the definitive image of this territory and in general of all of Australia.

Even with a medical exemption, you would need quarantine

The idea is not only that Djokovic can play in Australia but also that other players from the top positions in the ranking can be in the oceanic event through this medical exemption that the tournament wants to be enabled. The problem is that today, the obligation to comply with the bubble continues. Quarantine is still essential for all those tennis players who are not vaccinated even with a medical exemption. And the Australian Open will start in 20 days. Here things get complicated and in the next few hours or days it has to be clarified to see what option is taken and what option Novak Djokovic or others in his situation would also adopt.
