Novak Djokovic will not want to miss the chance to win a record 21st Grand Slam title at the Australian Open, says tournament director Craig Tiley on Thursday.

Unvaccinated players will not be allowed to compete at the 2022 event and defending champion Djokovic, 34, has declined to disclose his status, reports BBC Sport.

The Serb is level on 20 Grand Slam wins with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

"One of them will surpass the others. I don't think Novak would want to leave that to someone else," said Tiley.

"Novak has won nine Australian Opens, I'm sure he wants to get to 10."
