Garbine Muguruza on Novak Djokovic visa drama: We all want to move on

Former world No. 1 Garbine Muguruza wants to move on from the Novak Djokovic drama and focus on the tennis. Djokovic, ranked at No. 1 in the world, lost his Australia visa appeal on Sunday. The Djokovic visa drama finally reached its end as the Serb was deported from the country after losing his appeal.

The Djokovic visa drama lasted for 10 days and Muguruza suggested she was getting tired of getting asked about the Djokovic situation. "Yeah, I feel like, every time I'm in the press conference this question gets asked.

I answered in Sydney," Muguruza said, per Sportskeeda. "I think it's taking long, I think we all want to move on and forget whatever it is, just move on and focus on the cool aspects of starting a Slam."

Djokovic released a statement after losing his visa appeal

"I would like to make a brief statement to address the outcome's of today's Court hearing, I will now be taking some time to rest and recuperate, before making any further comments beyond this," Djokovic said in a statement.

"I'm extremely disappointed with the Court ruling to discuss my application for judicial review of the Minister's decision to cancel my visa, which means I cannot stay in Australia and participate in the Australian Open.

"I respect the Court's ruling and I will cooperate with the relevant authorities in relation to my departure from the country. "I'm uncomfortable that the focus of the past weeks has been on me and I hope that we can all now focus on the game and tournament I love, I would like to wish the players, tournament officials, staff, volunteers and fans all the best for the tournament.

"Finally, I would like to thank my family, friends, team, supporters, fans and my fellow Serbians for your continued support. You have all been a great source of strength for me."
