by Staff | January 10th, 2022, 11:09 am

Following his big win in court, Novak Djokovic hit the tennis courts for a practice session on Rod Laver Arena.

The world No. 1 has been cooped up in the refugee hotel since Thursday, and finally got some fresh air and a chance to get on the court on which he’s won nine Australian Open titles.

“I’m pleased and grateful that the Judge overturned my visa cancellation,” Djokovic posted. “Despite all that has happened, I want to stay and try to compete @AustralianOpen

“I remain focused on that. I flew here to play at one of the most important events we have in front of the amazing fans. 👇”

Djokovic could still face deportation if the Minister of Immigration so decides.

Graham Says:

So Novak’s father thinks that Novak has been treated worse than Jesus.
Says it all really.
Can’t remember Jesus disrespecting the masses or hitting a ball at a female line judge. Would Jesus have promoted no to vaccines if he knew that lives were at risk.
No shame.
Enjoy the warm Aussie welcome Mr Djokovic.

chico Says:

Why Graham?
The guy just wants to play. And you make arguments that a five year old can shoot down for making it even more unpleasant. Are all Australians liike this?

Ok, seven year old.

Graham Says:


This goes beyond just wanting to play tennis.
The fact that you don’t see this is exceptionally naive of you.
Let’s see what happens shall we.

Ok. First, what Djokovic senior says has by the end of the day nothing to do with jr.
Second. You claiming it to be ”disrespecting the masses” does not make it so any more than me saying that you are a crowd stirring manipulator you.
Third. Have you seen the video were Djokovic tosses the ball? Here i go with five year ole as to interpret intention. And what was Novaks reaction? Immediate acceptance.
And four. You might trust the vaccine, most might trust the vaccine but everybody does not and there is the problem. Everybody is basically forced to go with the majority. It is unnatural.

Eat well, sleep well, exercize, keep up a good spirit – take care of youre immune system. Actually Novák had a book written, have not read it but might even have a bigger influence against covid than a random overweight bloke having a shot of something that is payed by taxpayers and has been made by a company that has been SENTENCED to over a billion US $ for hiding research results that would speak AGAINST letting out a prescription drug on the market.

Naive, I might be but I like to think we can evolve to a more transparent, more fair and happy planet :). It just takes a little bit of work from everyone. And for you I would recommend to just cut a sportsman some slack ;). He can actually put together a show on a tennis court if you let him.
