The plot thickens. Apparently re-arrested.

No, inaccurate

Immigration minister still deciding on whether to abuse their power once more

The government, rightly or wrongly depending on your view are looking pretty poor at this stage, I've said many times I'm for taking the vaccine and boosters for my own reasons and to date I've had no issues, as a family we've all been grand, whether that's luck or because of the vaccines I don't know.

 Novak has strongly been against vaccines and has caught it twice, he should abide by the rules of the country that he's in, if the only way he can enter a country is by having a vaccine then its a no brainer. either he plays with the vaccine or he doesn't play the tournament .

But if there was a rule on exemptions due to having caught the virus within a period then the Aussie government will have to let him play, if its down to a high profile person being made an example of then its an own goal.

If his lawyers have evidence of him following the correct procedures or examples of other people getting in under exemptions then this will become a total mess.

At this stage he'll have not had enough practice in or be in the right frame of mind to compete in this tournament anyways, maybe thats why they have prolonged this

Why delay the inevitable? He won't be deported and the immigration minister is just digging a bigger hole for himself.

Let him play. It will be a small victory for him and the antivax lads will be all over it.

At this stage though his reputation is in tatters. It looks pretty clear from the social media pics found over the weekend that the PCR results are forged (I suspect the Aussies think that but canít prove it) but the big one for me is aligning himself with that provo Farage.

I'm led to believe that there's a few discrepancies in Novaks stories in relation to when he had tested positive for Covid in the past with one of the dates he gave as being just over a month ago he's showing pictures on his social media of him at some underage tennis event somewhere or other.

Those dates might still tally, but for him to be knowingly positive and also out and about with kids isn't a good look.

Interesting to see some of the support he's getting on his is from Brexiteers very much into controlling borders yet when the Aussies are doing it it's infringing on someone's freedom..

Ultimately we all know there's politics at play here as well.

Tatters? That's a bit extreme?  If he was in breach of his countries covid rules he should be pulled for it in his own country, probably dealt with the way Boris tea parties were dealt with. What's happening in Australia is completely different.

BTW I couldn't care less if he plays or never plays again but when politics gets involved it makes it a bit suspect

Unvaccinated but with a medical exemption, being that he had Covid in late December (and didn't do 14 day quarantine in Serbia). How can covid justify a medical exemption?

Not only did he not isolate, he posed maskless with dozens of children the next day!

Its like when you can either show proof of a positive covid infection within the last 6 months, or vaccine passport showing you have had at least 2 jabs within a period.

If having a vaccine stops you getting covid again then no problems, but it doesnt, it helps to reduce your hospitalization, not giving someone else the virus, proof of a positive test shows that there is some immunity within a time period also, so its (like the vaccine) reducing your chances of being hospitalized?

I don't know anymore, I've lost count of what pathway is right

For me it doesnít matter what the topic here is. Australia has rules - is he within them or not? If not no entry but if Australia are making mistakes or playing silly buggers then he should be allowed in.
