Novak Djokovic’s visa has been cancelled by Australia’s immigration minister Alex Hawkes, casting further doubt over his participation in the first grand slam of the year, which begins on Monday (January 17). Hawke said he cancelled the visa on ‘health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so’.
The World No. 1 tennis star’s legal team has indicated they intend to file an injunction against the minister’s decision in a bid to allow him to stay and play in the Australian Open.
