NFL great Tom Brady wished good luck to world No. 1 Novak Djokovic after the judge decided to reinstate his visa. Djokovic's visa was cancelled upon his arrival to Australia but the Serb appealed and won his case in court on Monday.
After getting his visa reinstated, Djokovic shared a message on Instagram. "I am pleased and grateful that the Judge overturned my visa cancellation. Despite all that has happened in the past week, I want to stay and to try to compete at the Australian Open.
I remain focused on that. I flew here to play at one of the most important events we have in front of the amazing fans. For now I cannot say more but THANK YOU for standing with me through all this and encouraging me to stay strong," Djokovic said in an Instagram post.
Brady happy for Djokovic
Brady, a seven-time Super Bowl champion, is considered by many as the greatest American football player ever. "Good luck," Brady commented on Djokovic's post. Djokovic, a 20-time Grand Slam champion, has a good relationship with Brady.
“I was close with Kobe Bryant, as well as Monica Seles, Andre Agassi and Boris Becker, who were my coaches, and Pete Sampras. I have spoken often with them, and I speak with Tom Brady frequently about training and recovery," Djokovic said in November.
Djokovic, who is considered by some as the greatest tennis player ever, is always open to speaking athletes from different sports and learning from them. “I make an effort to make use of the opportunity to share something with all sportsmen and sportswomen, things that aided me or hindered me, and I ask questions, especially to those who have reached the pinnacle of their sport," Djokovic added.
Djokovic is a record nine-time Australian Open and he came to Australia hoping to win a record 21st Grand Slam title.
