Djokovic included in Australian Open draw despite unsolved visa issue

ANKARA (AA) - Novak Djokovic was included in the Australian Open official draw on Thursday, although it is still uncertain whether the government will cancel his visa for a second time.

World no. 1 was drawn with fellow Miomir Kecmanovic, who is ranked 78th, for his first-round match.

On Jan. 4, Djokovic said he had been granted a medical exemption from being vaccinated for COVID-19, but after his arrival, the Australian Border Force canceled his visa.

After he was sent to an immigration detention hotel in Melbourne, a federal court ordered his release.

Australia mandates all players to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to compete in this year's first major tennis tournament.

Djokovic has refused to say whether he is vaccinated for the coronavirus.​​​​​​​
