Will Novak Djokovic play in the Australian Open 2023?

It is confirmed that Novak Djokovic will play at the Australian Open. The decision to grant the 21-time grand slam title winner a temporary visa was announced by Immigration Minister Andrew Giles.

Djokovic's three-year ban from the country - which was in place until 2025 - has subsequently been overturned.

Ahead of the 2022 tournament, the Serbian attempted to enter the country whilst unvaccinated, which saw him held in a detention centre before being deported following a highly-publicised legal battle.

"It's a relief, obviously knowing what I and people closest to me in my life have been through this year with what happened in Australia and post-Australia obviously," Djokovic said.

"It's a relief, obviously knowing what I and people closest to me in my life have been through this year with what happened in Australia and post-Australia obviously," Djokovic said.

"I could not receive better news for sure - during this tournament as well. [The] Australian Open has been my most successful grand slam. I made some of the best memories there.

"I look forward to starting the new year in Australia and we'll see how the next year goes."
