Djokovic launches court appeal over second deportation order – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Novak Djokovic’s lawyers are appealing to a federal court in Australia, to try to overturn a Government decision, to cancel his visa for a second time over covid rules.

If they fail, the world number 1, who isn’t vaccinated is due to be detained tomorrow and deported.

His career is over unless he get vaxxed. I'm sure Australia won't be the last country to deny him entry.

I would like this man to remember the thousands of fans who adored him and have died in the last two years and will never be able to see him again, out of respect for them. I know that he is not to blame, nor is anyone else, but if he could play the Australian open and win it, it would be nice if he dedicated his victory to them

Anteneo De Vera January 15, 2022 - 6:07 AM

The best thing is, send his back in Serbia. He doesn't want to follow Austrialian government rules, and not Vaccinated?"DEPORT HIM PERIOD ".

Immigration Minister Alex Hawke concedes the unvaccinated Djokovic entered Australia with a VALID medical exemption and poses a low risk of contracting the virus while in the country and passing it on to others.

But now, they argue the tennis star could spread dissent.

Eric Sanchez January 15, 2022 - 6:08 AM

Stockholm syndrome-like, you don’t realize you shouldn’t have allowed that abuse by your government – so you’re bitter at Novak for ‘unfairness’ but that’s not the most important issue.

Vivian Oosthuizen January 15, 2022 - 6:08 AM

Pissing of the unvaccinated has now become a thing amongst the Davos build back better grown men acting like boys in school yard. Where’s the days that adults did and said adult things and men were men not boys power.

He is getting more action on the "court" than on a tennis court 🎾😂

Novack is just a notorious and controversial LIAR… himself now involved in political and diplomatical ………
He just a baby that does not want to be a toddler :)

Ken Arthur January 15, 2022 - 6:10 AM

Novaxx should be deported for 3 years. He lied and put young kids at risk after he knew he tested positive.

Top One January 15, 2022 - 6:10 AM

He should of been on the first flight out of Australia, just like a normal person trying to break the law – so simple

Tyriece Williams January 15, 2022 - 6:10 AM

The fact people agree with following these rules and letting your government control you for over 2 years just goes to show how easily manipulated you are

Clark Kent January 15, 2022 - 6:10 AM

Just let the world number 1 play his tennis. We had enough of this mass hysteria already

vjekoslav prpic January 15, 2022 - 6:11 AM

Goverment admit that Novak entered Australia legaly,instead to stop any further disscusion,they continue to make fool of themselves.Now they are saying,MAYBE he will have bad influence,ok so maybe Australian PM will kill some1 in future,shell we send him to prison for MAYBE?As i recall,Novak was in Australia last year and followed all the rules,so how come now can he be MAYBE risk and not last year.

ABBY Zahab January 15, 2022 - 6:11 AM

Perfectly fit human deprived on self choice. So much for democratic rights whilst all other facets within society is killing us

A.D Singh January 15, 2022 - 6:12 AM

He’s frustrated because he’s losing games. He’s also frustrated because he knows he can not take enhancing drugs any longer. So he’s gonna get caught like Armstrong. He’s going down

Abdi Ali January 15, 2022 - 6:12 AM

Bala Nadash January 15, 2022 - 6:13 AM

Can I play for him officially I vaccinated even booster dose. ( lol )

Austin P January 15, 2022 - 6:14 AM

This Novak on & off the court is totally bad, smashing racket hard on games, not vaccinated (unclear secret) & yes he want us to bow on his own rule. You should be ashamed to look on every Ausies eyes, as they suffers a lot of their strict lockdowns. Go have your Daddy cuddles you, moron!

Bala Nadash January 15, 2022 - 6:14 AM

Tennis organization paying for court expenses or Australian public tax ?

E J January 15, 2022 - 6:15 AM

Most Australians didn’t choose to make those Sacrifices they were threaten with jail time, lost of Jobs and arrest if they didt.
So now the government gives a rat about the health and good order of its people after two years, funny because their is a election coming up

Tennis coach Filip Serdarusic says Novak saga got him deported

A Croatian tennis coach with the exact same medical exemption as Novak Djokovic entered Australia easily.

“The thing is, nobody can get politically stronger using my name, but Djokovic is such a high-profile player – that is why all of this is happening”.

Natasha Israil January 15, 2022 - 6:16 AM

annoyed aussie January 15, 2022 - 6:18 AM

Australia less than 10% of the covid 19 deaths in Serbia on a per capita basis. Maybe it has something to do with our approach and one current approach is all non citizen entry to the country must be vaccinated, hospitals already struggling, we don't need to fill them up with unvaccinated foreigner. One rule for all.

Michael Simons January 15, 2022 - 6:18 AM

Good luck Novak, hope you win!

Rollo Tomasi January 15, 2022 - 6:20 AM

So, politician overrules court verdict, democracy at it's finest 😂😂😂

Scepko Miroslav January 15, 2022 - 6:22 AM

Novak has the biggest following as single person on social media and worldwide as he may single handedly give them final blow and expose this scam pandemic with all blind sheepllets worldwide. Eventually truth will prevails and all false players and sympathizers will be exposed and send to Guantanamo bay.
