Novak Djokovic LIVE UPDATES: Visa revoked AGAIN, court appearance and three-year ban LATEST, Australian Open draw


Novak pals ‘afraid’ to speak out

Illya Marchenko, a Ukrainian tennis player, claims that players are afraid of losing their visas if they support Novak Djokovic.

Djokovic’s deportation appeal could be heard tomorrow, just days before the Australian Open.

After winning an appeal when his visa was cancelled for the first time, fellow 34-year-old Marchenko believes the defending champ is a victim of politics.

“‘Rules are rules,’ they say, only to lose in their own court,” he wrote on Facebook. Then figure out a way to get his visa revoked regardless.

“In the first place, what rules were they referring to?” Elections are coming up soon, in case you forgot. “Remain calm.”

He also hopes that others will speak out in support of Djokovic, the Serbian legend.

“I’m not in Australia anymore, so I can,” he explained. Others are simply afraid of having their visas revoked” – along with a crying-while-laughing emoji.
