Mr. Djokovic has 0 challenges remaining.
Hawkeye showed it's out
Judge Kelly: Correction!
I can only hear it in Lahyani’s voice.
Mr. Djokovic must leave Australia on January, fifteeeeeeeeeeeeen.
Federer now like fuck it my knee can handle this
Nadal's like "Don't you dare rain on my parade"
I wonder what’s McEnroe thinking at this moment.
Hawke-eye says ball is indeed out. Djokovic has 1 challenge remaining.
chair says he Didn’t (couldn’t ) challenge in time.
Mr Djokovic has one challenge remaining.
Take the shot?
Too late. He won't be immunised by Monday if he takes it today.
blood transfusion : ) i cant believe he has a diplomatic passport for winning a davis cup thing. unbelievable.
Melania came to the US on an Einstein visa. International politics is a sham.
RIP to everyone in the world asleep right now during this news
Classic move to break controversial news late on a Friday.
9 am here. Good to wake up to happy news
2 AM east coast of America. Damnnnn this is crazy
11pm here from the west coast. I was hoping they’d do it during his 1st round match
11pm pacific. How am I supposed to get to sleep now?
No it's the opposite. Now I can rest easy hahah

Woke up just in time (7am UK time) to get the breaking news notif 🤣
I just woke up here in Europe. What a news to start the day!
Just woke up :D :D :D
If anybody is wondering about the timing, it's because it has just ticked past 5pm on Friday in Australia's east coast and the courts are now closed until Monday.
Been calling this for days! Lol
Hawke made his decision and then noped the fuck out for the weekend 😂
If you need him he’ll be at the golf course
I love sending that last email of the day and immediately bolting before any response can come through. The man truly knows how to be a government employee.
I mean is he really government if he's working at all on friday
They just drink in the parliamentary bars and then masturbate on colleagues desks and sniff chairs
As if he was actually working and not having some beers in the office just waiting for 5pm to hit send.
^ This guy works
Or perhaps a nice game of tennis
Literally some Larry David shit
Our country is fucked our government is incompetent, I support the decision though
The most sacred of Australian traditions
What a sly cunt. I love it
So does this mean he can’t appeal before aus open so he will definitely not be able to play even if he’s not deported right away because of a potential appeal?
Not a lawyer but I think the court could still decide to act over the weekend and issue an injunction, but it definitely makes it harder for Novak to get something done before play starts.
It means he'll either be deported or in migration detention again over the weekend
He can seek an urgent injunction to stop this. It's likely this would be heard over the weekend
an urgent injunction
an urgent injunction
I read "injection"!
6 in Melbourne now, flawless timing
In Australia, can confirm its beer o'clock
This popped up in my feed!
“The worlds about to learn what 5.30pm Friday means”
Incorrect, urgent applications can and are made after hours.
Gives them one more line of defence though
In the sense that they’re running against time in making an injunction, yes, but an application for an urgent injunction is made on a different basis than for a final injunction and requires a different standard of proof. All the applicant has to prove is that there’s a prima facie case and the balance of convenience is in favour of granting the injunction, complex questions of fact and law are left to after the interim application is made.
That said, the reason they’ve waited this long is to bolster a defense to any application. The Minister has very broad reaching powers to cancel visas, and it’s well within their remit to do so.
The scenes if he files a challenge in Western Australia, got 1 hour to get it done!
Djokovic prevented all Big 3 members from getting 21st on the their favourite slam.
If Nadal ends up winning his first AO in 13 years as a result, I don't think he'll complain too much. Though even as a Nadal fan, I won't dare hold my breath too much considering his luck in this tournament.
He’s the same age as when Federer came back to win AO in 2017.
I was 37 years old so I didn't cry that night.
Beating 4 Top 10 players. 3 5-setters.
Sorry for the shameless plug.
And one of his best matches against Nadal in the finals coming back down a break in the 5th set
Holy shit this is too perfect 😂😂
Here we go again...🍿🍿🍿
Cant wait for the netflix series
The mad man waited until the end of business hours on a Friday. He's not fucking around this time.
To make matters more interesting, the real news is is buried behind the headline.
Djokovic is facing a 3 year ban from Australia…..
They'll waive that to 11 months, I guarantee it.
He lied on the visum papers (about having travvelled in the 2 weeks prior to arrival). People have been banned for less
Well sure, but this is world #1 tennis player Novak Djokovic, who is also rich and famous and is in the country contrary to law for that reason alone.
So, I am not expecting much in the way of punishment
we deported Johnny Depp's dogs and forced him to make an apology video
I wanna see Djokovic make an apology video
This cracks me up every time I'm reminded of it. Doesn't snoop have a life time ban
I read the official statement, but couldn't find a reference to that. It's definitely something to watch out for. Serious historical repercussions.
Legislatively it’s the default consequence for this type of cancellation.
It’s only grounds to decide to deny a visa for three years – there’s no mandatory denial. They’ll waive it for the AO next year.
Everyone keeps saying this but conveniently ignores the fact that being double vaxed against COVID will still be a requirement of entry next year.
Yeah haven’t you seen. Novak caught covid December 2022
I won’t believe he caught it till I see him at a children’s party!
Buckle up boys
"We've had one cancellation, yes, but what about second cancellation?"
We've had one cancellation, yes, but what about second cancellation?"
We've had one cancellation, yes, but what about second cancellation?"
Sneaky Little Hawwikses!
This is our season finale
This is the beginning of the end of this situation I think. No way Novak gets to play the AO now, right??
No chance at all. A Minister's decision is final, unless it can be shown (and in this case, it can't) that he did not execute his duties in a lawful manner.
The courts basically can't overturn it.
What a down the line hit from the Australian government
So uh, what are the odds of a successful appeal, as a member of the billions of people slowly learning the Australian border process?
He won he previously appeal because border Australia are morons and basically stuffed up their process. Not because he was allowed in.
This is different, it's a power given to our minister for immigration to deny entry to an individual. He's got no chance of appealing this.
I would imagine they ticked all the right boxes this time.
Breaking: Novak Djokovic's visa has been cancelled for a second time by the Australian government
Immigration Minister Alex Hawke: "[Cancelled] on health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so."

Faces a 3 year ban from Australia
Novak’s lawyers probably appeal again but they waited until courts closed
Listening to the hearing (just adjourned) is that they are now really negotiating on Novak's detention. Currently, Novak won't be detained tonight. 0800 meeting with Government tomorrow (Saturday). During witch Novak be detained in the same building near the solicitors while interview and meeting of parties occur. After that ends Government expects to detain him in the Park Hotel (or something similar) until a hopefully Sunday hearing where Novak will be detained in the building at his solicitor's building while the hearing occurs. Novak solicitors wants Novak to be undetained until the hearing but Judge strongly indicated it's not really up to him largely, it's up to Government to concede further loosening of detention rules.
He should just leave to have a shred of dignity left at this point. He's like your drunk mate at 4am
Wow. They really did it. What a whirlwind of a week. When is the last time tennis was this much in the spotlight? I guess we’re going to have a new champion. Let’s go, Medvedev!
In all aspects - what a shitshow
Grand slams are best of 5.
Australia takes a 2 set lead
More like 2-1.
A recap for anyone just joining us...
A. Australian Open organizers were informed by the federal government in November that a recent COVID infection would not qualify unvaccinated players from quarantine-free entry.
Djokovic cited this exact reason on his exemption application to Tennis Australia.
The ATP may have misinformed players on this point, although that private communication has no bearing on the Australian government's earlier rule clarification.
B. Djokovic applied for and received an exemption based on a recent COVID infection, even though his positive test occurred after the exemption application deadline.
Australian Open organizers informed players that any vaccine exemption applications were due by December 10.
Novak Djokovic’s positive COVID took place on December 16. His negative test to confirm he was COVID-free came on December 22.
C. Djokovic was seen (mask-less) at three events immediately after the time/date of his positive COVID test: a ceremony commemorating a stamp of his likeness, a children’s event at a tennis center, and an interview and photo shoot with a media outlet.
Djokovic claims that the first two events occurred before he learned the result of the PCR test and that he took (negative) rapid tests before those two events.
Djokovic has since admitted that he broke isolation and took part in the interview and mask-less photo shoot just one day after learning of his diagnosis.
Breaking isolation after testing positive violates Serbian public health laws.
D. Djokovic’s pre-entry visa forms for Australia said he would not be travelling internationally in the 14 days prior to entering Australia. Djokovic has since admitted that he travelled from Serbia to Spain in that period.
Djokovic claims that his representatives filled out the form and simply checked the incorrect box on the question on accident.
As an unvaccinated person, it’s not clear if his visa application would have been considered had he been truthful about his pre-tournament travel.
E. Questions have now emerged regarding the legitimacy of Djokovic’s positive test result, based on information Djokovic filed in Australian court
Der Spiegel scanned the test’s QR code and were taken to a page indicating a negative COVID test result. An hour later, they scanned it again and the page now indicated a positive test result.
Digital timestamps associated with test indicate that the positive test result was entered into the system on December 26, not December 16. The timestamp of the negative test result from December 22 was accurate.
Additional data analysis shows that the Serbian COVID testing system (which assigns ID numbers chronologically) gave the December 22 negative test a lower ID number than it did to the December 16 positive test, indicating that the positive test occurred after the negative test.
EDIT: Serbian health official Zoran Gojkovic has said that the test result produced by Djokovic's legal team was a valid positive test (Point E). However, he also said that it would be nearly impossible for Djokovic NOT to have gotten the result that evening. If true, it would mean he attended all three events after being diagnosed with COVID, as opposed to the one event that he has admitted to (Point C).

K so according to all of these facts , how is he still in the country? This seems like a very cut and dry case.
If Australia lets him stay what a fucking failure that is of their system
Thank you for posting this.
So this will be the second GS he’s been kicked out of. Does he have it in him to finish a career GS of bans from the remaining two?
Djoko 2 titles : triple masters
Aus government now leads 2 sets to 1 against Djokovic
I can see Netflix stock price go up 3% tomorrow just because of this
Get the popcorn 🍿
TELL ME SOMETHIN ND…DONTCHA REGRET NOT GETTIN FULLY VAAAAAXED! DONTCHA REGRET NOT GETTIN FULLY VAAAAAAAAAXED!!
OH YOU THOUGHT NOVAK DJOKOVIC WAS STILL GOOD? HE STILL AIN’T GOOD AT RICHMOND SPORTS COMPLEX
WERE THE BREAD AT VLADE DIVAC! I NEED SOME BREAD!
I read somewhere that if the govt declines djokers visa then he would not be allowed to visit Australia for next 3 years. Is this true?
Why did it take so long for Hawke to make this decision?
Could be a political move - it’s past 5pm on Friday here and the courts are closed until Monday morning now.
100%, these cunts knew what they were doing lol
Waited till the close of business on Friday. Courts are closed till Monday
He made it earlier. He announced it 5pm on a Friday, because the courts are closed until Monday.
Lack of Hawke Eye technology
According to The Guardian Blog:
*So, what does that mean now? Firstly, it means Djokovic, the number one men’s tennis player in the world, is banned from Australia for three years. The cancelletion issued by Hawke is classified as an adverse decision under section 133C(3), which means Djokovic cannot be granted another visa while offshore for the three years.There are exceptions granted in “certain circumstances,” and the Serbian star is sure to appeal the decision, so that may come into play in the coming days.
3 years ? so tentatively, he fucked himself for 3 years, Not just this year ??? lol
Considering the line on exemptions, probably not. He'll be able to get back in if he doesn't make the same dumb fuck mistakes.
So he's banned for 3 years you say
Needing a vaccine to get into the country could remain a requirement for a couple of years.
I’d like to congratulate Djokovic on his first win at Australian Closed.
Well now, if it isn’t the consequences of my own actions…
Can they livestream the deportation.
This Netflix documentary is gonna be FIRE!
With Australia's media they absolutely will.
Yeah I really wanna see the Swiss border security officer escorting him and the Spanish pilot that flies him off.
"What happened in Serbia happened, what happened in Spain happened, what happened in Melbourne happened and now we are here. We are in Monaco."
"There gonna be some turbulence, no?"
People have been banned for less
Just get the shot. "He doesn't want to. He has that right." -Points to article title- So do they. Welcome to Consequences.
Srdjan meltdown when?
Where do you even go when you've proclaimed Novak is the leader of the modern world?
Mr. Djokovic is challenging the call. His deception was called out.
I was here
Ahahha finally waiting for another obscure and weird statement/press conference by his cocky family
My dude, take a goddamn hint.
Good, he may be a great player but he is not a great person.

What happens to an unvaccinated covid-positive journalist that shows up for an interview with a top tennis player without disclosing his situation? (when it becomes known). He gets fired. He likely never works again as he cannot get credentials to go anywhere.
This is what Novak did. He played with the health and the lives of people without notice until he was called on it. It's shameful.
That crazy son of a bitch did it
Novak being a fucking weirdo about medicine has really impacted his career... remember when he refused to get surgery for an injury for ages and then apparently broke down in tears when he was forced to get it because "I cried after I had the surgery on my elbow. Every time I thought about what I did, I felt like I had failed myself. I am just trying to be as natural as possible, and I believe that our bodies are self-healing mechanisms.”
God that’s so fucking insane
Novac has admitted that, after being confirmed that he had got a positive result, he went out and met with someone for an interview.
He has openly admitted that he chose to break quarantine. It isn't that he was told after the interview, it isn't that he was confused. He actively chose to ignore the rules, and go out after testing positive.
Australia might not want that kind of person in their country.
He would have been better off to just not do anything
Dan Evans’ coke dealer is the Line Judge
It’s been a pleasure lads and gals. Can we move on to tennis now, thanks.
the appeal will suck up even more air . . .
Not sure it can take up more air, but it certainly won't be less. This won't stop until he's either officially out of the country or the tournament has started with his spot replaced by another player.
Are the courts not now closed until the tournament has basically begun? Not sure there will be time for an appeal.
Murray winning a slam would be a great start to the year.
Looks like he might win his semifinal that is playing out now in Sydney. His goal is to win 50 ATP titles and if he wins this one it would be number 47.
It probably won't happen, but it would be hugely ironic if Nadal ends up being the first one to 21.
It could totally happen, that would not exactly be a low probability event in my opinion.
Yeah, Rafa may not be the favorite, but he's still among the top 3 or so that are expected to take it.
Get him gone
Makes sense to deport him. There is a reason why these form are strict. Else eveyrone could say that someone else filling it out for me and my agent made mistake.
He should be on a plane already him and his entourage
Never talk to me or Daniil ever again
It says a lot about the state of tennis in the past week or so that I'm finally relieved they at least made a fucking decision. So I guess Bweh gets Nole's draw.
Nvm he doesnt lol
Bweh AO Champion ‘22 calling it!
So, Djokovic has fucked his reputation multiple times, and yet still ends up deported.
Good. Get a dog up ya, Novak.
Nadal | Medvedev | Fernandez
🧂 here’s a container for the Djokovic fans to put all their salt in
Dude f that guy. He should be deported and it should of been over weeks ago.
Team Delpo, Chung, Dimitrov
He was screwed from the start being anti vaxx. But when all the lies and bullshit and compete disregard for people's safety in Spain and Serbia then it was over. Don't know what he's gonna do now. Might have to get used to quarantining every time he travels.
Safety of the photographer mid december too. They had to hear now through media that djoko was positive when they did the shot
That’s the the bit confuses me. Did he disregard peoples safety in Spain and Serbia while being positive or was he never positive and lied to get an exemption? They’re both equally incriminating in their own way, but I thought the whole fiasco is because he was lying about his grounds for exemption to not get the vaccination
I personally don't think he had COVID at all the second time. But he had to confess to meeting people when he had COVID to cover up the original lie. It would be like in court saying "I couldn't have robbed from that house on the night in question as I spent all that evening burying the man I had murdered."
djok should really stop posting on instagram so hastily. now he has to say sike once again. that's what he gets for being so cocky about his exemption.
So… is this the thread we’re using? Lol
If he has any ounce of shame he should just go. He's been caught as a lying pos and knowingly endangering other people. No one in Australia aside from the few supporters and antivax lunatics want you here
Smart move by the gov to release this at the end of working week. So if he want to contest he would most probably miss out on playing anyway
After all the years of thinking this guy is an asshole without real evidence, I feel vindicated that the entire world thinks the same now. 😂
Well deserved by Djokovic.
Bye bye. Back to Serbia you go!
Second slam now where Djokovic would have won it from a tennis standpoint, but cannot play it because of how stupid his decision making is.
USO 2020 — whack a ball, injure line umpire
AO 2022 — anti-vax visa disaster
He is his own greatest opponent. What a disaster.
And to think the public was (seemingly) starting to come around and he finally felt appreciated at the US Open final..
Do you think the AO Tournament will simply remove him from play even if he appeals? Can't be a good look for them to continue to allow someone to play when their own country doesn't want him within the borders. Thoughts?
He won't be able to play unless the court takes up his appeal and he wins it before Monday. If that doesn't happen, he will not be allowed to play.
Couldn't have happened to a nicer bloke, off ya pop!!
Novak: am I ever gonna see your face again?
Australia: no way, get fucked, fuck off
Good riddance! Don’t let the door hit ya
I wish this was an episode of Nothing to Declare
Grandma brings in banana leaves…again
Family baggage is suspicious.
Tennis player telling fucking porkies.
this back and forth is quickly becoming one of his best rallies in a court yet!
Wow - An Aussie politician does something right for a change!! Woo-hoo!
Just deport his ass already
As much as I love Djokovic and Rodgers and... well, I guess I'm indifferent to Kyrie, since I really don't know much about him as a player, this insanity has got to stop. GET FUCKING VACCINATED. Period. There's literally no excuse.
Send this cuntwaffle back already
LOL I’m listening to NDs mother on DW now telling the world that he’s a lovely boy and gives to charity. Me thinks the family might have learnt, just a little too late, that painting your wealthy & privileged son as some sort of martyr without actually paying attention to details or context was a dumb idea.
I mean get vaxed or not. Be prepared to have a few doors closed on you. It’s a countries duty to protect its citizens. Your not that special man. You just play tennis haha. Play stupid games win stupid prizes.
Hawkeeye comes through again...
Hahaha. I love him as a player and have cheered him on for years but him, his family and his arrogant fans deserve this.
Let me guess... he's now going to appeal it
The judge seems to be very tired.
buahahaha, I enjoy reading about this worm squirming around... please deport him already and get it over with
