Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic has been the victim of a visa crisis at the Australian Open. He had to return to the country without playing the first major tournament of the year even after going to Australia. The best tennis player of all time has finally returned to the court for the first time this year. And on the court he got to see Joy.
The Serbian number one started the Dubai Open with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Italian rising tennis star Lorenzo Musetti on Monday.
Djokovic, 34, was quite talented throughout the match. Zacco returned to the court with a victory after overcoming the mental anguish of not being able to play in the Australian Open in the Corona Vaccine controversy. Only Djokovic has realized the pain of not being able to get on the court despite being in Australia for 11 days.
However, his influence was not noticed in the match. This is his first match this year. He proved that he was the favorite to win the 10th Australian title by winning the Dubai Aviation Club in Daputa. In his absence, Rafael Nadal has won a record 21st Grand Slam title by winning the Australian Open.
Yesterday, the fans in Dubai have been very supportive of their favorite player. However, despite winning the Dubai Open for the sixth time in his career, he is still in danger of losing the number one position.
If world number two Daniel Medvedev wins the Acapulco title, the Russian star will be the world's new number one. But Djokovic has enjoyed a record 372 weeks at the top of the rankings.
