Djokovic will start his 2023 campaign in Adelaide as he trains for a 10th Australian Open title.

The 21-time major champion has been granted a visa by the Australian administration and is listed to recreate at the Adelaide International, which starts Sunday.

The governing body established that the 35-year-old Serb arrived in Adelaide on Tuesday night.

Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley stated at a news conference that Djokovic had arrived on Tuesday.

“Novak is welcome in Australia,” Tiley stated. “As we speak, he is landing in Adelaide and will be the player to beat again.” The Australian Open runs starting from Jan. 16-29 in Melbourne.

Djokovic missed the Grand Slam last year as he refused to be vaccinated against Covid-19. Australia has since it is releasing strict rules for unvaccinated tourists.

Immigration Minister Andrew Giles stated in the previous month confirmed that Djokovic, who had been meeting a possible three-year ban following being deported, was granted a permit.

Questions remain regarding how Djokovic will be received by Australian fans this year. Tiley told reporters Tuesday he believed Djokovic would be well-received.

“I have great faith in the Australian public,” Tiley stated. “We’re a very well-educated sporting public, especially those who come to the tennis. They love their tennis; they love seeing excellence; they love seeing great athleticism and ideal matches.

“And I have a lot of faith that the fans will react such as we hope they would react and is respecting for that.”
