Djokovic will play at the Australian Open

Novak Djokovic claims he has a “permit of exemption” to play the Australian Open without a vaccination against Covid-19.

Djokovic never revealed whether he is vaccinated against Covid-19, but he criticized the warrants that stipulate that players must be dubbed.

“I had some fantastic quality time with my loved ones on the break and I’m going to Australia today with a permit exemption,” he said in an Instagram post Tuesday.

The rules in Victoria, where the Australian Open will begin on January 17, stipulated that players had to be vaccinated twice against Covid-19.

Djokovic had previously been named to the Serbian squad for the ATP Cup in Sydney but then withdrew from the tournament which is a traditional warm-up for the Australian Open, leading to a mystery about his participation in the Grand Slam.
