Australian Open director Tiley: I’m sure Djokovic wants to win the tournament for the tenth time
MOSCOW, 25 Nov – The director of the Australian Open, Craig Tiley, believes that the first racket of the world, Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic, will take part in the tournament.
Earlier it was reported that the authorities of the Australian state of Victoria banned tennis players not vaccinated against coronavirus from entering the region, who will take part in the competition. Djokovic and a number of other players choose not to disclose their coronavirus vaccination status. Previously, the Serb questioned the protection of the title in 2022 due to restrictive measures.
“Novak has won nine times at the Australian Open. I am sure he wants to do it for the tenth time. He has 20 victories in Grand Slam tournaments like Rafael Nadal, who is coming, and Roger Federer. One is going to beat the other, and I don’t think that Novak will want to give the title to someone else, “- quotes the words of Tiley Reuters referring to the radio station SEN.
The Australian Open Tennis Championships will take place in Melbourne from 17 to 30 January 2022.
