Officials said the world tennis No. 1, who is unvaccinated for COVID-19, may pose a risk to the community. The cancellation means Djokovic would be barred from a new Australian visa for three years, except under certain circumstances. Djokovic, the Australian Open defending champion, was included in the draw on Thursday as top seed and was due to face fellow Serb Miomir Kecmanovic for his opening match, probably on Monday or Tuesday.
