With a new case set to go to court, Novak Djokovic faces a three-year ban from the Australian Open.

Despite winning his appeal against his visa being revoked, NOVAK DJOKOVIC may find himself back in court.

Despite winning his appeal overnight, Novak Djokovic faces a possible three-year ban from the Australian Open.

After a judge overturned the decision to cancel Djokovic’s visa, he is now free to travel to Australia.

The saga, however, is far from over, and the case may be brought back to court.

After his medical exemption to enter the country was revoked, Djokovic had been detained in a quarantine hotel for the past few days.

However, in the early hours of the morning UK time, judge Anthony Kelly ordered the world No. 1’s immediate release.

The Australian Open begins in seven days, giving Djokovic little time to prepare for the year’s first Grand Slam.

There’s still a chance he won’t be competing in Melbourne.

According to The Guardian, Australia’s immigration minister, Alex Hawke, can now intervene personally and cancel Djokovic’s visa on new grounds.

In court, the Australian government stated that this could be the case.

As a result, Djokovic could face another court appearance and a three-year ban from Australia.

Djokovic has nine Australian Open titles, more than any other male player in the open era.

Djokovic’s visa might be revoked, according to government lawyer Christopher Tran.

Hawke would be debating whether or not to use his authority, according to Tran.

“In a sense, the stakes have risen rather than receded,” Judge Kelly said.

Goran Draganic, Djokovic’s lawyer, spoke to Serbian TV during the hearing ahead of the decision to reinstate his visa.

Djokovic was given the proper documents before entering Australia, according to Draganic.

“First and foremost, Novak was granted a regular visa for Australia in November,” he explained.

“On December 30, he obtained a medical exemption.

This exemption is based on the findings of two independent medical panels, the first of which was established by Tennis Australia and the second by the Victorian government.

“Based on the second verification, he could travel.”

Novak receives the formal document from the Department of Home Affairs two days later, allowing him to freely travel to Australia.

“I’m sure the Australian legal team will use serious procedural flaws during his questioning.”
