Canberra: Tennis world No. 1 Novak Djokovic was included in the Australian Open official draw on Thursday, although uncertainty remained about whether the government will cancel the top seed's visa for a second time.

Immigration Minister Alex Hawke is weighing for exercising his discretionary powers to revoke the Djokovic's visa over concerns about the superstar's medical exemption from Australia's COVID-19 vaccination requirements.
