Djordje Djokovic was asked whether his brother Novak regrets not getting vaccinated before the Australian Open. Djokovic's visa was cancelled upon his arrival to Australian but the judge reinstated it on Monday. Djokovic flew to Australia after he was granted a medical exemption and thought he would have no problems entering the country.
"Novak has been called many names in many different press and countries around the world. But Novak is only fighting for the liberty of choice. And that's all I'm gonna say," Djordje said.

Djordje grateful to all the Djokovic supporters
"Thank you to people all over the world, people have risen in defence of Novak, we have seen the footage in front of the detention centre.
Also, thank you to Judge Kelly, who was thorough and neutral," Djordje said, per Sasa Ozmo. "I am sure judicial system of Australia was under enormous pressure, the whole world was watching. "Novak is free, he practiced on the courts.
He went there to chase another title, with the best possible intent and all the documentation." Djokovic's father, Srdjan, was also thrilled after his son's visa was reinstated. "Thank you to everyone in the world that has been fighting for the freedom of speech.
Various things have happened, and it's been difficult but he's extremely strong mentally. He always tried to help, kept a good behaviour," Srdjan said, per Tennis Majors. "The last game have been played the past 5 days.
Let him now play the game he's the best in the world at. They took away his rights. They attempted to persuade him to sign his visa revocation. He refused to because there was no reason. "He was alone with them for several hours, without a phone.
He finally had his phone back and could contact his legal team who made a very good work. We respect the law and rules of every country where we go."
