A season that was in danger of failing has been saved by Novak Djokovic. Due to his decision to forego a coronavirus vaccination, the former world number one played relatively little and dropped in the ATP rankings. The US Open and Australian Open were two competitions where the Serbian phenomenon would have started as the underdog.
Nole was forced to forfeit all of the American Masters 1000 events for the same reason (Indian Wells, Miami, Montreal and Cincinnati). Without forgetting his victories in Rome, Tel Aviv, and Astana, the 35-year-old Belgrade native made amends by winning Wimbledon for the eighth time in his career.
The protégé of Goran Ivanisevic has therefore removed the permit for the ATP Finals in Turin, where he aims to end a streak that has lasted since 2015. The 21-time Grand Slam winner wants to finish the year strong while he waits to see whether he will be able to travel to Australia in January.
The director of Tennis Australia, Craig Tiley, welcomed him but afterwards made it clear that he would not exert political pressure on the administration to end the ‘Djoker’s’ three-year suspension.

Novak Djokovic‘s ability to participate in the Australian Open is in question. Here’s the crucial query.
The director of Tennis Australia, Craig Tiley, has already thrown open the way for him. He then set politics aside and promised that he would not pressure the government to lift the Serb’s three-year entry ban.
Now, a subject matter expert claims that decriminalizing Nole is the best course of action. “He poses no threat to Australia, and allowing him entry carries no danger. There won’t be any issues for the neighborhood. One of the top tennis players in the world, he will bring a lot of international tourists, according to immigration lawyer Kon-ming Tsai.
When Djokovic was deported earlier this year, he was given a three-year ban, and it is unknown whether the government will lift it. According to his coach Goran Ivanievi, Novak Djokovic might maintain his position atop the sport for another three years or more and win a lot more championships.
Ivanievi remarked, “He was always physically fit and that was never a problem. If he keeps up with that, I am certain that he could stay at the top or near the top for another three years and compete for all the titles.
