Australian Government delays decision on Novak Djokovic: Open postpones draw

The Australian Government had to decide this morning whether to expel the country from Novak Djokovic, before the Australian Open draw took place, but has not yet done so. The tournament has announced that it is delaying the draw until further notice. The soap opera continues.

The Serbian tennis player was detained in a hotel upon arrival in Melbourne for not being vaccinated against Covid-19 and – later it was known – lying in the entry document, to which must be added the cataract of contradictions on his recent positive , contagion with which he granted interviews, met with young people and could even have traveled to Spain.

Justice agreed with ‘Nole’, who was able to leave the hotel and start training, but the government has the last word, under great pressure from both sides: those who ask for forcefulness and those who defend the freedom of the athlete not to get vaccinated.

The controversy, of planetary repercussion, coincides with a record of Covid cases in Australia in the last 24 hours.
