But Djokovic could still miss the upcoming Australian Open, with less than a week to go until the first Grand Slam tournament of the year kicks off, as the federal government has revealed they are investigating whether the 34-year-old lied on his Australian Travel Declaration form.
Sources confirmed the government were looking into a discrepancy on the form, on which Djokovic said he had not travelled in the 14 days prior to arriving in Australia on January 6.
However, the world No 1 had travelled from his home of Serbia to Spain in this period, spending Christmas at home and being seen in Cadiz, Spain on December 31.
On the form, all travellers are asked whether they have “travelled or will travel in the 14 days prior to your flight to Australia”, and are warned that “giving false or misleading information is a serious offence. You may also be liable to a civil penalty for giving false or misleading information”, with a maximum penalty of 12 months imprisonment.
