CNN reports that "Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic may not be able to defend his 2021 title after his visa to enter Australia was canceled, Health Minister Greg Hunt said in an on-camera interview . . . ." Djokovic "failed to provide appropriate evidence to meet the entry requirements for Australia and visa has been subsequently canceled," he said.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion traveled to Melbourne after receiving a medical exemption to play in the tournament. But he is reportedly being held at the airport after applying for a visa that does not permit medical exemptions for being unvaccinated.
