When is Novak Djokovic’s next match, how to watch on TV and our prediction?

Novak Djokovic is poised to play his first match of the year in Dubai after a chaotic start to his 2022 season.

Last month, the Serbian was deported from Australia after a court battle with immigration authorities as he attempted to play at the Australian Open with a medical exemption on the grounds that he had recently contracted Covid.

The case stoked global debate and Australian Immigration Minister Alex Hawke said Djokovic could be a threat to public order in the country because his presence would encourage anti-vaccination sentiment.

On Tuesday, Djokovic broke his silence to say he is prepared to miss the French Open and Wimbledon rather than have a vaccination. Telegraph Sport understands Djokovic is now the only member of the men’s top 100 not to have been vaccinated.
