Two-time Australian Open quarterfinalist Tennys Sandgren absolutely believes Novak Djokovic has been treated unfairly in Australia. On Friday, Immigration Minister Alex Hawke exercised his power to revoke the visa of Djokovic.
It was a second time that Djokovic's visa was revoked. Djokovic won his appeal in court on Monday and had his visa reinstated but it wasn't the end of the drama. "This is a humiliation ritual at this point An example must be made The docile were feeling uncomfortable," Sandgren tweeted.
While Djokovic was awaiting Hawke's decision, Sandgren made clear how he was feeling about the situation. "If Djokovic is deported after the judge reinstated his visa, it is clear that it is political. I don't think Australia should host a Grand Slam tournament at the moment.
What is the current risk Novak Djokovic poses for public health? Why should we be scared of Novak? Let him play," Sandgren said a few days ago during his appearance on Rumble.
Hawke made the decision on Friday
“Today I exercised my power under section 133C(3) of the Migration Act to cancel the visa held by Mr Novak Djokovic on health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so," Hawke said in a statement on Friday.
"This decision followed orders by the Federal Circuit and Family Court on 10 January 2022, quashing a prior cancellation decision on procedural fairness grounds. "In making this decision, I carefully considered information provided to me by the Department of Home Affairs, the Australian Border For.
and Mr Djokovic. "The Morrison Government is firmly committed to protecting Australia's borders, particularly in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. "I thank the officers of the Department of Horne Affairs and the Australian Border Force who work every day to serve Australia's interests in increasingly challenging operational environments."
