Novak Djokovic latest news after visa cancelled three days before Australian Open


Martina Navratilova tells Djokovic to ‘suck it up’ and ‘go home’

Novak Djokovic has had his Australian visa cancelled by the country’s immigration minister, Alex Hawke, and faces deportation from the country just three days before the Australian Open begins. Hawke released a statement saying it was in the “public interest” to cancel Djokovic’s visa. “Today I exercised my power under section 133C(3) of the Migration Act to cancel the visa held by Mr Novak Djokovic on health and good order grounds," han sa.

This is the second time that Djokovic has had his visa revoked and his lawyers have challenged the decision in the court, saying Hawke’s ruling is “patently irrational”. The first decision went to the Federal Circuit and Family Court this week and was quashed by a judge on procedural fairness grounds. Djokovic was released from Border Force detention and began training in Melbourne ahead of the tournament as he chases a men’s record 21st Grand Slam singles title.

derimot, pressure has been building all week after he broke his silence over a number of accusations of breaking Covid protocol on Wednesday, and he conceded that he broke isolation and conducted an interview with French newspaper L’Equipe despite knowing that he was positive for the virus, such a transgression could result in up to five years in prison if proven that he lied about his positive test.

Murray doesn’t want to “kick Djokovic while he’s down

Andy Murray defeated Reilly Opelka 6-7 6-4 6-4 on Monday to reach the ATP final but in his press conference he was asked about Djokovic.

He re-iterated his point that the visa situation isn’t good for anyone.

“It’s not a good situation. I’m not going to sit here and start kicking Novak whilst he’s down,” Murray said. "Jeg mener, I said it the other day, it’s not a good situation for anyone.

“It’s unfortunate that it’s ended up in this sort of situation, og hvem vet? I don’t know what the process is from now. I don’t know what route he goes down, if he can appeal that and how long that takes, and can he still be out practising whilst that process is going on or still competing in the tournament?

“I just want it obviously to get resolved. I think it could be good for everyone if that was the case. It just seems like it’s dragged on for quite a long time now and it’s not great for tennis, not great for the Australian Open, not great for Novak.

“Obviously a lot of people have criticised the government here, også. It’s not been good.”

Djokovic to fight second visa cancellation

Djokovic’s visa was cancelled for a second time on Friday by immigration minister Alex Hawke.

Lawyers for the player will submit an injunction to stop him being deported Friday night and will attempt to conclude proceedings by Sunday. The Australian Open starts on Monday and Djokovic is due to play on the opening day.

The player will be detained over the weekend and so he will have just 24 hours to prepare if he is successful. If not he will be deported from Australia and possibly banned for three years.

What happened at the hearing?

The hearing seems to be concluded and a lot happened over the proceedings.

Djokovic’s lawyers accused the government of re-cancelling his visa as to not “excite” anti-vaccination groups. They also said that immigration minister Alex Hawke called Djokovic a man of “good standing” and that he conceded the player had an “exemption”.

While Djokovic is currently not detained he will be over the weekend as agreed by both parties. He will also attend an interview with immigration officials on Saturday morning at 8am AEDT.

Judge Kelly ruled the case will go to the Federal Court of Australia. Before proceedings conclude in that court the government cannot take any action to remove Djokovic from Australia.

There will be a hearing on Sunday and if Djokovic wins he will have just 24 hours to prepare for his opening match against Miomir Kecmanovic as the Australian Open confirmed the first matches earlier today.

The proceedings got back underway for a short time.

Both parties have agreed to add a stipulation after the location of where Djokovic will be Saturday morning. This has allowed both parties to agree the detainment of Djokovic.

The reasons for the orders put in place in the session will be published Saturday morning.

Djokovic’s first Australian Open match set

The Australian Open have confirmed Djokovic’s first match will be on Monday.

This puts a timeline in place for his lawyers to try and win their case against the second visa cancellation.

The case has been moved to the Federal Court of Australia which could put a delay on proceedings.

Djokovic is currently set to play Miomir Kecmanovic.

Djokovic’s case moved to Federal Court of Australia

While we wait for proceedings to get underway again, just a recap on the orders from Judge Kelly.

The government cannot make any attempt to remove Djokovic until proceedings are concluded.

The case will move to the Federal Court of Australia, something Djokovic’s lawyers tried to prevent, which means Judge Kelly won’t preside over the case.

Djokovic could be in detention until Sunday morning when there will be another hearing.

Whether this will impact the quick timeline Djokovic’s representatives were looking for is still to be confirmed.

The Australian Open begins on Monday.

There’s a short adjournment as details around the detainment of Djokovic in coming days are discussed by lawyers.

The judge says there will be a note that the detainment of Djokovic will be agreed by both parties. Djokovic’s representatives say they object as nothing has been signed.

Judge Kelly then said “you can’t ask me to broker this” and adjourned the court so they can discuss.

Djokovic hearing live

Djokovic will be detained over the weekend with a new hearing on Sunday.

Nick Wood raised concerns about security as the location of Djokovic will be known ahead of the player’s interview on Saturday morning. The judge replied ‘I will not be a party to, or in any way somehow inveigled into the very real possibility of a media circus if that’s what the parties anticipate.

“On mature reflection the obviousness of that circus might have occurred to everyone before 10.55pm on Friday. Don’t put this at my feet.”

Djokovic hearing live

Judge Kelly wants Djokovic’s lawyers to submit their submissions and affidavit as soon as possible.

He added immigration minister Alex Hawke cannot take steps to remove Djokovic until proceedings are concluded.

Court reporter Karen Sweeney tweeted: "Han [Kelly] says Djokovic should be taken to the interview with immigration officials at 8am tomorrow, then to his lawyers office from 10am until 2pm. Then from 9am Sunday he should be taken back to his lawyers offices for the court hearingsupervised by two ABF officers.”

Most significantly the case will transfer to the Federal Court of Australia.
