Novak Djokovic will probably only hear on Sunday whether he can stay in Australia. On that day, the federal court will hear the Serbian tennis player’s appeal against the withdrawal of his visa. The Australian Open, the grand slam tournament that Djokovic has already won nine times, starts Monday.

Djokovic was told on Friday that he must still leave the country because he has not been vaccinated against the corona virus and because he has provided incorrect data about where he was and what he did while he tested positive for the virus. Immigration Minister Alex Hawke used his power to revoke the visa of the world’s No. 1.

That happened just days after a Melbourne judge decided to approve the Serb’s medical exemption and release him from the detention center where the tennis player was required to remain after his arrival in Australia. Djokovic wants to participate in Melbourne and is looking for his tenth title in the Australian Open.

Djokovic is allowed to tell his story again at customs on Saturday morning Australian time and then has to be remanded to so-called detention. He is allowed to spend time with his lawyers preparing his appeal. The trial is Sunday.
