Novak Djokovic is all set to return to professional tennis after being denied entry into the Australian Open 2022. The world No.1 has been away from tennis for quite a lot of time now and he is all set to make a return in just three and a half weeks.
Djokovic was going to play in the Australian Open and defend his title for the fourth consecutive year but was denied the opportunity due to his vaccination status. However, the rules at his next ATP event don’t require him to be vaccinated which means that the world No.1 is back in business.
Novak Djokovic back to the courts he belongs to
The world No.1 played his last game in November last year and his fans have been eager to watch him play. Djokovic’s plans on winning his 10th Australian Open title and his 21st grand slam were destroyed by the Australian government when they decided to deport him back to Serbia.
For a long time, there was a lot of uncertainty around his participation in any kind of tournament this year. However, now it is confirmed that Djokovic will be returning to action at the Dubai ATP 500 in three and a half weeks.
Djokovic has already won the Dubai Tennis Championships five times in his career and will be looking to make it a six. Although, his main goal will be to show his skills after all the humiliation that he received down under. He will be focused on making a smooth comeback into professional tennis and preparing himself for the coming grand slams.
Djokovic’s participation at the French Open is still uncertain since he is unvaccinated. However, he will be hoping to make it to a grand slam in 2022 and get the 21st title under his belt.
