Emma Raducanu will face former US Open Champion Sloane Stephens in the first round of the Australian Open as questions persist around the participation of nine-time champion Novak Djokovic, despite him being drawn against Miomir Kecmanovic.

The saga surrounding Djokovic remains the overriding story of this year’s – and perhaps any – Australian Open.

On Wednesday he admitted an error in judgement by breaking isolation rules prior to the tournament but hit out at "continuing misinformation" surrounding his Covid status.And on Thursday the draw was set to start at 04:00 UK time but was “cancelled until further notice” as speculation mounted that Djokovic’s participation in the tournament could be in doubt.

It had been reported that immigration minister Alex Hawke could again revoke the Serbian’s visa.(Eurosport)
