  • Top-ranked tennis player Novak Djokovic was included in the Australian Open draw as top seed Thursday while the government considers whether to revoke his visa for a second time.
  • Australia’s immigration minister could use discretionary power to cancel Djokovic’s visa over concern about the Serbian’s medical exemption from Australia’s COVID-19 vaccination rules.
  • Djokovic’s status remains uncertain after Thursday’s draw was held following a 75-minute delay to determine the brackets for the men’s and women’s singles draws at the first major tennis tournament of 2022.
