Djokovic Wins Court Battle To Stay In Australia

There was jubilation among the Serbian-Australian community outside the court when the ruling was announced.

Some 100 supporters of the tennis star have been camped outside the court during the hearing. Before this, they spent days outside the hotel where Djokovic was believed to be staying during his detention.

It’s not yet certain that Djokovic will play in the Australian Open starting on 17 January.

The government’s lawyers have warned that Australia’s immigration minister has the executive power to overturn the court’s decision.

If that happens, the judge warned that Djokovic, currently the world’s number one men’s tennis player, won’t be able to return to Australia for three years.
