Novak Djokovic faces mixed reactions over Australia travel form error

  • Novak Djokovic said on Wednesday that an incorrect answer was made on his Australian entry documents, breaching the country’s strict laws on reporting recent travel amid COVID-19, as the government said it was still considering whether to deport the tennis star.
    Some Melbourne residents said they were unimpressed by a recent statement released by the Serbian tennis player, who attributed a mistake on his documents to "human error."
    “I feel he's come across as he's above it all. But it does feel like we've stuffed up on our side. And so it's a bit of a mess,” said resident Teyhan Ismain.
    Djokovic was held in immigration detention in Melbourne for several days after his visa was cancelled by border force officials, who questioned his medical exemption for a requirement to be vaccinated for COVID-19. He was later released when a judge ruled the cancellation of the visa was "unreasonable" because the player was not given time to consult with lawyers and tennis officials when he arrived in the country.

    Its true.. It will be his agents and not him who obviously does his documents but the responsibility lies with him.
    But anyways.. I see it as unreasonable to blow this out of proportion. He aint an intruder into a country, he is a tennis player who is playing tennis upon AO invitation. We should let him play tennis and ensure he feels sorry for his irresponsibile L EQUIPE photo shoot though.
    And to these haters... I can guarantee either they are misdirecting their anger against the govt against novak or they arent tennis lovers.. They are federer - nadal lovers whom novak has humiliated from 2011 on. Time to be a sport guys.. Grow up !! Let tennis win for tennis s sake.

      He lied on his travel declaration document, twice. Yeah no big deal cos it’s tennis right and if you’re not a tennis lover you’re a tennis hater. Or maybe you’re a person that abides by the rules or not. If he can’t abide by the laws of the land then he’s free to return to his home. Bye bye cheater.

    Djokovic's lies and mistakes don't help his cause, unfortunately. But let the Serbs deal with what happened in Serbia. What worries me infinitely more is that young people like Jake Leahy (2:07) have bought into a very dangerous narrative. Djokovic cannot "endanger public safety" is he is not sick and tests negative, can he, mate? FIRST PRINCIPLES, Jake and young Australians! Just test all players at the training grounds and before each game - who tests negative, plays. Is that simple. PS. Some food for thought: talk to some players - I bet that most are more frightened by getting infected by the highly contagious Athlete's Foot or Tuberculosis than Covid. Does it mean that we should test everyone for those, maybe alongside another 50 medical conditions?

But do you really think this world beating tennis superstar needs to wear his name on his shirt? People that don’t already know his name and what he does, don’t care to know his name and probably aren’t going to learn it.
