Novak Djokovic Has Been Deported, He’s On An Emirates Flight To Dubai
Following the decision by the Federal Court which did not rule to re-instate Novak Djokovic’s visa, the world No. 1 has already boarded a 14-hour Emirates flight from Melbourne to Dubai and is headed perhaps back to Belgrade. He left Melbourne at 10:39pm, almost five hours after the Court ruled.
After losing his appeal, the Serb will now await the Court’s decision on whether he will be banned from Australia for up to three years, as law mandates.
Djokovic said after the decision, “I am extremely disappointed with the Court ruling to dismiss my application for judicial review of the Minister’s decision to cancel my visa.”
Djokovic’s next event could be in either Doha in mid February or in Dubai at the end of February. Otherwise, it’s unclear if he’ll be allowed into the U.S. for either Indian Wells or Miami due to his vaccination status.
