Djokovic received disappointing news this weekend. He thought he would play in the Australian Open but was unlucky this time around. The judge overturned his appeal to play in the Australian Open due to being unvaccinated. This was as s result of the public interest and safety.
Djokovic Unvaccinated Status Forced Him To Be Deported
According to previous reports Novak Djokovic faced plenty of backlash after he made public appearances while knowing the outcome of his positive coronavirus test. The tennis player posted images with children without wearing a mask.
In a press conference a few weeks ago, his family thanked Djokovic’s supporters throughout his court process. He was previously exempted from taking the vaccine. At the time, Djokovic could potentially play in the Australian Open. Right now Djokovic’s court case was not successful but he “respects” 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, which means I cannot stay in Australia and participate in the Australian Open,”Novak Djokovic
Novak Uncomfortable With All The Attention
So, Australia’s number one tennis player will not be able to participate in the Australian Open this time. This is no doubt disappointing news to him and his fans alike. Whether his fans will protest on this one is a slight possibility.
According to ESPN, Novak was very uncomfortable with all the attention on him preceding the Australian Open. Novak could potentially appeal to the high court but not in time for him to participate in the Australian Open.
