Every day its delicious twist on the Djokovic affair. While the world number 1 is now training on the courts of the Australian Open while waiting to know what sauce he will be eaten in by the draw Thursday, date on which we can estimate that the government will have decided on its fate, The Herald Sun reports new revelations.

The Murdoch group’s Australian tabloid reveals supporting document that Australian police are investigating a possible lie by Novak Djokovic in the form he handed over to customs upon his arrival in Melbourne. According to the daily, the Serb would have checked “no” to the question “Have you traveled during the 14 days preceding your arrival in Australia”, even though he should have been in Spain since December 22.
However, the star was photographed on December 25 in Belgrade playing tennis in the street, before heading to southern Spain, from where Djoko took off for Melbourne via a stopover in Dubai on the 4 January. The said document would have been completed in full by Tennis Australia upstream, according to the Serbian camp. In short, we are looking for the little beast everywhere, while a spokesperson for the immigration department quoted by The Age believes this morning “that it would be inappropriate to comment” on the government’s upcoming decision. The same source clearly implies that the situation will not change on Tuesday.
