Let us take a look at the reactions from individuals with regard to the latest development in the case of Novak Djokovic. Cahill stated, “No. Not at all. The fault lies everywhere here. It’s been a mess. Novak, TA, Vic Gov, Federal Gov. It should’ve been a hard rule entering this country considering what the folks have been thru. Get vaccinated and come play the AO, or if not maybe see you in 23′. No wiggle room.”

No! Novak Djokovic kicked an ‘own goal’ out of the park, all on his lonesome. He has knowingly misled, obfuscated & peddled incorrect information whilst posting on social media the means of his own sporting demise; no doubt a temporary situation but residual damage will remain.

Novak is a great tennis player & one of the all time greats. No doubt. But he’s lied on entry forms, been out in public when he knew he had covid & is now facing legal cases. He’s entitled to not be jabbed but Oz is entitled to throw him out ! Agree ? #shambles

All is not done as yet. There will be an appeal by the legal team of Novak Djokovic. However, for the moment, World No. 1 has his plate full of legal complications.

The Australian Open 2022 begins on the 17th of January and will end on the 30th of January. It will be interesting to see the latest developments.
