Djokovic will not be detained or deported today

A lawyer for the Australian Government said that the Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic “will not be detained tonight” nor deported pending his meeting with Immigration officials on Saturday morning.

Stephen Lloyd, the lawyer for the Ministry of Immigration, made this statement during a hearing in a Melbourne court, which is held after the Australian Government has revoked the tennis player’s visa for health and public order reasons.

For the moment there will be no more training at the Rod Laver Arena and the world number one will have to go to the Australian Border Force in the early hours of Saturday to undergo an interrogation.

When this ends, you will be taken to the Park Hotel in Melbourne where you have already been when entering the country. There he will wait until the final trial, scheduled for Sunday, is held. It will be there when it will be known if the Serbian is deported or can compete in the Australian Open 2022.
