The view on the deportation of Djokovic in a Court of Melbourne

Australian justice began this Monday to analyze whether to deport Serbian Novak Djokovic, who is isolated from Thursday at a hotel in the city of Melbourne after the authorities of the oceanic country will revoke his visa for not being vaccinated.

The one-day view in the Federal Circuit Court of Melbourne, which was planned to be held from 10 local time (23.00 GMT on Sunday), began delayed and with technical problems in "online" retransmission.

On the eve, Judge Anthony Kelly rejected a request from the Australian government to delay sight until Wednesday.

The first morning shift corresponds to the lawyers of the Serbian tennis player, who have two hours to present their arguments against Australia's decision to revoke the Djokovic visa upon arrival in the country last Wednesday.

According to the documents presented before the Court during the weekend, the legal team of the number one of the world argues that the Serbian, 34, received an evaluation by an assessment of the Australia Department in which it was said that complied with the requirements to enter the country without quarantine.

Also that Djokovic gave positive from Covid on December 16 and that two weeks later was recovered so on January 1 he had provided permission to enter Australia without being vaccinated.

The lawyers of the Government of Australia maintain, on the other hand, that Djokovic, known to oppose mandatory immunization against COVID-19, did not receive guarantees that their exemption would be accepted to enter the country without being vaccinated.

The tennis number one in the world landed at Melbourne airport on Wednesday night to participate in the Australian Open, which will be held between January 17 and 30.

Djokovic wants to clarify his situation to be considered in the draw of the Australian tennis Open, who of winning would become his tenth title of that tournament and his twenty-first Grand Slam.

The Government of Australia, which has the possibility of using powers to deport the Tennis Serbian, requires travelers to have the complete guideline against the VACCIN-19 or a valid medical exemption to enter the country.
