AUSTRALIAN OPENS: The Australian government confirmed Novak Djokovic had been granted a visa to attend the Australian Open in January a year after his deportation over his stance against the COVID-19 vaccination.

The 21-time Grand Slam singles champion had his visa revoked on January 14 on grounds of public interest and lost an appeal against deportation in the Supreme Court.

Immigration Secretary Andrew Giles said he had approved Djokovic’s request to have the annulment decision revoked as the reason for the visa annulment no longer existed. The visa ban could have lasted three years.

Ansu Fati will start in Spain’s last warm-up before the World Cup on Thursday, with Alvaro Morata, Hugo Guillamon and Marcos Llorente not playing this week due to lack of practice time.

Coach Luis Enrique said he hopes Fati can play the full 90 minutes of the game against Jordan before the trip to Qatar.

“I would ask you not to refer to Ansu as an injured player,” said Luis Enrique. “I see him in better shape than in June when he couldn’t be with us.”
