Apart from the Australian Open, which ranked second among top searches in Australia and among the Top 5 in a number of other countries, tennis events were not as frequently featured as usual.
The findings reveal a significant amount of interest in the controversy surrounding Djokovic’s denial of a coronavirus vaccination prior to being granted a medical exemption to enter Australia as well as in well-known retirements like those of Williams, Federer, and Barty.
Google only made some data available. A number of nations, including France, Serbia, Croatia, China, and Russia, did not provide their search rankings.
