Djokovic Detained again in Australia
Novak Djokovic was arrested again shortly after winning a lawsuit for his revoked visa. The father of world number one, Srdjan Djokovic, has announced what is happening in Australia, the Daily Mail reports.
According to Serbian media, to whom the tennis player's father spoke, his son's re-arrest was an attempt by Australian authorities to deport him, despite a court ruling just hours ago.

We remind you that Novak Djokovic won the case for his deportation. Thus, the tennis player will be able to play in the Grand Slam tournament. The court rejected the decision of the immigration authorities that the athlete did not meet the health requirements for entering the country.
According to them, all foreign nationals must have completed a cycle of vaccination against COVID-19. It was for this reason that he was denied a visa.
