I’m skeptical mate, just because I don’t trust any intention from this mob. I didn’t want him to be able enter  for my own reasons but I feel this is something more sinister

He’s filled out forms wrong, if it was John Smith he’d have been sent back ages ago. There could be other stuff going on but tbh he’s been some what of a figure for the mad anti vaxxers on my newsfeed so seeing them go from celebrating his victory to this now is worth it for the meltdowns… ;)

You’re right, it would have been a bad precedent to set, and by law how it is written. Still, I feel suspicious

Yes. They let him under a false pretense so they can deport him for the PR. Johnny Foreigner getting comeuppance is such an effective tool

Forgive me if I’m wrong mate, but this is no typical “Johnny Foreigner” victim example if that’s what you’re insinuating. The guy is a millionaire and a celebrity. His actions are frankly quite odd for someone in his position.

I’m hearing that Spain are now also opening an investigation against him where he apparently lied to the Spanish authorities. He is supposed to have travelled to Australia from Spain.

'What's good for the goose is good for the gander' as the saying goes, kick him out, if this had been some tennis girl or guy who is ranked somewhere like 56th region they would have had their visa cancelled and kicked out of Aussie land and no one would have batted an eyelid, just because its Djokovic does not give him the right to stay and play and I just hope this might happen again in other countries who have this Covad policy and he tries to enter there and they kick him out too.

Most governments do use these opportunities as PR, especially with well known personalities mate.

Nothing unique there.

He needs to go. Seeing him lift the trophy in two week's time after refusing the vaccine, admitting he just carried on going about his life after testing positive for Covid and probably infected others, and admitting that he lied on his visa form, is a kick in the teeth not just to regular Australians who would never have got away with trying to do that to get into their own country, but to people in that same boat around the world.

If Djokovic is allowed to play this tournament and especially if he goes on to win it, he will become a worldwide poster boy for rules not applying to people with money and status the same as they apply to the rest of us.

He needs to go. It really shouldn't be up for debate.

In other slightly more cheerful news, Andy Murray won his semi-final against Opelka in Sydney and is now in his first main tour final since 2019.

That doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be brought up and addressed. It is par the course  of things happening  and Morrison taking the credit while actually doing nothing. The point being is that they don’t care about the actual rules and if the popular idea was to let Novax in, they would. The people that are running the show are the exact same people as Djokovic, rich, entitled people that think the rules don’t apply to them.  It is an absolute mess of a situation and he should have been turned away day one, but they have made a meal from it and let it get out of control.

Totally agree with you bro.

It’s sad to see someone with the iconic status that Djoković has end up being someone that entertains absolute nonsense and then makes a worldwide fool of himself.

The fact there are nutters that either believe in that codswallop around the world demonstrating in his defence or those in his country that feel this is an afront to their national identity is something that can be ignored. Those specimens were there kicking up dust before this even occurred on other issues that they cared to care about.

I didn’t expect this.

Spain has now said he won’t be able to perform on any of Spain’s ATP tournaments unless he gets vaccinated.

I’m starting to feel sorry for him now. Trying to get his agent’s number because there’s a hole in the fence of my local park’s tennis courts and I know where that hole is. He can play there. Although the park keeper is a bit of a nutter... He chases after people with his wheelbarrow.

Murray through the first round after five sets against Basilashvili. Should have a chance of another couple of wins having beaten the seeded player in that section.

Hopefully! Would love him to have a good run.

Murray and Raducanu both eliminated, sucks from the British perspective. Dan Evans at least progresses to R3 with a walkover win against Rinderknech.

Medvedev beat Nick Kyrgios in four sets in what was the match-up of the day. Tsitsipas and Rublev also through. Seeded players Dimitrov and Schwartzman knocked out.

A few upsets on the women's side. 3rd seed Garbine Muguruza knocked out in straight sets along with 6th seed Ana Kontaveit and 12th seed Rybakina.
