Djokovic has always been a bit of a c*ntrarian. Despite his hugely successful career he has never had the same love or affection as either Federer or Nadal and he has thrived on being cast into that role. He is not doing anything out of character here.

I'm not au fait with the whole Visa case since I am just completely weary of the whole Covid thing and tend to switch off on such matters. But if he wasn't a superstar tennis player he would not have got into Australia, that much is obvious.

Fixed that for ye

I'm sure your an angel  ::)

Completely politically motivated. Could have done it yesterday but waited to the close of business to make things more difficult for him. Anyone with an ounce of fairness against institutional abuse should be concerned.

Djokovic lost his last ditch appeal and is set to be deported. Renown immigration rights campaigner Nigel Farage will be gutted.

Political theatre. Djokovic got played.
No sympathy for him. Ordinary people in Oz made a lot of sacrifices including not being able to sit with dying relatives.
Get vaccinated.

Was thinking the same regarding the next Australian Open(s), if he doesn't go it will devalue the competition.

They’ve managed the pandemic better than anyone. Very few deaths and society almost completely open over the whole period.

When we were in lockdown last year NZ and Australia enjoyed full crowds at their rugby games and other sporting events. Restaurants and bars were open also. They’ve been strict about people getting in but that’s sensible.
