Djokovic, who has won the Australian Open on nine occasions, was denied the opportunity to defend the title he claimed last year after a federal court dismissed his effort to stay in the country to play at the tournament.

Reports have since surfaced that Djokovic was planning to sue Tennis Australia, but Tiley denied that was the case in an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation on Sunday.

Tiley also believes Djokovic will return to Australia despite the possibility the Serb could face a three-year ban from travelling into the country as a result of his deportation.

Tiley blamed miscommunication with the federal government for the issues that resulted in Djokovic being kicked out of Australia.
