Four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka described the Novak Djokovic drama as an "unforunate situation." Djokovic, 34, had his visa cancelled for a second time on Friday. Djokovic got his visa back after winning his appeal in court on Monday but four days later Immigration Minister Alex Hawke exercised his power to revoke the visa of the world No.

1. Osaka knows very well how it feels to be in the centre of attention not because of the actual tennis. "I think it's an unfortunate situation. He's such a great player and it's kind of sad that some people might remember in this way," Osaka said, per Channel News Asia.

"I know what it's like to kind of be in his situation in a place that you're getting asked about that person, to just see comments from other players, it's not the greatest thing. Just trying to keep it positive."

After winning his appeal in court, Djokovic and his team feared Hawke would exercise his power and cancel his visa. “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."
