Novak Djokovic given fresh Australian Open hope despite ban looming – 'Rules are wrong'

“We should change the rules. Those rules are wrong,” he told Channel Nine’s Today Show.

The backbencher insisted it wasn’t a rule specifically for Djokovic, instead for anyone who had tested positive in the past, though the world No 1 would benefit from such an exception.

He added: “I’m not saying it should be a rule for Novak, it should be a rule for everybody. If you’ve had Covid and have natural immunity, you’re better off.”

Though Canavan’s comments could give Djokovic hope of competing in his most successful Major tournament and getting the chance to win a record 21st Grand Slam title, the Victorian Australian Medical Association President also explained why the vaccine was valued above natural antibodies, which have previously been said to wear off after around six months.
