Djokovic on obtaining a visa to participate in the Australian Open: “I felt relieved.  That’s the best news.”

Multiple Serbian Grand Slam winner Novak Djokovic said he felt relieved after it was announced that he could enter Australia to compete in the Australian Open.

On Tuesday, media reported that 35-year-old Djokovic could play at the Australian Open in 2023. Australia’s immigration department has decided to issue the athlete a visa, lifting a three-year ban on visiting the country. The Serb was kicked out of the country in early 2022 ahead of the tournament due to his refusal to get vaccinated.

Of course, I was very happy to receive this news yesterday. I felt relieved to know what my loved ones and I have been through this year in Australia and beyond. Now I have an idea of ​​the offseason and the start of next season. It took the pressure off me and my team a bit.

The Australian Open is my most successful Grand Slam tournament. I have the best memories of this tournament. Of course I want to go back, play tennis, do what I do best and hope to have a great Australian summer,” Djokovic told a press conference.

Djokovic has won the Australian Open nine times. The draw for the 2023 tournament will take place from January 16-29.
