Novak Djokovic’s name appears on master’s series calendar.

Novak Djokovic’s name has appeared in the draw for the first Masters Series event of the year in Indian Wells.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion said in an interview last month that he had not received a Covid vaccination, but reports said that it is obligatory for any non-US citizen wishing to enter the country.
Djokovic did not take his name off the entry list before Tuesday’s draw, and tournament organisers admit they have not yet been able to find out whether he has a workable route into the US.
It would be recalled that Djokovic was deported from Australia in January, after the Australian government cancelled his visa in a row over his vaccine status.
