Novak Djokovic tried to secure a medical exemption for the Australian Open but according to reports coming from down under, he has been denied one.
The Novak Djokovic Australian Open saga continues with recent reports suggesting that he has been denied a medical exemption. News about Djokovic trying to secure one leaked two days ago when Serbian media reported that Tennis Australia was trying to secure one for Djokovic. The reason for that was simple, the event will take a hit without Djokovic attending as he seems unwilling to get vaccinated.

It seems like Djokovic was aiming for the 2nd one with Serbian media reporting that he is likely to get one. However, reports from down under are now suggesting he has been denied one
