Novak Djokovic’s situation in Australia is complicated. An Australian judge ordered this Friday during an emergency hearing that the Serbian tennis player not be deported “immediately” from Australia until the justice reviews the government’s decision to annul his visa for the second time.

The Melbourne Federal Circuit Court today held an emergency visit after the oceanic country’s Immigration Minister, Alex Hawke, canceled the tennis player’s visa, who entered the country without being vaccinated against covid-19, for health reasons and of public order.

Judge Anthony Kelly also determined that Djokovic remain free until 8 am on Saturday in Australia – 6:00 pm (Peruvian time) – when he attends an appointment with immigration officials in the city of Melbourne, where he will be arrested.

The magistrate also determined that Djokovic, who has not been vaccinated against Covid-19, be transferred on Sunday by two customs agents from the place where he will be detained to the meeting with his lawyers to prepare the case.

This case, which was transferred to the Federal Court, a higher instance, is expected to begin and conclude on Sunday, one day before the start of the Australian Open, which takes place between January 17 and 30 in the city of Melbourne.

“Mr. Djokovic might have to play on Monday or Tuesday. In those circumstances, we are very concerned about the time,” said Nicholas Wood, Djokovic’s lawyer, during today’s hearing.

Wood also pointed out that Minister Hawke decided to cancel the tennis player’s visa on the grounds that his presence could stir the “anti-vaccine sentiment” in Australia, whose government applied one of the toughest policies in the world against Covid-19 and is facing a rebound in cases due to the emergence of the omicron.
