Novak Djokovic has managed to revive a season that was in danger of being bankrupt. The former world number 1 played very little due to his choice not to get vaccinated against the Coronavirus and fell in the ATP ranking. The Serbian phenomenon missed the Australian Open and the US Open, two tournaments in which he would have started with the underdogs.

For the same reason, Nole also had to give up all the American Masters 1000 (Indian Wells, Miami, Montreal and Cincinnati). The 35-year-old from Belgrade redeemed himself by triumphing at Wimbledon for the seventh time in his career, without forgetting his successes in Rome, Tel Aviv and Astana.

Goran Ivanisevic’s protégé has thus taken off the pass for the ATP Finals in Turin, where he hopes to break a fast that has persisted since 2015. The 21-time Grand Slam champion wants to end the season well, waiting to know if he will be able to fly to Australia next time January.

Latest news on Nole Djokovic

Will Novak Djokovic be able to compete in the Australian Open or not? Here’s the big question.

Craig Tiley, director of Tennis Australia, has already opened the door for him, before putting himself aside in relation to politics and assured that he will not force the government to have the Serb see his ban on entering Australia for three years revoked.

Now, an expert on the subject argues that Nole should really be decriminalized. “He is not a risk to Australia, there is no risk factor associated with letting him in. It will not create a problem for the community. He is one of the best tennis players in the world and will bring many foreign visitors,” said Kon-ming Tsai, an immigration lawyer.

It remains to be seen whether the government will lift this three-year ban that Djokovic received when he was deported earlier this year. Novak Djokovic could stay at the top for another three years or so and win many more titles, his coach Goran Ivanišević has said.

“He was always physically fit and that was never a problem, and if he stays like that, I am convinced that he could stay at the top or near the top for another three years and fight for all the titles,” Ivanišević said.
