Today Australia has cancelled the visa of Novak Djokovic again.
“Today I exercised my power… to cancel the visa held by Mr Novak Djokovic on health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so,” Immigration Minister Alex Hawke said in a statement.
Novak now has the right to appeal, but it isn’t clear if he will do so and if he will be able to play the Australian Open in the meantime.
Deportation means that Novak won’t be able to return to Australia for 3 years (thus missing even more Grand Slams for a while to come).
I must admit that at Grand Slams its always good to have the best players in the world there. However, he has lied on entering the country on several occasions and then thrown his own agent under the bus and blamed it on him. He must leave!
It will be interesting to see if he faces any repercussions in Serbia – as he admitted to breaking isolation laws.
