Novak Djokovic risks a new Australian Open ban
by | VIEW 204
Novak Djokovic has obviously not revised his position on vaccination. Although during the Tel Aviv tournament he had confided that he was still awaiting a decision. "If the immigration department decides to grant him a special allowance, the question naturally arises of what all the others who have undergone the exact same treatment can ask themselves.
If the decision were overturned, it would be a slap in the face for all the people who have been vaccinated, just because Djokovic is Djokovic "concluded Andrews. Djokovic, who after the tour in Australia was forced to skip the North American trip too, has restarted from a 'back-to-back' in the major circuit with titles in Tel Aviv and Nur-Sultan.
In the background, the 1000 of Paris-Bercy and above all the Finals of Turin, which is guaranteed to remain in the Top 20 in the Race.
Djokovic out from the Australian Open 2023?
The presence of Novak Djokovic at the Australian Open 2023 is not obvious.
On the contrary. Craig Tiley during a long interview with The Age a few weeks ago had hinted that all the organs of Australian tennis were working in an attempt to recruit all the best players on the circuit. Without mentioning Novak Djokovic, the CEO of Tennis Australia had hinted that a decisive step forward had been made for the Serbian phenomenon.
A diametrically opposed thought for Karen Andrews, the shadow minister of Australian internal affairs, who in the course of an interview with ABC Australia said she was firmly opposed to the cancellation of the sentence that established not to grant Djokovic a visa for the next three years.
Andrews has no longer headed a ministry since last May, but she remains a very influential figure within the political world. "I don't think there are any reasons why the decision should be reversed simply because he can afford it economically," she explained.
"The government should also consider all other people whose visas have been canceled. There cannot be a rule for Novak Djokovic and a rule for everyone else. It's not fair," she continued with great firmness.
