News about Novak Djokovic LIVE: Latest when Australia revoked visa again


Martina Navratilova tells Djokovic to “suck” and “go home”

Novak Djokovic he had his own Australian visa revoked by State Immigration Minister Alex Hawk and faces deportation from the country just three days before the start of the Australian Open. Hawke issued a statement saying it was in the “public interest” to revoke Djokovic’s visa. “Today, I exercised my authorization under section 133C (3) of the Migration Act to revoke Mr Novak Djokovic’s visa for health and good order,” he said.

This is the second time that Djokovic and his lawyers have been deprived of their visas challenged the decision in court, saying Hawk’s verdict was “clearly irrational”. The first decision was received this week by the Federal District and Family Court, and the judge overturned it for reasons of procedural fairness. Djokovic was released from the custody of the border forces and started training in Melbourne before the tournament as he chases men’s record 21st Grand Slam titles individually.

However, pressure has been rising all week after breaking silence on Wednesday over a number of allegations of violating the Covid protocol, and admitted that he broke the isolation and conducted an interview with the French newspaper L’Equipe, even though he knew he was positive for the virus, such an offense could cause up to five years in prison if proven to have lied about a positive test.

Follow all the latest news below as Djokovic fights deportation once again.

Murray refuses to “kick Djokovic when he’s down”

Andy Murray had a successful day in Australia as he reached the ATP finals after fighting Reilly Opelka.

After the match, Murray was asked about Djokovic’s resignation and said: “The situation is not good. I’m not going to sit here and start kicking Novak when he’s on the floor. I mean, I said the day before, it’s not a good situation for anyone.

“It’s a pity he found himself in such a situation, and who knows? I don’t know what the procedure is now. I don’t know which way to go down if he can complain about it and how long it takes, and is he still in training while this process is going on, or is he still competing in a tournament?

“Obviously I want this resolved. I think it could be good for everyone if that were the case. It just seems to be dragging on for a long time and it’s not great for tennis, not for the Australian Open, not for Novak.

“Obviously, a lot of people here have criticized the government. It wasn’t good. “
