Conflicts continue shortly after the start of the first round of the Australian Open. Novak Djokovic was detained again by immigration authorities on Saturday after his case to prevent Australia from deporting him for not being vaccinated against COVID-19 reached three higher court judges.

How it happened? Police closed a lane behind the building where Djokovic’s lawyers work and two vehicles left the building in mid-afternoon local time. In television images it was possible to see Djokovic, wearing a mask, in the back seat of a vehicle and near a detention hotel used by immigration authorities.

The Serbian tennis player has already spent four nights confined to a hotel near central Melbourne before being released on Monday, when he won an appeal against the cancellation of his visa due to procedural formalities; however, Immigration Minister Alex Hawke again invalidated the 34-year-old tennis player’s visa.

A deportation from Australia would bar Djokovic from returning for three years, although that sanction could be lifted depending on the circumstances. The best tennis player in the world has acknowledged that his travel declaration was incorrect, since he did not report his presence in multiple countries during the two weeks prior to his arrival in Australia.

But that was not why Hawke decided his expulsion from the country was in the public interest: court documents filed on Saturday by the Serb’s legal team revealed that the minister claimed that “Djokovic is perceived by some as a talisman for the anti-vaccine community.”

‘Nole’ has won the last three editions of the Australian Open. He has won 20 titles in Grand Slam tournaments, so he is tied with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer as the greatest champions in the great events of the men’s circuit in history.
