A While Australian Open organizers kept hoping to see Novak Djokovic in action until the last second, he appeared in the order of the game Monday in Monday night’s session, The Australian Federal Court has not yet suspended the Immigration Minister Alex Hawke’s decision on the deportation of tennis players.

In this way, the Serbs had to leave Australian soil today on the first flight to Europe. The decision could lead to Djokovic, the men’s record in weeks as world number one, lost that state for the sake of Daniil Medvedev.

The Russian will oust Djokovic from the throne if he wins the title on January 30. And the current Open champion will be deducting 2,000 points for not being able to defend the crown.

Medvedev, finalist in 2021, add 800 net points if win. Currently the difference between the two is 2,080 points.

No access to United States and United Kingdom

Dokovic will have a hard time regaining his leadership as he can’t enter the United States because he wasn’t vaccinated, so he will miss the Masters 1,000 in Indian Wells and Miami. And on the horizon are 2,000-point winning defenses at Roland Garros and Wimbledon. Vaccinations are also required in the UK to cross its borders.
