The first Grand Slam tournament of the year, the Australian Open, has arrived. Over 60 of the world’s best tennis players compete at Melbourne Park. However, the world’s top-ranked male tennis player, Novak Djokovic, is not one of them.

The tennis star, and No.1 seed at the Australian Open, lost his appeal to the Australian government on Sunday morning over an earlier decision to cancel his visa. As a result, Djokovic was forced to leave the country after a three-judge panel ruled in favor of the Australian government. Moreover, there is still a possibility that the Australian government will impose a three-year ban on Djokovic from entering the country.

It has been said that Djokovic’s failure to be vaccinated would pose a public health risk in Australia and “could be counterproductive to vaccination efforts by others in Australia”.

Djokovic has already won the Australian Open nine times and was in search of his 21st career Grand Slam title. The 34-year-old is currently tied with Rafael Nadal, who is competing at the 2022 Australian Open, and Roger Federer for the most Grand Slam titles in sports history.

Last year’s women’s champion Naomi Osaka will defend her Australian Open title as the No. 13 seed. World No. 1 – and Australian Ash Barty is the favorite to win the women’s singles title this year.

The key players who will not take part in the Australian Open 2022 are Serena Williams, Dominic Thiem, Roger Federer, Milos Raonic, Kei Nishikori and Stan Wawrinka.
