Novak Djokovic: Australia denies tennis star would be given exemption

News Correspondent

In just a few hours time Novak Djokovic faces the latest round in his Australian campaign, not a date at the Rod Laver Arena, but an immigration appeal hearing at Australia’s Federal Court.

The Serb is appealing a decision by the Australian Government to deport him. His lawyers argue that World’s Number One had a vaccine exemption, because he had been infected with Covid in December. But his argument was rejected by Government lawyers, who lost a bid to delay the hearing.
