    Now in Australia, unvaccinated people are free to enter the country since all mandates have been rolled back months ago.

    But Novak Djokovic is not allowed to enter since he received an automatic 3 year ban from entering Australia. Now he wants to play in Australian open again in January but Aus tells him to fuck off and come back again in 2.5 years. Now he has hired an immigration lawyer to see if he can appeal and enter in January.

    The saga a while back made everyone involved look terrible, but this latest twist is great. Win stupid prizes for being an obnoxious homeopathy-promoting dickhead.

    Hope this sticks.

    I don't know, seems kind of petty to me. Sure, kick him out last year, don't let him play, 3-year ban, over the top due to the fact that he had been told he had some kind of exemption. Even the court agreed with him on this procedural issue. I don't like him, also don't care about tennis, but I think this just makes Australia look bad.

    Massive U Turn, he's got a visa to play next year LOL

    news confirmed by Australia's immigration minister, who said he "personally" intervened to ensure the former world No 1 would be granted entry.

    This looks a fair result for his situation, and the Aussies look good for being strict but fair.

    Seriously fuck this guy, he's everything that's wrong with pro athletes.

    Are the antivax themes still attracting your attention these days?

    No, I just look at whatever topics are the latest. I actually agreed with their original decision if it didn’t mean a ban given the original confusion.

    Are you still very concerned with people’s choices?

    When they make choices that puts them above everyone else, yes.

    When their choices impact my ability to make my own, yes.

    When they cannot make a reasoned, sane choice while in custody of a minor who can't make the choice for themselves, yes.
