Novak Djokovic after receiving a medical exemption flew down to Melbourne. However, world No.1 was denied entry into Australia due to a visa mix-up.

Novak Djokovic detained at the Melbourne Airport
As suggested by some of the experts the Novak Djokovic’s medical exemption might be tested by the border police at the Melbourne airport, and that is what happened.
The world No.1 after reaching Australia this afternoon was questioned about his medical exemption by the border police. According to some of the experts, Djokovic could be denied to enter Australia if his medical exemption will be based on contacting Covid-19 in the past 6 months.
However, Novak Djokovic was being questioned for nearly 2 hours by the Border Police. After which, Djokovic’s dad confirmed that Djokovic has been detained at the Melbourne Airport after being inquired about his medical exemption by the border police.
He has been isolated in a room with two police officers and is being denied to speak with anybody else. His mobile phone has also been taken from him, leaving him with no option to contact anyone. It seems that there were some major loopholes in Djokovic’s documents, which is why the Serb has been detained until the authorities come to a conclusion.
However, with the passage of time the chances of Djokovic participating in the Australian Open become lesser and lesser. He might be allowed to play or might be sent back home from the airport itself. Nevertheless, we hope that Djokovic’s misery comes to an end as soon as possible.
