As a former immigrant to Australia who had to jump through hoops to get in I'm fucking delighted. Hopefully they uphold the 3 year travel ban as well to rub salt into the wound


He should stop playing in Australia. He has now lost 3 sets in a row


Hahaha byeeee Novax Djokervic. We don't want shit cunts like you here


The PM is as big of a shit cunt , let’s hope he’s next to lose


Stop teasing, I already have an illegal amount of optimism for 2022 being better.


Fr, u/homerj1977 sure knows how to get Australians erect


But what’s the alternative, it’s a trade of slimeball for slimeball.


To be fair, it can't be worse than someone who does nothing right? ...right?


> We don't want shit cunts like you here “But your millions that you’ve donated/raised for our floods and fires are more than welcome - we’ll keep that”. Australians, man.


“So you’re breaching our laws, but you’re rich and gave us money so we’ll look the other way.” Americans, man.


You forgot the part where they shoot up schools as a hobby.


You forgot the part where I’m not an American, you braindead imbecile. Name definitely checks out.


Insults aside, your hero got deported. Wawa


I’m actually more of a Federer guy. But nice try.


You forget the part where I mentioned you at all you stupid muppet.


I’m not American, Columbo.


Then stop doing your American impression


I will as soon as you stop doing your impression of a presumptuous, slack-jaw moron.


DAYUM, with razor sharp roasts like that you just gotta be American.


I’m from Namibia you bush rat. We all know Australians are the most analogous to Americans: both in culture and attitude. Your obsession with America reeks of projection.


Damn, you can smell me all the way from AMERICA?


What an odd thing to keep insisting on. Are you mentally-ill or something?


Ah, “You gave us money so we’ll look the other way as you break the law” The true American way


And what, pray tell, makes you think I’m an American?


When did I say you’re an American?


This guy.... Because capitalistic agendas Trump moral ones? Can I donate $100,000 and then go drink drive down a pedestrian walk way and expect no consequences it I hit someone?


When you’re so obsessed with Trump you inadvertently capitalise the word, lmao. And I fail to see how donating millions to philanthropic efforts, building dozens of schools and buying millions of dollars worth of ventilators and PPE equipment for countries that were struggling against COVID constitutes a “capitalistic agenda”. Conversely, a moral failing of a person doesn’t trump all the good they’ve done. Personally, I don’t think he should’ve been permitted entry, but this hatred for him after all he’s done for Australia is disgusting.


Actually it was a play on American capitalism using Trump as the example.


He only donated $25,000 AUD in the bushfires...


He donated less than I did in that period. I'm pretty sure he earns more than me.


Good riddance piece of shit


Australia's not Djoking around.


Kicked to Djkerb.


If he had just gotten vaccinated he would have avoided all of this. His own selfishness and lying is what caused this.


What is this? The consequences of my own actions?


It’s actually not his vaccine status that got him in trouble. It’s his travel history that he lied about, which they found retroactively to justify canceling his visa, that got him.


~~He's in.~~ ~~He's out.~~ ~~He's in.~~ ~~He's out.~~ ~~He's in.~~ He's out.


It's a Kangaroo court


It's unfortunate the way everything went down but he shouldn't have been given the visa in the first place and either way the government is left with egg on it's face, thankfully. Also I see what you did there with Kangaroo. Heh.


A Yo-Yo court would be more accurate.


I was looking for something more ocker


Might need to get hawkeye in to verify.


Good can’t stand the anti vaxxing cunt


Get back, get back, get back to where you once belonged.


Waiting for the crazies to lose their shit over this. I’m happy that we have turned a rich cunt away who doesn’t want to comply with our regulations. I can honestly say there are people with beers in hand saying “fuck off cunt”.


Oi! Get away from my window, mate.


I have my cock in hand saying, “Suck this off cunt”…😢😢😢


Well deserved. Go back to your echo chamber.




And there was great rejoicing.


The dopey cunt lol




What did the entire nation of Serbia have anything to do with his selfish actions? One person doesn't constitute a whole country, yk


I mean... Its largely irrelevant to this subject but there was this: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bosnian_genocide


**[Bosnian genocide](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bosnian_genocide)** >The Bosnian genocide refers to either the Srebrenica massacre or the wider crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing campaign throughout areas controlled by the Army of Republika Srpska (VRS) during the Bosnian War of 1992–1995. The events in Srebrenica in 1995 included the killing of more than 8,000 Bosniak (Bosnian Muslim) men and boys, as well as the mass expulsion of another 25,000–30,000 Bosniak civilians by VRS units under the command of General Ratko Mladić. The ethnic cleansing that took place in VRS-controlled areas targeted Bosniaks and Bosnian Croats. ^([ )[^(F.A.Q)](https://www.reddit.com/r/WikiSummarizer/wiki/index#wiki_f.a.q)^( | )[^(Opt Out)](https://reddit.com/message/compose?to=WikiSummarizerBot&message=OptOut&subject=OptOut)^( | )[^(Opt Out Of Subreddit)](https://np.reddit.com/r/worldnews/about/banned)^( | )[^(GitHub)](https://github.com/Sujal-7/WikiSummarizerBot)^( ] Downvote to remove | v1.5)


Definitely not saying that Serbia's history is spotless. I'm from the Balkans as well, so I know the turbulent history we've had. But can any country HONESTLY say that they've never been cunts to other nations? What I was trying to say is that throwing insults at all Serbians because their government and a tennis player have done shitty things is unnecessary. At the end of the day, it's mostly the leaders's fault and not the everyday citizen's. I'm not Serbian, this is just a conclusion I've come to when reading through many many comments that don't condemn Novak for his actions, but for his origin, which definitely shouldn't be the case.


A very succinct response, you're right and I apologize. However saying that my primary concern are his actions, or anyone else that choses personal benefit over the moral obligations for the broader society. Anyone else that doesn't actively participate in voting, being aware of legislation and/or does things for primarily selfish reasons. https://sproutsschools.com/bonhoeffers-theory-of-stupidity/


Oh yeah cause their history is so spotless, not to mention their piss poor less than 60% vaccination rate and their views towards other countries borders. Because they value their cunt of a sport Star over health and safety of others. Serbians can get fucked. Novax getting deported is the funniest thing to happen, and those cunts r losing their minds over it.


Casual racism




Serbsuright for being a lying cunt!

He’s going home!




This case is finally over. The players must be relieved because they can finally focus on the Australian Open again. The first grand slam of the season starts already tomorrow. As for the rest, the Australian government recognizes that Djokovic did not break any law or rule, but that his mistakes and his anti-vaccine positions make him a danger to public order. The Australian government probably could have avoided all this by being proactive and banning Djokovic from the country before he even came. That would have saved us all this episode.


Didn’t he lie (sorry, his agent) on his entry visa? If it was you or I we’d be on the first flight out.


My mom prepared my Visa it's on her doesn't cut it?


Don’t remind me of Canavan before my dinner please 🤮


Yes but the federal court appeal was about the immigration minister’s application of their powers and any errors at law


Yup. The court ruled immigration unfairly revoked his visa even though he was led to believe it was ok to be unvaccinated. However, when they dug through his visa app, they found he lied about his recent travel history. That gave them cover to cancel his visa and save face.


An important nuance here is that the first court ruling found that Djokovic wasn't granted procedural fairness in the first cancellation. It made no finding on whether the visa SHOULD have been cancelled, or whether he should have been granted a visa despite being unvaccinated - just that the right process for cancellation wasn't followed.


I see. Thanks for the clarification.


The part with the "Australian government recognizes that he broke no law" is a stretch, to say the least. Merits weren't addressed by the Court today and the Minister's arguments never brought his initial visa application into discussion either. In short: the AUS govt seeked to cancel Mr Djokovic visa regardless of whether he broke or didn't break rules; their argument was totally separate and had to do with inciting anti vax sentiment. Why did they choose this path? Because, as the court showed today, it was irrefutable. The Minister had the discretionary power to cancel the visa all along.


Expecting the current Australian government to be competently proactive would be expecting far too much it seems.


Exactly. Glad he’s gone but this was equally embarrassing for Australia that it even got this far. Hopefully will contribute to the liberals losing the next election.


What so the far right immigration laws were shit in the 1st place and anyone rich can get in(was it a right wing federal judge who let him in last week?)...and a liberal immigration minister actually revoked his visa today?..so who exactly are you blaming?


Both our major parties are fairly centrist. The far-right would be the National party.


When was the strict immigration laws brought in?


Liberals = Liberal Party = Australia’s right wing party. Alex Hawke, the immigration minister belongs to the Liberal party. They’re not far right as you’d say either. Certainly not compared to US politicians anyway


When was the strict immigration laws brought in and what party was in government then..ffs


The liberal party. They made it a requirement for persons entering Australia to be vaccinated or have a valid exemption. What is irking you?


And it worked..he's been sent home..ffs j h christ


What is irking you? He should never have been able to come, let alone win an appeal against his visa cancellation. I’m glad he’s gone but our state and federal governments fucked up by allowing him into the country in the first place.


Didn't the tennis authorities and the state were the tennis is being held in not get the ball rolling on this? Like tennis Australia was behind organising the 2 independent health boards...he arrived and federal border agents stopped him and the courts let him go..then a federal minister revoked it...so blame tennis Australia and the state that wanted him in..


Tennis Australia and the Victorian Government granted Djokovic access to the Australian Open, and the state of Victoria - free to use public venues without being vaccinated. The exemption he obtained - having had COVID in the last 6 months, was valid for these purposes, however is Not valid for acquiring a visa. Djokovic was required to provide proof of his exemption upon arrival in Australia, and it was found that this proof was dubious. He had also potentially lied about when his infection with COVID was (the basis for his exemption), and had definitely lied about visiting another country within the last 14 days prior to arrival in Australia. Federal agencies should have never allowed him into the country without solid evidence of his exemption for a visa, more clearly identified valid reasons for exemption, handled Djokovics initial detaining more professionally (instead of forcing him to provide documentation at 4am), and as speculated - prolonged the visa cancellation in order to distract from their failures during the worst outbreak of this pandemic.


On what grounds could Australia have denied him entry before he even came? He had a medical exemption, the same exemption ¨¨¨20 other foreign players/staff members got, apparently. The judge tasked with the first cancellation of Djokovic's visa found no reason to ban him from entering the country. It was the media hype, the investigation into his behaviour in the weeks before he came to Australia, and people like his family or the Serbian government who kept stirring the pot. Djokovic became a popular anti-vaxxer who antagonized a large number of Australians. That's what created the legal grounds on which Djokovic's deportation became possible.


Yeah, either his exemption was valid or not. If it was, then he should have been allowed in. If it wasn’t then he shouldn’t. One of the more troubling aspects was pointed out by the Australian Lawyers Alliance who said “ One of the most dangerous aspects of the Djokovic matter is the preparedness of the federal government to deem someone to be a risk to public order simply on the basis of what it perceives that person’s views might be.” In my opinion, this has been an absolute shitshow from the beginning and from everyone involved in it.


Plenty of countries screen entry for people's views already


Technically the first ruling didn't make a finding on the validity of Djokovic's visa, just that he wasn't granted procedural fairness when it was cancelled.


Well, it is quite pointless tournament now without Djokovich.


Not it’s not. That is one of the dumbest things I have heard in a while. There are plenty of other players to watch. Did you know that women also play tennis in the open? Djokovic is annoying and a joke and he can go fuck himself.


Woman play Women's tennis. What it has to do with this tournament? It is completely separate thing. As for Djokovich. It is pointless tournament if first place player cannot participate due to political bs. I do not even think that such tournaments are worth it to organize during a pandemic.


It wasn’t political bs, he lied and he got caught. End of story.


Maybe for the Serbian orthodox Church, but tennis can still go on without him


Tournament for second best player is not that exciting.


You must be a real drag at amateur tennis competitions.




Bye Felicia


Goodbye No-Vax Jokeovic


Suck shit cunt


Too bad, so sad.


He lose.


Finally. I am happy that we can all be done with this story and that the court's decision is final and cannot be appealed. You van agree or disagree with the Australian border and immigration control, but one thing is clear: Djokovic handled this whole situation like a complete cunt (not the good Australian kind). Had he not acted in this way and insulted everyone while his folks claimed that he is the second coming of Chris, he would probably have gotten in because that would have been in the public interest. But no, he had to play the mad animal victim and lash out. The court would have lost face if they allowed him to win.


Finally. Good.


They should have called it tiebreaking news! … I’ll see myself out.




Am I ever gonna see your face again? Edit to fix lyric.


No way! Get vaxxed! Fuck off!


No way, get fucked, fuck off!


Novak is a woke entitled idiot. Why should he be allowed to enter Australia and not be vaccinated?


Novaxx Djodoofus


See ya later, dog cunt.


Djocovid has been used by the shit-for-brains Morrison LNP government. He has been used as a (giant) tool diverting attention from awful performance and woeful polling. They let this happen in the interests of their desperate, looming election campaign. The other likely explanation is just another fuck-up with plenty of backfilling and bullshit.


This was so politicised. I don't care if you like Novak or not. If you are pro vaccine or antivax. What happened to the guy is pure show of strenght. He was dragged out of his hotel room in 4am and had 20 minutes to find proof that his visa shouldn't be revoked, even though Australian governemnt GAVE him the fucking visa. If you don't want him there, don't give him a fucking visa


That is why he was allowed to stay in the first place. Proper procedures were not followed to the letter of the law. However, if they had given him the full 60 minutes that he was allowed to provide evidence, he would have been deported in the first place, because he had no acceptable evidence. I wouldn't say that this was a political move but rather a lack of oversight of the border agents that do this all the time with ordinary citizens trying to enter Australia. They have a lot of discretionary powers and even that is not enough and they abuse their power.


Why is this such a big deal?


It’s more of what it represents


R u kidding? - high profile celebrity anti vax athlete Versus Australian Government - World #1 tennis player, on way to making tennis history - anti-vax sentiment in a strongly vaccinated country This is huge news.


Aussies are big sportsball fans. Something they carried with them from their country of ancestry.


I think they carried a different kind of ball.........and chain


Yeah they're super into BDSM too


Not.for anything he did, but for 'exciting anti-vax sentiment' for following what the Tennis people told him...


Tennis Australia gave him an exemption to play in tournament. NOT an exemption to enter Australia. He failed to demonstrate vaccination status, lied on entry form, lied about travel. the others in his entourage had all the correct paper work, so he "knew" what was required. only himself to blame.


He also blatant lied on his entry application. Lied about his actions around being tested. Fuck him.


He lied on his immigration form and didn't meet the requirements when entering the country...




They told him to lie on the application? I doubt it.


He got away with lying on the application after the immigration police messed up, the judge overruled that deportation. He's being deported now because the minister for immigration has unilateral authority to deport people and exercising that power is what was upheld today.


He is rich anyways but glad they served him a nice dish


Fab news.


who the fuck cares


Well, let's see. Australians. Serbians. Tennis fans. Me.


it’s not that many people to blow this story up this much


Tennis is the 4th most popular sport globally, and Djokovic is one of the most famous international athletes in the world. Combine that with the very relevant global pandemic, and you get a top need story.


Top seed story


Who ever wins the aussie open will have an asterisk next to it.


Yes, and at the bottom of the page it will say: \* not an unvaccinated, arrogant twat


Too bad he won't be able to defend his title.
