Australia cancels Novak Djokovic’s visa again

Novak Djokovic faces deportation from Australia after his visa was revoked for a second time by officials on Friday.

The big picture: The unvaccinated men’s world No. 1 was named the top seed in the draw of the tournament that starts Monday, despite uncertainty over his visa status.

  • The defending Australian Open champion won an appeal last Monday against the Jan. 6 cancellation of his Australian visa by border agents over his travel application and vaccination status.
  • The 34-year-old Serbian star was hoping to play for a record 21st Grand Slam title at the Australian Open, which begins on Monday.

Worth noting: Djokovic on Wednesday blamed his agent for his Australian travel application error and also apologized for not isolating after testing positive for COVID-19 in December.
