Djokovic could become the tennis player with the most Grand Slam victories, but could be carried away before that time due to a lack of vaccination.

Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic was detained in Australia on Friday (14/01 Brasilia time), hours after his visa was revoked for the second time due to the lack of a vaccine against the Corona virus.

Lawyers for the 34-year-old, the world’s number one tennis player, have called on the court to try to overturn what they called the “irrational” ruling.

A hearing on his situation is scheduled for Sunday in Australia, and still Saturday in Brazil (19:30 GMT).

The day after was set for his Australian Open debut, a tournament he won on nine occasions. If he can compete and win this year, Djokovic could become the most successful men’s tennis player in history, with 21 Grand Slam titles (Australian Open, Roland Garros, Wimbledon and US Open).
