Australian Open 2022: Novak Djokovic Possible Deportation

The Australian government apparently wanted to gain time in the dispute over the entry of the tennis star. The procedure is now to be continued on Monday as planned.

One day before the expected court decision on the possible deportation of tennis star Novak Djokovic from Australia, the magistrate a request from the local government to postpone rejected.

The procedure is to continue as planned on Monday morning. The government wanted to postpone the hearing to Wednesday. Should Djokovic be allowed to stay in Australia, he would start as defending champion at the Australian Open. The tournament starts on January 17th.

Novak Djokovic Allegedly Contracted Covid-19 In December

Djokovic was refused entry after landing in Melbourne on Wednesday evening. Since then he has been stuck in a deportation hotel. According to his own information, he had received a medical exemption from the organizers of the Australian Open for an entry, which the border officials did not recognize.

In the dispute over the entry permit, Djokovic's lawyers are now apparently relying on a positive corona test from mid-December. The world number one is said to have tested positive for the corona virus for the second time on December 16, 2021. 

Novak Djokovic's Family Calls For Protests

This emerges from documents that the Serb's lawyers presented to the Melbourne court. If the facts are confirmed, Djokovic may have had the right to travel to Australia in early January.

Several inconsistencies

In this case there are still numerous inconsistencies. Why didn't Djokovic make it public earlier that he was infected with Corona for the second time? When he tested positive for the first time in June 2020, he had made the result public himself. Not this time. In addition, photos of Djokovic at a public appearance on December 16 sparked discussions. Masks are not worn in the photos.

A Big Point

In addition, photos are circulating on social media that apparently show him without a mask with teenagers and children the day after the appearance. However, it is unclear whether Djokovic already knew about his positive corona test at this point in time.

The 34-year-old has been keeping a secret about his vaccination status for months. However, he has repeatedly expressed himself critical of corona vaccinations and in the case of a vaccination would not have required a special permit to enter Australia.
