The Aussies and kiwis have lost the plot , he should never go back there again.

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

Not his choice I thought. Banned from Oz for 3 years is he not.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/tennis/2022/01/17/novak-djokovics-french-open-doubt-sports-minister-u-turns-vaccine/

Novak Djokovic’s prospects of landing a 21st major title suffered another blow on Sunday night, when the French sports minister announced that vaccine passes would be required for visiting athletes at upcoming events.

If this position remains in force until May’s French Open, then Djokovic could find himself missing a second major because of his refusal to be vaccinated. Unless, of course, he climbs down from his position and accepts the jab.

Nadal normally wins the French so it won't matter too much, if he's too principled on taking the vaccine then I can't see him taking it for the French, otherwise he'd have taken it already for the Aussie's..

But who knows where this virus will be in May, so he may not have to worry about that
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

'the 47th best tennis player in the world who is vaccinated but has covid is in Australia, meanwhile the number one player in the world who is unvaccinated, has natural antibodies and has tested covid free has to leave'

Where did he get these antibodies when there's even doubts about his alleged testing positive on the 16th of December and felt that he could do press, fly to Spain and do presentations to young tennis players?

He's spun a web of lies and has been entangled in them.

He's probably had Covid before, but to have it in time suddenly In December, to gain entry to Australia sounds like bullshit.

Interestingly it seems from the Judgement that his visa was infact granted in November. There’s no discussion as to how that came to be mind.
