In making this decision, I have carefully considered the information provided by the Department of Home Affairs, the Australian Border Force and Mr Djokovic personally.
Prime Minister Morrison’s government is committed to continuing to firmly protect Australia’s borders, especially in relation to the Covid-19 epidemic.

Meanwhile, 2013 Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli also defended Djokovic, but the former French player said that sooner or later, Nole will still have to get a Covid-19 vaccine.

This time to Australia, he got his visa, they flew in with all the best preparation and did all the work he should have done before to give all the paperwork and get it all. exemptions. I think that’s the whole point of Judge Anthony Kelly, he couldn’t have done anything better than he did.”
After Djokovic was detained at a hotel, his rival Rafael Nadal suggested that all trouble could have been avoided had Nole decided to get vaccinated. Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic told the BBC they were on Djokovic’s side but the Serbian authorities strongly advised everyone to get vaccinated.
