Telegraf exclusive: Novak Djokovic will play the Australian Open!
The world's best tennis player will defend the title in Melbourne
The saga around whether Novak Djokovic will play at the Australian Open this year has lasted for a long time, but as Telegraf has unofficially learned, the world's top tennis player has definitely received the "green light" and will defend his title in Melbourne!
In recent days, there has been information that Novak will not travel to the ATP Cup in Sydney, which is a preparatory tournament for the Australian Open, but on Tuesday the PR service of the tournament announced that no official confirmation from Novak Djokovic had arrived and that he had not canceled his participation at the unofficial "tennis world championship."
As we have learned, Novak will play the ATP Cup in Sydney, but also the Australian Open, where he will go for a record 21st Grand Slam title.
Will Novak Djokovic play at the Australian Open?
Novak is the record holder at the Australian Open, having won the tournament nine times, and now he will try to reach the 10th title, but also become the Grand Slam champion with most titles in history, because he is currently tied with Nadal and Federer having won 20 of the biggest trophies.
Novak should play his first match in Australia on January 1 in the first round of the ATP Cup tie between Serbia and Norway, when he will face Casper Ruud. The ATP Cup is played in Sydney January 1-9, while the Australian Open is on January 17-30.
