This year too it was unsure whether he would be allowed to enter the country. This decision by the US government however comes as a relief to the World No.1. Djokovic is now likely to not miss any Grand Slam tournaments this year.
Earlier this month, during the Australian Open, Djokovic had expressed his desire to play in the US soon, ““I hope I can play in Indian Wells. That is my wish.
