The Federal Court in Australia has released reasons for Novak Djokovic’s visa decision

The three judges say the Immigration Minister’s decision to cancel his visa was not irrational or illogical to be concerned that the support of anti-vax groups may prompt protests and community transmission of COVID-19

The judges also say the merits or wisdom of the minister’s decision wasn’t considered, only whether or not it was lawful.

The panel of Federal Court judges dismissed the world No.1s application against his visa cancellation and he was deported on Sunday evening back to Serbia.

This figure includes the total amount of Australian Open prize money that he could have claimed had he won the tournament.

A source close to his agent added he was poorly treated in the quarantine hotel in Melbourne. His mother revealed how it was full of fleas and maggots, saying he was kept a virtual prisoner.

The debacle doesn’t stop there, the Australian Open is well underway and there are claims Tennis Australia filled out Novak’s visa forms and “paid for all of his legal fees”

A local identity claims the tennis champ was asked to “provide information” laid out by Tennis Australia” and novak “did not know” what was actually written on his documents.

Now the TENNIS Australia Boss refuted those claims that it footed the bill for Novak’s legal battle, dodging questions about the tennis body’s dealings with government.

In an interview with Newscorp The tournament director says “I have seen those reports … and we don’t really go into the detail of financial arrangements we have with players but those reports are simply untrue”

This grand slam has been nothing but a headache for all involved, it’s believed Novak’s endorsement deals that are worth more than $40 million dollars a year are on the line too.
