If Hawke decided to cancel Djokovic's, visa, the Australian Border officials dressed in dark uniforms and carrying guns would turn up and took Djokovic. “Let‘s assume the Minister does proceed to cancel Mr Djokovic’s visa,” he continued.
“He would then have the cancellation notice taken by Australian Border Force, who usually dress in very, very dark uniforms and often carry guns, turning up to Mr Djokovic’s or on the tennis court, taking Mr Djokovic away from the tennis court, most likely in the glare of the world‘s media”.

"We celebrate the victory of our son, who has done nothing wrong, has not broken any law and has been harassed. He fought vs. the system because he knows he had a valid visa," Dijana said,. "It was so difficult at some moments.
At some point he didn't have his mobile phone, we didn't know if he was ill or so. Every mother in the word can understand what I mean. "He couldn't see the people dancing and singing but he could hear them and it helped him. It's the biggest win of his career, bigger than any Grand Slam."
