Let us tell you that Djokovic's visa was cancelled after he arrived at Melbourne airport last week. Australia's border officials have said that they do not meet the eligibility for exemption from the requirement of full vaccination against COVID-19 for all non-citizens upon entry into the country. However, this Serbian tennis star receives a great deal of support from his followers. Djokovic's attorneys have submitted a court plea to stop his deportation from Australia, claiming that the Serbian player was confirmed to be COVID-19 positive last month and has since recovered. He requested for a medical exemption from Australia's strict immunisation laws based on this.

Australian Open is to be played from January 17

According to Australian media reports on Sunday, the federal government's demand for additional time to prepare the case against Djokovic has been rejected. The petition was filed by Interior Minister Karen Andrew over the weekend, urging the hearing to be adjourned for two days. The Australian Open is to be played from January 17. The judge of Federer Circuit Court, Anthony Kelly rejected the application and the case would be heard on Monday as planned.
