Very positive reception for Novak Djokovic! The Serb was greeted with huge applause by fans at the Australian Open. Last year, Djokovic was not allowed to take part in the first Grand Slam of the year because the Serb was not vaccinated against Corona.

Novak Djokovic celebrates his comeback at the Australian Open. The Serb missed the tournament last year after having to leave the country before the first serve due to a visa that was declared invalid. The 35-year-old Serb meets the Spaniard Roberto Carballes Baena in his first round match on Tuesday. The tournament favorite was recently struggling with muscle problems.

Boris Becker is also happy about the return of tennis superstar Novak Djokovic to the Australian Open. “In my opinion, he is the absolute top favorite and was also missing from the tennis scene last year – even if Rafael Nadal will see it differently now,” said the six-time Grand Slam tournament winner at Eurosport. “I think it’s good that he’s back. The Australian fans welcomed him happily, almost euphorically. He feels very comfortable in Australia.”

“The ailment seems to have been resolved, but he’s also under pressure,” said Becker, who commented on the games for Eurosport again after his release from prison: “He wants to get Nadal’s Grand Slam record, but he’s already 35 years old and will don’t play forever.” With a tenth triumph in Australia, Djokovic could draw level with Grand Slam record winner Rafael Nadal (22).
