The draw for the Australian Open was postponed on Thursday amid the ongoing uncertainty surrounding Novak Djokovic’s participation.

The world No.1’s involvement hangs in the balance amid reports that immigration minister Alex Hawke is building a case to deport the 34-year-old, less than a week after he won an appeal to have his visa reinstated.

Djokovic, who stepped up his preparations ahead of bid to win a record 21st grand slam title by practicing on Rod Laver Arena earlier on Thursday, was expected to learn his first round at 3.00pm local time.

The draw, however, was postponed at short notice with no details given as to when it was likely to take place.
