9 of the funniest things Australians said about the Novak Djokovic saga
The Novak Djokovic saga looks likely to go to a fifth set despite the tennis star’s court win on Monday.
The tennis star left an immigration detention hotel after his Australian visa cancellation was overturned and this is what the man himself had to say on Twitter.
I’m pleased and grateful that the Judge overturned my visa cancellation. Despite all that has happened,I want to stay and try to compete @AustralianOpen
I remain focused on that. I flew here to play at one of the most important events we have in front of the amazing fans. 👇 pic.twitter.com/iJVbMfQ037

While we wait to find out what happens next, enjoy these 9 funniest things Australians have had to say about the whole thing so far.
I can think our border laws are ridiculous and detainment is bad while also thinking the Novak situation is hilarious. I’ve considered the hypocrisy and I’m okay with it.

We should do this the old fashioned way:
To vote to EVICT Novak, text NOVAK to 1999 1010
To vote to SAVE Novak, text YESVAK to 1999 1010

“What more could this man have done?” says the judge in Novak Djokovic’s case, seemingly forgetting that Djokovic could simply have gotten the vaccine.

To conclude, this.
If I was Novak Djokovic, I would simply have taken two doses of the safe and effective COVID-19 vaccinations, then quietly collected my millions of dollars for playing tennis
