Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray thinks the while Novak Djokovic situation is not good for tennis nor anyone involved in it. Djokovic, a record nine-time Australian Open champion, had his visa cancelled by the Australian Border Force.
Djokovic was then transported to an immigration hotel, where he is awaiting for his visa court hearing. “I think everyone is shocked by it [the circumstances] to be honest," Murray said, per TalkSport. “I’m going to say two things on it just now.
The first thing is that I hope that Novak is OK. I know him well, and I’ve always had a good relationship with him and I hope that he’s OK. “The second thing I’ll say on it … it’s really not good for tennis at all, and I don’t think it’s good for anyone involved.
“I think it’s really bad”.
Murray didn't want to comment further
The whole Djokovic situation is far from resolving as there is a lot of blaming going around. Murray won't comment further until he gets all the facts on the situation.
“What I would like to do right now is just wait for all of the facts to come out about what’s happened, because every day something new is coming out and we’re hearing new information all of the time,” Murray added.
“[I need to] wait and hear exactly what the situation is before commenting on it further, because again I don’t think it’s fair because some of it is speculation. “Some stuff has come out that really doesn’t look good, either.
I want to hear all the facts first before giving all of my thoughts on it”. Meanwhile, Murray is set for a Sydney debut. Murray kicked off his 2022 season at the Melbourne Summer Set, where he suffered a shock loss to Facundo Bagnis in his opener. Murray will now be hoping to bounce back in Sydney.
