A few journalists looking into the test certs that he gave the aussies now. Aside from the dodgy story about the tests and not isolating it seems they've done an amateur job in making them look legit and the dates and sample numbers don't tally. Looks like his negative test was done before his positive and the positive was done 26th Dec and then backdated to 16th. Initially the positive test QR code when scanned showed a negative and this was changed to positive shortly after this was discovered. The results website has a timestamp built into the URL address and they forgot to change that and it tallies with the above dates.

It seems likely that he has both lied and committed fraud/forgery here. The Aussie Minister can revoke his visa and has a very good reason to now. It is not a given that he will be banned for 3 years on top of that but he would have good reason to ban him too. It would not be good for the tournament or future tournaments and the future of the AO generally if he does that. But if the media keep pushing this it will be very hard for the Aus govt to ignore.

Don't agree with Navratilova equating being out of a tournament for pulling a hamstring with Novak's situation.

If you're injured you're not potentially going to win the event, if you're fit and ready to play but sent home for political reasons then you're not being allowed to win the event.
(thus the eventual 'winner' is only effectively winning the 'without Djokovic' market. IMHO!)

But the die is almost certainly cast now, we shall see. I just want to see the man play.

While Djokovic could still get the chance to compete in front of "amazing fans", Breen is reporting the Serbian could be removed from Australia before the end of the tournament due to the timing of the chaotic saga.

"There is word the government will cancel Novak Djokovic's visa today – and that will lead to this scenario," Breen wrote on Twitter.

"His legal team will file an injunction, which will be heard tomorrow.

"Djokovic will be drawn to play in the Australian Open as top seed.

"Injunction will be granted. Case heard next week.

If he was thrown out today then going by the timescale Neil Breen's calculated he would play what 3 or 4 matches once the injunction was granted and the case was being heard.

From a betting point of view this would obviously have opened up interesting opportunities for players in Novak's quarter.

However that doesn't seem to be happening.

If he was to lose a match before Hawke makes his decision that would solve the issue of having to throw him out mid tournament.
I'm not suggesting anything that crazy is what they're hoping for here, but at this stage anything is possible.

Djoko prob doing a lot of damage to the antibody status v vaccine status argument.

Looks like he wasn't positive in Dec and won't want to prove it through a test, if he was he could prove he had covid has  antibodies and doesn't need vaxxed and is not a health threat but it won't go down this road.

It has been steered away from natural  resistance from prior infection for a while now with no real proof of antibodies from vaccine either.

They want another level of control via vax passport, just a backdoor ID card.

Odds novak had covid in Dec are very high imo.

He must of been promised it wouldn't get challenged.

Hope he can recover mentally and get back on track as looks like it's over here, what are rules for his travel to France/UK/USA????

To my thinking if you can prove via a test you have antibodies then I don't see why a vaccine is needed,expecially for elite sports people.

Fitter than a butchers dog, the risk from vaxx to risk from covid changes imo, fit people under a certain age should never have been jabbed, kids as well, no way.

Anyway best for punting if novak is either in or out, maybe nae use imo.

Not long to go now.

A couple of fairly relevant updates from Chip Le Grand's report for The Age

Djokovic’s fate, which will be decided by the Federal Court on Sunday, no longer turns on whether he should have been given a medical exemption to play in next week’s Australian Open and whether, on the basis of the documentation he had, he should have been allowed to cross the Australian border.

As far as Immigration Minister Alex Hawke is concerned, those matters are no longer in dispute. In a stunning series of concessions that form part of the government’s high-stakes legal strategy, Mr Hawke accepts that Djokovic has a medical reason for not being vaccinated, came here with a valid exemption and posed a low risk of either getting or passing on the virus while in Australia.
He has abandoned all grounds on which Djokovic’s legal team had amassed a mountain of scientific and other evidence – all of it still untested – on which to defend his right to stay in this country.
/
If it is inclined to take Mr Hawke’s concessions at face value, Tennis Australia may even be tempted to claim vindication.
It can point to the fact that the minister now accepts that the decision of its independent medical panel to award Djokovic a medical exemption on the grounds of a recent COVID-19 infection was consistent with the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation’s guidelines.

If Novak loses he's out of the Aussie Open. From what I understand this being a full court the decision can't be appealed (that's why Team Djoko wanted to move on from just one judge, because those decisions can be appealed). But I don't know if there's some loophole around that or that Hawke can just cancel his visa again.

Serbian president launches extraordinary attack on Australia over Novak Djokovic legal battle - accusing officials of 'Orwellian performances' and Scott Morrison of 'mistreating him due to elections' (Daily Mail Australia)

The president of Serbia has lashed out at Australia after national hero Novak Djokovic lost his 11 day legal battle to stay and compete in the Australian Open.

The unvaccinated tennis star will likely fly home in a few hours, prompting his nation's leader Aleksandar Vucic to accuse Scott Morrison of playing politics ahead of an upcoming election.

Mr Vucic accused Australian government lawyers of 'lying' during 'pointless' court proceedings when they stated less than half of Serbians were vaccinated.

'You saw in the pointless court proceeding how much the prosecution lied,' he said.

'They are simply lying. They say there are fewer than 50 per cent vaccinated people in Serbia and officially the number is 58 per cent.
'Don't forget that's higher than in many European Union countries. That was a pointless argument, but that's possible in Orwellian performances.'

Mr Vucic said Australian athletes would be treated better when they arrived in Serbia for an athletics event in March and 'and we won't mistreat them due to elections.'

The president said he had given Djokovic his full support and told him he 'could not wait' for the tennis star to return to Serbia where he was always welcome.

'To mistreat the best tennis player for 11 days, and on the 11th day hand him the decision made on the first day…' he said, Serbian publication Novosti reports.

'Thank you to the Australian people as I am sure they love Serbs. They think they have humiliated Djokovic, but they have humiliated themselves and he can return to his country and look everyone in the eyes with his head held high.'

Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic echoed the president's sentiments when she said it was 'unbelievable' two different court decisions had been reached in 11 days.

Ms Brnabic said over this time Djokovic had endured both 'physical and psychological mistreatment' and said she welcomed him home.

i haven't been following this as closely as some have, but i'm pretty sure the court ruled his visa was valid did it not?

Hawke accepted

1 - Djokovic had a medical reason for not being vaccinated
2 - Djokovic came here with a valid exemption
3 - Djokovic posed a low risk of either getting or passing on the virus while in Australia

As a result the government case was able to focus pretty much exclusively on

1 - Djokovic's perceived, historical and unanswered views
2 - The effect on the Australian public (including public order & good health)

In the original case the concession by the government's counsel was that the decision to proceed with interview and to cancel visa was unreasonable in the circumstances.

Djokovic was not adjudged to have had fair opportunity to process what was happening and to give a complete response.

'All of the facts and circumstances compel a conclusion, that given fair opportunity to deal with what he wanted to by 8.30, he would have.' Judge kelly

But yet they still chucked him out Laugh

Hawke was being kind in not pursuing the lie on the visa & "medical exemption".

He knew the decision would stick.

The judges even said, they didn't concern themselves with the reasons, only that Hawke's action were legal.

Can someone enlighten me as to what condition an elite athlete would have that mean they can't have the vaccine? my son has congenital heart defects and has had the shots. Glad we can look beyond the circus show now and watch some tennis.
