Novak Djokovic of Serbia reached to the quarter-finals of the Adelaide International with a difficult win against Quentin Halys on Thursday.

The Serb defeated the Frenchman 7-6 (7-3) 7-6 after falling behind 5-2 and 5-3 in the first and second sets, respectively (7-5).

Djokovic will practice for the Australian Open on Friday by playing Canadian Denis Shapovalov.

Australia’s Nick Kyrgios withdrew from the second week of the Adelaide event owing to an ankle injury.

The 27-year-old will have participated in fewer matches going into the Australian Open, which starts on January 16, after he withdrew from the United Cup last week as well.

Djokovic, who defeated Kyrgios in the 2022 Wimbledon final, will be trying for his 10th Australian Open title, matching Rafael Nadal’s overall men’s Grand Slam record of 22.

Because the US has extended the requirement for international visitors to be immunized against Covid-19, the former world number one will miss this season’s Indian Wells and Miami Opens.

When asked about the potential of missing more competitions, Djokovic answered, “it is what it is.” Djokovic was deported before of the 2022 Australian Open owing of his Covid-19 immunization status.

Djokovic’s quarter-final opponent, seventh seed Shapovalov, won 6-4 6-3 over Russian Roman Safiullin in Thursday’s second-round Adelaide International match.

It is important to note that Djokovic was deported approximately a year ago for entering the country without the necessary papers for his Covid-19 immunisation at a time when there were still strict quarantine regulations in force.

Following Djokovic’s expulsion in November, the Australian government overturned the three-year ban and granted him a visa so he could attend the Australian Open.
