There were no issues at passport control for Novak Djokovic this time. When the unvaccinated Serb landed in the United Arab Emirates on Wednesday before his return to competition at next week’s Dubai Championships, he was waved through and given a warm welcome, in stark contrast to his arrival in Australia last month.
A friendly reception also greeted him out and about in the city last night. Adoring fans chanted “Nole”, his nickname, as he walked into the Serbian national pavilion at the Expo 2020 exhibition for an event staged by his charity foundation.
