Turin, Italy, Nov 16 (Prensa Latina).- The Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic confessed today that he is happy to be able to play the next Australian Open, after missing the first Grand Slam of the season this year.

The player confirmed this Wednesday that he received a visa to be able to travel to Melbourne in January, despite the fact that he was prohibited from entering the country after his expulsion 12 months ago for not vaccinating against Covid-19.

I am very happy to receive the news. It’s a relief, said the Serb here, where he plays the ATP Finals.

On the other hand, the racket player congratulated the Spanish Carlos Alcaraz, who will end the season as number one on the circuit.

He deserves it, there is no doubt about it. I don’t want to get into the discussion of whether I’ve played less or more, it is what it is. The reality is that he is number one, he deserves to be there. He won a Grand Slam and many matches, he stated.

In a press conference after certifying his pass to the semifinals of the Masters Cup after beating the Russian Andrey Rublev, Djokovic added that he sees many positive things for the young Iberian player.

I think he is a great player for our sport. He is a very nice guy, he works very hard. He has a good team of people around him. I can only find positive things to say about him, he commented.
