Djokovic's canceled travel visa was upheld in court Sunday, meaning he'll be deported from Australia and unable to play in the Australian Open, Ben Rothenberg of The New York Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Djokovic's travel visa was initially canceled when he arrived in Australia about 10 days ago. He fought that decision in the courts and ultimately received a favorable ruling that allowed him to enter the county. However, Australia's Minister for Immigration, Alex Hawke, intervened Friday and once again canceled his travel visa on the grounds of national interest. Djokovic attempted to appeal that decision but it was upheld Sunday mere hours before the Australian Open is set to begin. So, the clear favorite to win the year's first major will be forced to withdraw from the event. What's unclear in the time ahead is if Djokovic will have similar issues traveling internationally to play other tournaments this season since he remains unvaccinated. Either way, Djokovic remains the best player in the sport and will be favored to win whatever tournament he's allowed to play in.
