Novak Djokovic's lawyers are appealing to a federal court in Australia, to try to overturn a Government decision, to cancel his visa for a second time over covid rules.
If they fail, the world number 1, who isn't vaccinated is due to be detained tomorrow and deported.
SOT, Aleksandar Vucic, President of Serbia (Serbian): "They think that they humiliated Djokovic with this 10-day harassment, but they humiliated themselves and Djokovic can return to his country with his head held high and look everyone in the eyes."
SOT, Aleksandar Vucic, President of Serbia (Serbian): "They think that they expelled some principles and only showed that they did not have any principles. That you are harassing the world's best tennis player for 10 or 11 days, so that on the 10th, 11th day you handed him a decision that you knew would be handed to him on the first day. And let me repeat: if you had said that someone who has not been vaccinated cannot enter, Novak Djokovic would either not have come or would have been vaccinated. Thus, you left the possibility for medical exceptions and he came and did everything in accordance with that, and then the harassment of unprecedented proportions began. And in terms of media lynching, literally hunting for witches of one person, one country, because, I guess, they wanted to show Novak how the World Order works, literally hunting for witches and how they can do it against everyone."
SOT, Aleksandar Vucic, President of Serbia (Serbian): "We will welcome Australian athletes in March in a different way, in an incomparably better way, we will not, because of the political elections, harass them and show strength over them or anything like that. They are coming to the athletics championship and we will show that we are better than the Australian government, and I thank the Australian people, because I am sure they love the Serbian people as much as we respect the Australian people."
