As the schedule of Novak Djokovic for the new season 2023 is known, the director of the Australian Open, Craig Tiley, points out that he expects the Serbian tennis player to arrive in Australia next week.
- We are focused on welcoming Djokovic, since he will arrive next week. He will play in Adelaide and then at the Australian Open. I have talked to him over the years, he is a great champion. He plays the best tennis and will be my favorite. He is popular in Australia, as he has a large fan base in this country. – pointed out Tiley and added:
Novak did not play in the 2022 Australian Open because he was deported due to irregularities in his medical exemption, as deemed by the Australian government.
- The last two years have been difficult for everyone in the world, not only at the Australian Open. If you take a step back and look at it, those circumstances were out of our control. Do we wish it hadn’t happened? Absolutely. Did we do everything we could at that moment? Yes, we did. – concluded Craig Tiley.
This year, Djokovic will have the opportunity to fight for his 10th title in his career.
