Novak Djokovic: Why were tennis stars denied entry to Australia? What will happen next?
Novak Djokovic has appealed to the Australian Circuit’s decision to refuse a visa prior to the Australian Open. The Australian government tried to delay the trial by 48 hours, but Judge Anthony Kelly’s court order stated that the trial was “biasedly rejected” and that the case would be heard on Monday at 10 am.
The case focused on whether the Australian Government and border forces made a mistake in handling Djokovic’s visa and their decision to revoke it. Serbs claimed to meet the medical exemption requirements because they were infected with Covid-19 in December. After a long testimony, Judge Kelly moved to abandon the original decision and ordered the 34-year-old boy to be immediately released from detention.
Djokovic has been detained at a quarantine hotel in Melbourne since Thursday, but is allowed to leave to see these procedures elsewhere with the legal team and is allowed to enter Australia. Follow all the latest news and reactions from Djokovic’s hearing below.
Why Djokovic won his proceeding
As expected, his experience at Djokovic’s airport upon arrival in Australia was key to his case.
Judge Kelly does not give Djokovic enough time to respond after informing him of their intention not to give Djokovic the best visa in the world that he cannot contact his or legal agents. I decided that it was.
The government has admitted to ending their proceedings.
Djokovic is free to enter Australia until further intervention from the authorities. The Australian Open is a week away.

Tennis players should be vaccinated
Former tennis star Roger Taylor said he believes that athletes traveling around the world should be vaccinated.
A court document provided at the hearing confirmed that Djokovic was not vaccinated with the Covid vaccine, so he relied on having the virus to invade Australia. Djokovic won the appeal early today with treatment at the Melbourne airport.
“Everything is technical and a mistake made by border forces,” he told Sky. “The decision on whether he should play with or without vaccination is not clear. As far as I am concerned, I believe in vaccination. I am vaccinated. I play tennis all over the world. I think anyone traveling in Japan needs to be vaccinated. “
