Djokovic Could Miss the Australian Championship
Victoria is asking players participating in the Australian Open to get vaccinated or risk missing the tournament.
Some of the world's leading tennis players will have to be vaccinated against the Coronavirus, otherwise, they will not be allowed to participate in the upcoming Australian Open.
Among these players is nine-time Australian Open champion, Novak Djokovic, who still refuses to get vaccinated.
This comes after the state included professional athletes in its vaccination mandate that requires about 1.25 million "authorized workers" to be fully vaccinated by the end of November.
Daily Coronavirus infections rose to more than 1,000 daily in Melbourne, Victoria.
According to the Victorian government, unvaccinated players will almost certainly be forced to quarantine for 14 days upon their scheduled arrival.
About 60% of tennis players have been fully vaccinated, according to data gathered from the earlier US Open championship.
