Djokovic named in Serbia's ATP Cup team despite vaccine uncertainty ahead of Australian Open
Over the past few months, there has been a considerable amount of doubt surrounding whether World number one Novak Djokovic would compete at the Australian Open. Such uncertainty comes after Djokovic has refused to declare his Covid-19 vaccination status.
The teams and groups for the ATP Cup have now been announced and Djokovic has been entered to compete for Serbia’s national team, alongside Dusan Lajovic, Filip Krajinovic, Nikola Cacic, and Matej Sabanov.
The ATP Cup is being held in Sydney and according to the Australian Government’s Department of Health’s website, in order to enter into Australia, one must provide evidence that they have been vaccinated at least seven days prior to international travel.
That means that Djokovic won't be able to compete at the event unless he is vaccinated and if he truly intends to play at the ATP Cup it would mean he is going to get vaccinated. That would allow him to play at the Australian Open as well.
