Most other players have been in Aus for weeks, competing in lead up events etc. Dickhead Djokovic pulled out of them all, even his own Serbian teammates didnt know if he would be playing for Serbia or not last week in the ATP tournament in Sydney. In the end, he was a no show.
Now very last minute he announces on twitter he's coming to Melbourne with an exemption and he is literally at the airport when posting.
One thing Australian's are really pissed off about, if he really values his medical privacy, then why did he say at all he has an exemption? There is no requirement to say this. He could have just said "Im coming to Aus!" and left it at that. To give out that he has an exemption, but then not state what the exemption is, this kind of "selective privacy" is just bullshit and taunting and Australians can see right through it and wont take it. We dont care he's the number one tennis player in the world, if you have been granted a genuine medical exemption to come to Australia, then show a bit of grace and thanks, be a bit humble about it.
Remember this is the same anti-vaxxer dickhead that organised tennis tournaments and parties that became superspreader events during 2020 when the world was locked down. This guy has always been an arsehole even way before COVID. So yeah maybe there is a screw up or you can call government incompetent or whatever, but this is normal and governments all over the world are incompetent. You see families and regular people getting screwed like this every day, its so nice to see it happen to the worlds biggest dickhead who thinks just because he's a good tennis player he can do what it wants.
The only thing I am a bit dissapointed about now, I was looking forward to watching him get booed and heckled by Australians for his entire trip down under. Watching the loud boos in the stadium, the umpire trying to calm the crowd down before every ball he serves. That would have been epic to see. Never mind.
I'm not in that camp.
Take away your expectation that he must be vaccinated and then go through your reported chain of events again and see what you're left with.
