Novak Djokovic drawn to play Australian Open first round amid visa saga

Defending champion Novak Djokovic, who has been seeded one, has been drawn to play compatriot Miomir Kecmanovic in the first round of the 2022 edition of the Australian Open amid ongoing uncertainty over his visa status.

The world number one will be aiming for an unprecedented 10th title at the Melbourne Park and a record 21st Grand Slam title that will take him past Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the all-time list.

Earlier, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Thursday he did not want to comment on Novak Djokovic’s visa status and that it was up to the immigration minister to decide whether to revoke it or not.

Immigration Minister Alex Hawke is weighing exercising his discretionary powers to revoke top seed Djokovic’s visa which could scuttle the Serbian superstar’s bid for a record 21st major tennis title at the Australian Open.
