Novak Djokovic begins again in Australia

With Serbia not entered in the United Cup, Novak Djokovic has chosen the Adelaide Open to start his 2023 season.This is an ATP 250 that, among the entrants, sees top-tier tennis players among Nole’s potential opponents, such as Felix Auger-Aliassime, Daniil Medvedev or Andrey Rublev.

What matters most, for the former ATP No. 1, however, is having set foot in the island-continent again after the chaos on the eve of the Australian Open, which almost led to a diplomatic clash between the country hosting the first Slam of the season and Serbia: “It’s good to be back in Australia,” Djokovic said at a press conference. “What happened a year ago was not easy for me, nor for my family or my team, nor for all the people who were close to me.

However, Nole is ready to put it all behind him: “Having to leave the country like that was not good. This year, however, I really hoped to get permission to compete here again because it is where I was able to win the most in my career, having won the Australian Open nine times.”
