“See you in Paris” – Djokovic’s parents

Published

on

Novak Djokovic‘s father Srdjan Djokovic is taking aim at the Australian government after his son was sensationally deported from Australia ahead of the Australian Open.

Srdjan Djokovic is likening Novak’s treatment with an assassination attempt. 

On Instagram, Mr Djokovic says: “The attempt to assassinate the best athlete in the world has ended, 50 bullets in Novak’s chest.”

“See you in Paris,” he said. 

The French Open will be held in Paris in May.

Novak Djokovic has been deported from Melbourne, Australia.

Novak Djokovic’s quest for a record 21st grand slam title has been thrown into turmoil with his deportation out of Australia.

Missing the Australian Open – and potentially the following two editions at Melbourne Park unless he successfully appeals an automatic three-year ban from the country – could be the beginning of a rough patch for the world number one.

The unvaccinated Djokovic could encounter similar visa issues in many other countries, including the host nations of the other three annual grand slam events.

Unvaccinated players will not be permitted into America for this year’s US Open.

His access to Paris for the French Open also remains uncertain. As a citizen of the European Union, Djokovic is likely to be allowed into Paris to defend his Roland Garros crown providing he follows France’s current and strict protocols for the unvaccinated.

The 25-year old beat three-time Olympian Kyle Chalmers in the 100 metre butterfly heat at the Australian Swimming Championships.

If he places in the top three spots in the final he will book a place in the team for the Commonwealth Games.

He’s on track to achieve the feat given only dual-Olympic bronze medallist Matthew Temple recorded a faster time in the heats.

Simpson shaved nearly one second off his personal best time, and if he finishes in the top two in the final he’ll also be eligible to swim at the world titles in Budapest next month.
