Shortly before the end of the season, Novak Djokovic received clearance to travel to Australia. The Serbian tennis player will start his year 2023 by playing the ATP 250 in Adelaide then he will go in search of his tenth seal at the Australian Open.
Fans hope that Djokovic can play more tournaments in 2023, but the latest news is not reassuring in this regard. Novak will be able to play at the Australian Open 2023, but his presence in Indian Wells and Miami is in serious doubt.
The US government has imposed new restrictions due to rising cases in China. The United States has indeed joined India, Italy, Taiwan, South Korea, Malaysia and Japan in announcing new measures after the abrupt end of the zero-Covid policy in China caused an increase sudden cases in recent days.
“All foreign passengers traveling to the United States must prove that they are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. Only limited exceptions apply to this requirement,” the current guidelines state. Considering what happened in 2022, Nole is at serious risk of having to skip the US Open and all US Masters 1000s in 2023 as well.
What happened to him in 2022
2022 has certainly not been an easy year for Novak Djokovic. The Serbian champion encountered many difficulties due to his choice not to be vaccinated against the Coronavirus and found himself in the eye of the storm following the Australian soap opera.
The former ATP number 1 had to give up the Australian Open and the US Open, two tournaments in which he would have been the big favorite for victory. The 35-year-old Belgrader also missed all the American Masters 1000, while having suffered serious damage to his image.
It took longer than expected to see the best Nole again, who won his seventh Wimbledon title by equaling Pete Sampras. The 21-time Grand Slam champion enriched his year by also winning the ATP Finals in Turin, the Internazionali BNL d’Italia, the ATP 500 in Astana and the ATP 250 in Tel Aviv.
