Australian Open organizers delayed the draw ceremony Thursday afternoon "until further notice" without giving a reason, according to reports.

The sport's No. 1 male player had his visa revoked earlier this month because officials said he didn’t qualify for an exemption to the rule that all visitors to the country must be vaccinated against the coronavirus.
