Novak Djokovic wins Australian deportation court

On January 10, Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic won the Australian deportation appeal.

A judge in the Australian Federal Court reinstated the athlete's visa and ordered him to be released from quarantine at the hotel within 30 minutes.

Thus, the court rejected the decision of the border service, which had previously recognized Djokovic's documents as such that they did not meet the necessary criteria.

The hearing began in Melbourne on January 10 at 10:00 am local time. Prior to that, Djokovic spent four nights at the hotel.

Tennis Australia's lawyers have sued a letter from Tennis Australia's chief physician, dated December 30, stating that Djokovic has a medical certificate of exemption from coronavirus vaccination, since he had recently been ill.

The scandal over the participation of Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open without coronavirus vaccinations rose in early January.

The Australians reacted negatively to the fact that the athlete plans to take part in the championship with an exemption from vaccination.

Serbia was outraged by the ban on the entry of its athlete. Local media called this attitude towards the tennis star a brutal and dirty political game.

The Australian Open Tennis Championships kicks off in Melbourne a week later, on January 17th.
