Novak Djokovic is waiting for the Australian government’s decision on whether he can stay in the country to compete at the Australian Open 2022. However, he will certainly face the alienation of many people.
Djokovic has not been vaccinated so far and the Serbian star also vaguely declared the date he was positive for Covid-19 and his travel schedule for 2 weeks before arriving in Australia.
But the most serious is still the fact that Djokovic did not isolate after knowing he was positive, coming into contact with children, reporters and many other people in many public places after being infected.
NewsCorp conducted a two-day online survey of Australian public opinion through the Herald Sun and Daily Telegraph newspapers, and the results showed that 83% of the more than 60,000 voters wanted Djokovic. deported from Australia.
An equally remarkable development is that at 10:30 a.m. today, January 14 (local time), there will be a rehearsal held at Melbourne Park, the training session will allow journalists to work. during 15 minutes. Djokovic’s name was originally included in the list of players to appear, but has now been crossed out without notice.
Djokovic’s removal does not mean he will miss afternoon training, although Australian public opinion is buzzing that a decision from Immigration Minister Alex Hawke is about to be made. Some Australian parliamentarians have asked Mr. Hawke to make a decision as soon as possible, because the Djokovic scandal is clouding events that they consider more important and need more government attention.
