    Zverev: “Don’t know enough about the situation”

    The start of the Serbian defending champion Djokovic at the Grand Slam tournament starting on Monday is still questionable. A federal court in Melbourne will deal with the 34-year-old’s objection on Sunday. Immigration Minister Alex Hawke declared the world number one’s visa invalid on Friday and also justified it with the public interest. Djokovic is the record Australian Open winner with nine titles.”I don’t know enough about the situation, but I think if it wasn’t for Novak Djokovic, the world number one with 20 Grand Slam titles, all of that, it wouldn’t be such a big one drama,” said Zverev. (dpa/mf) Updated on January 14th, 2022, 2:24 p.m. Novak Djokovic is in Australia, but it is not yet clear whether he will be allowed to compete at the Australian Open. What is certain, however, is that Djokovic’s image was damaged when he entered Australia as an unvaccinated and probably newly recovered quarantine refuser. A chronology of events. (dpa/ska)
