Visa revoked again, Djokovic faces deportation
Breaking news from down under. The Associated Press reports that tennis star Novak Djokovic's immigration saga continues. He now
" faces deportation again after the Australian government revoked his visa for a second time, the latest twist in the ongoing saga over whether the No. 1-ranked tennis player will be allowed to compete in the Australian Open despite being unvaccinated for COVID-19.
Immigration Minister Alex Hawke said . . . he used his ministerial discretion to cancel [Djokovic's] visa on public interest grounds — just three days before play begins at the Australian Open, where Djokovic has won a record nine of his 20 Grand Slam titles."
The case is not over and Djokovic is expected to appeal the visa revocation.
