Novak Djokovic appeals decision to revoke Australian visa

On Sunday, the Australian Court of Appeal will hear arguments in the case of the annulment of the visa of Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic.

Earlier, Immigration Minister Alex Hawke decided to cancel Djokovic's visa. Now the number one racket in the world of men's tennis is facing deportation from Australia and a ban on entry for three years.

Djokovic arrived in the country to play at the Australian Open tennis (Australian Open), which kicks off on Monday.

Recall that Djokovic's visa was canceled for the first time immediately after his arrival in Melbourne on January 6 . Then the border guards said that the tennis player did not provide evidence to obtain a medical exemption from vaccination. However, the court later reversed this decision.

And the Australians themselves, who lived for quite a long time under strict quarantine restrictions, were outraged that the tennis player was allowed to enter Australia, despite the fact that he had no vaccinations.

Djokovic is expected to remain at the immigration center until the end of the trial.
