Coach: Ill treatment will affect Novak Djokovic's mental and physical condition

Coach Radmilo Armenulic thinks the treatment Novak Djokovic received in Australia will affect the mental and physical condition of the world No. 1. During his 10 days in Australia, Djokovic was detained at an immigration hotel and had his visa revoked twice.

"Novak is extremely ill-treated, so much so that it will affect his mental and physical condition. Especially the next tournaments are in danger. I'm not very optimistic. I don't know what will happen tonight, but it would be best for Novak to pack up and to return home.

I think that is the only right decision," Armenulic told Tanjug.

Serbian President came to the defence of Djokovic

After Immigration Minister Alex Hawke cancelled the visa of Djokovic, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic asked Australian Prime Scott Morrison why they were torturing Djokovic.

"If you wanted to forbid Novak Djokovic to win the [Australian Open] trophy for the 10th time, why didn't you return him immediately, why didn't you tell him that it was impossible to get a visa?" Vucic asked in the clip, as quoted on ABC.

"Why do you mistreat him, why do you torture him, as well as his family and [a] nation that is free and proud? "Is all this necessary to win the elections and please your public? "A president of a small country has appeared who has the courage to say that to one great prime minister of a large country — I can because I'm telling the truth and you know I'm telling the truth."

Vucic couldn't believe the federal government revoked Djokovic's visa after he won his case in court. "They often preach to us about the rule of law," Vucic added. "You can imagine what it would look like if a minister in Serbia annulled court decisions, "They showed us what an independent judiciary looks like, but they also showed us what an irrelevant judiciary looks like, because all the power there is in the hands of the executive."
