The two dates that put the Djokovic version on its positive

The Novak Djokovic lawyers reported this Saturday that their client had registered a positive in a PCR test on December 16, although the 'number one' of the ATP never reported that result to public opinion. Today, with the tennis player retained at a hotel in Melbourne waiting for a possible deportation by the Australian Government, the situation of Djokovic gets further closer to what happened over the last three weeks.

First, the deadline established by the Tennis Regulation Australia, the body that regulates the first major of the season, the deadline to request the sanitary exemption with which to access the oceanic country expired on December 10, six days Before Nole's positive. In those days, the Government chaired by Scott Morrison had also warned Australia's Open that a pre-Covid infection would not be a sufficient factor to ensure entry into the country who had not been vaccinated.

In addition, a review of the Djokovic agenda that week prior to Christmas throws striking conclusions. On the same Thursday 16, the champion of 20 Grand Slams attended an act in Belgrade where he received a seal with the image of him and Friday, 17, supposedly after knowing the result of the PCR, he went to a ceremony at Novak Tennis Center . In his own facilities, he could see himself without a mask or any kind of caution while he participated in an awards ceremony with young Serbian tennis talents.

It must be remembered that on December 17 was exactly one month for the beginning of the Australian Open, where Djokovic set out to overcome the record that so far shares with Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal. By then he did not have any type of document that allowed him to transfer the border.

According to the version of his lawyers, on December 30, 2021 he received a letter from the Medical Director of Tennis Australia that exempt him from the vaconation, since he had recently recovered from the Covid ". The defense of 'number one' also alleged that the client of him had not submitted any kind of symptom during the previous 72 hours.
