Novak Djokovic to miss Australian Open due to vaccination status


Novak Djokovic is unlikely to play at the Australian Open unless rules over Covid-19 vaccinations are relaxed.

Unvaccinated players will not be allowed to compete at the 2022 event and defending champion Djokovic has declined to disclose his status.

World number one Djokovic has won the Australian Open a record nine times and is level on 20 Grand Slam wins with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
