World No. 1 Novak Djokovic will miss the first grand slam of 2022 after the Australian Immigration Minister canceled his visa.

Djokovic is currently in the Australian Open draw set to face countryman Miomir Kecmanovic in the first round but the cancelation of his visa casts further doubt over his participation in the tournament.

The Tennis player previously won his court appeal against the cancelation but the Australian government said it would continue to look for ways to deport him.

According to the statement from the immigration office, it seems they found one. The statement states, "Today I exercised my power under section 133C(3) of the Migration Act to cancel the visa held by Mr. Novak Djokovic on health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so".

The current highest titleholder will not return to Melbourne Park.
