WATCH: Novak Djokovic snubbed in 2018 Australian Open promo

The official promo of the Australian Open 2018 is out.

And although it serves the main purpose of bolstering the excitement for the season-opening Grand Slam Down Under, the organziers have made some controversial calls conercing the featured players in the 30-second video.

The biggest name missing in the clip was perhaps of Novak Djokovic. The Serbian superstar has dropped out of top 10 in the ATP rankings due to an elbow injury that has seen him away from action since Wimbledon this year.

However, the fact that he’s won the Australian Open as many as six times, doesn’t justify his exclusion.

Among the other notable names to have missed out on a promo appearance include WTA No. 1 Simona Halep of Romania and No. 2 Garbine Muguruza of Spain.

Bizarrely enough, the lesser-fancied likes of Daria Gavrilova, Denis Istomin and Gael Monfils made the cut.
