Coach Marian Vajda has shared the message of support to world No. 1 Novak Djokovic. On Tuesday, Djokovic announced he was granted a medical exemption for the Australian Open. Djokovic landed in Australia on January 5 and then he was detained at the Melbourne Airport for nine hours before being told his visa was cancelled.
Djokovic appealed the decision and was transported to an immigration hotel, where he is isolated. "Only the laws and the human brain are limited, but the free human soul and it’s manifestation of freedom, unity and love is unlimited.
Champ we stand by you," Vajda said in an Instagram post.
Djokovic's wife also shared a message
Djokovic's wife, Jelena, is trying to keep positive spirits as she prays for the positive outcome. "It's Christmas today for us, my wishes are for everyone to be healthy, happy, safe and together with families.
We wish we were all together today, but my consolation is that at least we are healthy. And we will grow from this experience," Jelena said. "Thank you dear people, all around the world for using your voice to send love to my husband.
I'm taking a deep breath to calm down and find gratitude (and understanding) in this moment for all that is happening." Meanwhile, Djokovic's brother, Djordje, blasted the Australian authorities for treating the world No.
1 like a "criminal." “He was taken to a migrant hotel to a dirty room without any belongings, which he was told would be returned to him upon his return to Europe,” Djokovic's brother, Djordje, said, per Gaspar Ribeiro Lanca.
“He was treated like a criminal while he is a healthy and decent man and a sportsman who has not endangered anyone’s life and has not committed any federal or legal offence”. It remains to be seen if Djokovic will be allowed to play the Australian Open.
