Djokovic says he has “exemption clearance” for Australia

Novak Djokovic appears to be heading for the Australian Open.

Top ranked Djokovic said in an Instagram post on Tuesday that he had an “exemption permit” to travel to Australia.

Djokovic has always refused to reveal if he was vaccinated against the coronavirus, a condition for playing in Melbourne.

If he plays in the first major tournament of the year, he will seek a record 21st Grand Slam singles title. He is tied with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal on the 20th.
