Tsitsipas directly questioned Djokovic's decision to land in Australia without getting vaccinated which is against the rules set by the government.

The World Number 4 said, "Not having to follow the protocols that they gave me, which, it takes a lot of daring to do I think, and putting a Grand Slam kind of at risk".

The 2021 French Open finalist in fact questioned why the Australian Government or Tennis Australia is ready to make exceptions for a tennis player when the rest are following the mandate. He said, "It kind of seems like not everyone is playing by the rules of how Tennis Australia or some governments have been putting things, and each single one of, a very small majority, of that percentage, choose to follow their own way, which, kind of makes the rest, the majority, look like, I don't know, like they're all fools or something".

The Australian Open has named Novak Djokovic as the top seed in the Men's singles draw despite still waiting for the official word on his deportation from the government.
