Boris Becker compares Novak Djokovic to Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Boris Becker claims that Novak Djokovic is “not the same as Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.”

After having his visa revoked at Melbourne Airport, Novak Djokovic is currently being held in a Government detention hotel in Victoria.

According to his former coach, Novak Djokovic “isn’t the most popular boy” and is criticized for upsetting Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Boris Becker, who teamed up with the Serbian in 2014 and worked with him for three seasons, helped him win six Grand Slam titles and 14 Masters 1000 event wins.

Two of those titles were won at the Australian Open, the same tournament that has catapulted Djokovic into the spotlight after a bizarre series of events this week.

After months of speculation about his eligibility to play in Melbourne, with tournament organizers requiring players to be vaccinated against Covid-10 in order to compete, the world no. 1 announced this week via Instagram that he had qualified for a medical exemption and would be competing.

Australian politicians were outraged, and Prime Minister Scott Morrison warned the 34-year-old that he would have to prove the validity of his exemption once he arrived in the country.

Djokovic arrived at Melbourne Airport on Wednesday only to have his visa revoked by border officials, who then held him in isolation for several hours and interrogated him.

After it was announced that he would be deported from Australia on Thursday, his legal team sought an injunction in an attempt to overturn the decision.

Djokovic is currently being held in a Government detention hotel in Carlton, where he will be held until the outcome of his appeal is known, which is expected to be Monday.

Sympathy for the 20-time Grand Slam champion has been scarce, with Nadal publicly claiming that his opponent put himself in this situation by refusing to be vaccinated.

There has also been plenty of venom from tennis fans who have long struggled to warm up to Djokovic.

However, Becker, 54, claims that Djokovic is a one-of-a-kind figure who has sparked controversy by questioning Federer and Nadal’s previous established order.

“It’s important to remember that this is a unique and special person who overcame adversity on his way to the top.”

He isn’t the same as Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal, and he has a long way to go.
