Medical loophole could see Novak Djokovic defend Australian Open title.
Novak Djokovic has been named in the Serbian line-up for next January's ATP Cup team event, raising firm hopes the world No.1 will play in the Australian Open despite allegedly being unvaccinated.
Organisers have trumpeted that 18 of the world's top 20 players will take part in the 16-nation tournament in Sydney from January 1-9, with Djokovic leading the top-seeded Serbians.
Djokovic hadn't publicly committed to defending his Australian Open title at Melbourne Park or revealed his vaccination status, with a mandate that he be double-jabbed to play.
Novak Djokovic will travel to Australia in January amid ongoing speculation about his vaccination status. So will he bypass quarantine or get jabbed? https://t.co/Y8TwWMqwhC— Herald Sun (@theheraldsun) December 7, 2021
