 >:(……..there are AUSTRALIAN NATIONALS who can’t return home right now because of the country’s strict Covid protocols, and this PRICK thinks he can lie on his visa application, blame the discrepancies on his “team,” then be allowed to participate in this tennis tournament.

And the freaking Serbian prime minister had the GALL to call in the Australian ambassador to Serbia and rake dude over the coals over the way they are “disrespecting” this entitled, arrogant clown.

If the Aussies back down and let this mofo into the country so he can participate in the AO, then they might as well rip up their covid restrictions and, at a minimum, allow their nationals back into the country.

Man, mofos take this OBSESSION with sports/entertainers/celebrity culture to extremes, the likes of which boggles the mind.   :no:

Novak Djokovic leaves Australia, 'disappointed' after court dismisses deportation appeal  :clap: :clap: :clap:

https://www.espn.com/tennis/story/_/id/33076998/novak-djokovic-loses-deportation-appeal-australia

MELBOURNE, Australia -- Novak Djokovic's final bid to avoid deportation and play in the Australian Open despite being unvaccinated against COVID-19 ended Sunday when a court unanimously dismissed the No. 1-ranked tennis player's challenge of a government minister's decision to cancel his visa.

Djokovic said he was "extremely disappointed" by the ruling but respected it. He released a statement shortly after three Federal Court judges unanimously upheld a decision made Friday by Immigration Minister Alex Hawke to cancel Djokovic's visa on public interest grounds because he is not vaccinated.

Djokovic, 34, has won a record nine Australian Open titles -- including three in a row -- but he won't get the chance to try for a 10th this year. Hawke confirmed Sunday that Djokovic "has now departed Australia."

A masked Djokovic was photographed in a Melbourne airport lounge with two government officials in black uniforms. He left at approximately 11 p.m. local time on an Emirates flight to Dubai, the same United Arab Emirates city he flew to Australia from.

 :clap:……….yeah, definitely applaud the decision of this Australian three judge federal panel that upheld the cancellation of dude ‘s visa. An alternative decision would have made a mockery of the Aussies’ covid protocols.

Among other things, I thought it was quite interesting that Serbian leaders tried to slam Australian officials for this decision. And then said they couldn’t wait for dude to return to Belgrade so he could be feted with a “hero’s” welcome. Well, guess what, dude flew from Melbourne to Dubai, the same place from which he flew TO Melbourne.

But, hey, President Macron has already stated that he’s cool with dude going to Paris to compete in the French Open, which follows next.   And so it goes…….. :no:

OH^^^was unaware of the possibility of the 3 years ban, but am certainly not surprised. The Aussies are VERY SERIOUS about their Covid protocols, and pride themselves on their relatively low infection and morbidity rates. They’re not as severe as China about Covid restrictions, but damn close.

UPDATE:

Dude arrived back in Belgrade, Serbia this morning. The Serbian President is calling the deportation proceedings against dude a “witch-hunt,” notwithstanding the fact the  Serbian President is vaccinated, urges “dude” to do the same, and only around 60% of the Serbian population is vaccinated.  Conversely, around 93% if the Australian population is vaccinated, with a comparatively low death rate.

And, second major update, French authorities just announced that anyone hoping to compete in the French Open set for May MUST show proof of vaccination. The FO is the next major tournament after the AO.

Stay tuned………..

The president of Serbia should have said he is a liar and brought shame to the integrity of Serbia.

Great news from the French!!!   :clap: :clap: :clap:

Looks like Wimbledon maybe his only chance at a major this year.

 ??^^^uhhhh, OH, speaking of Wimbledon, it appears that dude will have to comply with a 21days or so quarantine period before he can compete there. Currently, there is a RAGING national controversy in England about ole sloppy a.z.z British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, holding all kinds of events violating the country’s protocol rules. They getting ready to run that mofo out of office.

Again, stay tuned…………. ;D

https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/tennis/no-vaccine-no-french-open-for-djokovic-says-french-sports-ministry/ar-AASRjWW

No vaccine, no French Open for Djokovic, says French Sports ministry   :clap: :clap: :clap:

PARIS (Reuters) - Novak Djokovic could be barred from playing in the French Open as things stand now after the Sports Ministry said on Monday there would be no exemption from France's new vaccine pass law.

World number one Djokovic, who has not been vaccinated against COVID-19, was deported from Australia on Sunday before the first Grand Slam tournament of the year after losing a court case to have the cancellation of his visa overturned.

France's vaccine pass law, approved by parliament on Sunday, will require people to have a certificate of vaccination to enter public places such as restaurants, cafes, cinemas and long-distance trains.

"The rule is simple. The vaccine pass will be imposed, as soon as the law is promulgated, in establishments that were already subject to the health pass," the ministry said.
