Journalist criticizes the Australian Open for disrespecting Novak Djokovic.
Novak Djokovic confirmed that he will play in the Australian Open after Australian authorities granted him a medical exemption.
However, Ben Rothenberg, a prominent tennis journalist, showed his annoyance towards the Australian Open authorities for disrespecting world number one.
According to Ben’s tweet, Djokovic was notoriously exempt from promotional images at the Australian Open.
He thought it was a form of disrespect and disloyalty on the part of the officials at Melbourne Park not to show a photo of their defending champion.
In the penultimate hour, Novak Djokovic confirmed that he will fly to the ground below. As he will try to defend his title for the fourth time in a row and become the only male player in history to win 21 Grand Slams and win the Australian Open for the tenth time in his career.
With all the close-knit history between Djokovic and the Australian Open, one might expect Melbourne Park officials to show some gratitude towards world number one.
However, they decided to go in the opposite direction and disrespected world number one by not putting any photos of him in the promotional images.
One might think that until the last moment Djokovic was not going to come to the Australian Open.
But recent reports suggest that Australian Open officials knew long before that the world’s number one will participate in Melbourne Park.
However, thanks to prominent tennis journalist Ben Rothenberg for informing fans about Novak Djokovic’s exemption from all promotional images across the field.
