The Novak Djokovic case and his possible withdrawal from the Australian Open is still open because again the authorities of this country canceled the Serbian’s visa for the second time, so the participation of the world’s number one is in doubt in the first Grand Slam of the year which starts this January 17th.

The ocean nation’s immigration minister, Alex Hawke, has found enough evidence to proceed with the deportation of the 20-time major tournament winner. “The visa is withdrawn for reasons of health and public order,” reads the statement published by this office, given the lack of vaccination of the tennis player.

The television series between the athlete and the Australian state began a week ago when he entered the country with a medical exemption given by the organization of the event because he had had a Covid-19 contagion on December 16, but he attended events and interviews without respect his quarantine, something he later described as “human error.”

In the midst of all this, Djokovic’s defense appealed the decision again as it did in the first instance. The hearing is conducted by Judge Anthony Kelly, who had reversed the government decision of the first cancellation of his visa. At the moment, the hearing is suspended.

According to the first information, Djokovic will remain detained until there is a final decision while his lawyers ask for speed in the resolution before the urgency of the start of the tournament this Monday.
