Novak Djokovic won’t be allowed to play at Australian Open unless vaccinated


The world’s best tennis player will not reveal whether he has been vaccinated, and it could cost him a place at the Australian Open.

Novak Djokovic will not be allowed to play at next year’s Australian Open if he is not fully vaccinated.

Immigration Minister Alex Hawke confirmed on Wednesday morning that any sports stars hoping to compete in Australian competitions this coming summer would need to have had both doses of a TGA-approved vaccine.

“Our health advice is that when we open the borders, everyone that comes to Australia will have to be double vaccinated,” Mr Hawke told RN Breakfast.

The blunt message from Mr Hawke comes after Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews

World No.1 Djokovic has declined to reveal whether he has been vaccinated, telling a Serbian newspaper earlier this week that it was a “private matter”.
