According to the report, the Serbian tennis star is likely to be released immediately following the decision of the Australian court. At the same time, the public prosecutor said that Novak Djokovic is now free and can leave Australia whenever he wants. An Australian judge has ruled that tennis superstar Novak Djokovic should be released from immigration custody because the government’s decision to revoke the tennis star’s visa to enter the country was “unreasonable.” What’s more, immigration officials still have the power to revoke their visas.

The decision gives the world number one a chance to win a record 21st Grand Slam title at the Australian Open. On January 6, 2022, Australia revoked the visa of world number one Djokovic, a world number one player, for violating the Covid-19 Protocols (SOPs). He arrived in Melbourne to participate in the Australian Open tennis tournament. Airport authorities barred the Serbian tennis star from vaccination and on the wrong visa while deporting Djokovic.
