Andy Murray also echoed. The Scotsman assured that it is “positive” news that Novak Djokovic has been released, but pointed out that there are still “issues to be resolved” regarding the Serb’s situation.
The number one in the world was released this Monday after a judge revoked the cancellation of his visa, but the Serbian has not yet explained why, if he tested positive on December 16, he attended an event in Belgrade on the 17th and a photo session on the 18th.
“It’s positive that he’s not stopped anymore,” said the three-time Grand Slam champion, after beating Norway’s Viktor Durasovic at the Sydney tournament. “But there are still several issues to be resolved and they will have to answer about their isolation. I’m sure they will talk about it in the coming days”.
In addition to the doubts about his positive, there is also the problem that Djokovic, when filling out the documents to be able to fly to Australia, omitted that he had traveled from Belgrade to Spain at Christmas and that, therefore, he had made a flight in the 14 days prior to arrival in the oceanic country.
Immigration Minister Alex Hawke still has the possibility to exercise his personal right to withdraw Djokovic’s visa again and order his deportation, but has not yet made a decision.
