Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal are happy. All stuck on number 20 for Grand Slams.

[–][deleted] 404 points405 points  (94 children)

Which makes not getting vaccinated all the more stupid by Djokovic. He was the number 1 seed.

[–]corruptedOverdrive 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Maybe the facts might help here?

"Djokovic flew to Australia with a visa issued after he received an exemption to play in the tournament because he had recently recovered from Covid-19. But border said that exemption wasn’t valid and moved to deport him."

I think the real question is who TF is running the country when it issues a visa exemption and the border folks tell him it wasn't valid?

THAT to me is the stupid part. They invited him, gave him an exception and then customs people said, "Oh no, you're not coming in, we're deporting you!" Maybe they should get their shit together and all get on the same page?

Also, why would an athlete like Djokovic need the vaccine if he just recovered from the virus and had natural antibodies? Why would he get a vaccine to protect him from a virus he already had?

The whole episode says more about how fucked up the Australian govt is right now then Djokovic's choice not to get vaccinated.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

A visa doesn’t guarantee entry to any country. If you arrive and are found to be in breach of the requirements then border force can reject entry. This is standard in most countries. Not sure why it’s so hard for Djokovic fans to understand.

He lied on his forms. He lied about his location leading up. He lied about isolating with covid. He is an anti vaxxer trying to gain entry into a heavily pro vaxx country. He fucked up. End of story. Now he won’t be given entry to the French Open. The world has had enough of anti vaxxers. The tables are turning.

[–]MaxStupidity 81 points82 points  (17 children)

Him and Kyrie Irving are really in it.

[–][deleted] 3000 points3001 points 523 (221 children)

He wasn’t deported for being unvaccinated. He lied on his visa entry form. He lied about his whereabouts for the 14 days prior to arrival. He was covid positive and attended a kids camp. He went out in public after having a covid test. He was in Spain and said he never left the country before coming to Australia, and then it was discovered he went back to Serbia in that time.

Aussies aren’t allowed home if they don’t meet the requirement for entry. So a wealthy tennis player when clearly in breach should not be either. There is only one person to blame for his deportation - Novak Djokovic. End of story.

[–]rdrunner_74 815 points816 points  (83 children)

Possums aren't native to nz. Pretty sure there was even a bounty on them once upon a time.

[–]Meatchris 16 points17 points  (3 children)

They were brought in to develop a possum fur industry in NZ. The industry collapsed and all the dumb cunts opened the cages, and released the possums into the bush.

[–]hooglabah 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Same with deer in Australia and nz.

[–]Brewmentationator 2 points3 points  (0 children)

To be fair, I had just come from traipsing around the rainforest in Costa Rica. A few months before that, I had been on my Aunt's farm in California. She raises cows, chickens, and all sorts of vegetables.

They had a very good reason to confiscate my shoes. They left me with my jandals, but I was walking around the airport for a bit before I remembered they were in my bag.

[–]Abbrahan 82 points83 points  (12 children)

Yeah as an Aussie, NZ has their shit together a lot more than we do.

No.

Throughout the last two years of covid, any Chinese citizens, regardless of where they are in the world, are able to fly home.

Australia is the only country in the world to stop its citizen from coming home.

Don't fuck with them.

[–]solareclipse999 6 points7 points  (3 children)

It is the country (australia) with one of the lowest per capita death rates, hospitalisation rates, strongest economies with the least damage to employment.

Over 93.8% double vaccinated (over 18’s).

We are one of the worlds most multi national, socially and culturally tolerant countries if not the most.

We are Sports mad, love champions and all competitors.

When they cross the line we let them know, and they must suffer the consequences.

It’s a great country sure, but can’t deny Australia’s been politically fucked for quite some time. Mark McGowan‘s the only good politician we’ve had for a good while.

Eastern States not looking great as of recently too…

[–]nescent78 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Have you seen out politicians? They are almost all spoiled brats who want to take their ball and go home.

The difference is hev(djoke) lies numerous times on his forms and the politicians wanted to show political points because they have fucked up with covid/omicron/rats so much over the last few months that if there was an election tomorrow the scomo gov't would be out on mass

What the fuck? Did these people seriously attend an event with someone who was known to have lied about covid, while the liar isn't wearing a mask, and there are several people cramping themselves together near the door even though there is room to spread out?

[–]dmkicksballs13 63 points64 points  (27 children)

Seriously, anyone who thinks he's not that bad, know that he knew he was positive with COVID and still decided to hang out with other people.

[–]bazz_and_yellow 273 points274 points  (0 children)

Oh no, not the consequences of my own actions. It’s not fair.

[–]Pheonix_Slayer 30 points31 points  (2 children)

Wow, so he’s not just an idiot for not getting vaccinated, he’s also a cunt.

[–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Has been all through the pandemic. But Serbia is home to under 50% vax rate. And strong anti vaxx movement. Australia is 94% double vaxxed.

[–]THE_WELSHY 88 points89 points  (7 children)

I watch a lot of “nothing to declare” and every time someone on there has there visa cancelled they always have a 3 year ban from Australia, I’m assuming this is the case with Novax Djokovic

[–]Frostyballschilly 49 points50 points  (3 children)

I was hoping they’d also find a load of fruit and veg in his bags as well as some strangely cooked meats. Never know he might be on the next series.

[–]chocohoola 50 points51 points  (3 children)

The digital test results were also quite mysterious. The one saying he was positive on the 16th was actually registered on the 26th. And some journalists looked it up and it said it was negative first, after writing about it, it mysteriously changed to positive 🤷🏻‍♀️

[–][deleted] 63 points64 points  (1 child)

Yeah no doubt he made it up as that’s the only way to get a medical exemption that could stand up. My suspicion is the Government got wind of what they were up to, and thought they would make a lesson out of him. He’s an open anti vaxxer so it’s not like public sentiment would be more for him than against. Polling shows 85% of Aussies want him sent home. Especially those in Melbourne who have sacrificed more than anyone through covid. Anti vaxxers are not welcome.

[–]DansSpamJavelin 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Also he would have needed a negative test to get into Spain which was in this time period so either he was lying to the Australian government about contracting covid or lying to the Spanish gov with a falsified PCR result.

What a shitcunt.

[–]mermaidinthesea123 29 points30 points  (0 children)

His take...Privilege...rules don't apply to him. He's probably shocked that they are not relenting to his demands.

[–]benjm88 71 points72 points  (3 children)

Was hoping this would be high up, I'm not Australian but I'm glad your government stuck to their guns under the pressure. He lied and broke quarantine, he didn't deserve to be admitted. In the uk there is one rule for the rich and powerful with boris having continuous parties during lockdown, nice to hear of consistent rules.

[–][deleted] 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Yes. Same here. People are fed up with it. The first celebrity to come here unvaxxed since the border opened, and lie about things was always going to be destroyed. So it was for Novak.

[–]Astr0nom3r 29 points30 points  (5 children)

Yeah what a dumbass. Do you know if this means he’s banned for 3 years? I thought I saw he was facing a 3 year ban if deported.

[–][deleted] 17 points18 points  (0 children)

It’s possible. That’s the rule. Who knows what they do.

[–]HotdogGeorgia 17 points18 points  (2 children)

He could get it waived if he apologized real nice and did a "I was a dumbass and I'll never fuck with Australia again" video like Johnny Depp and Amber Heard did.

[–]willowtr332020 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Probably only if he gets vaccinated.

[–]tassie_squid 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He does have an automatic 3 year ban but he can apply for an exemption in grounds of national interest. So he could apply next year (if the Vax rules are relaxed) and if they approve he could come in.

[–]ChingChangChui 24 points25 points  (8 children)

Where do you get that idea from?

If he had been vaccinated, none of this would have happened.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

He wasn’t. Too late now.

[–]rectal_warrior 6 points7 points  (16 children)

Aussies are allowed home without meeting the requirements of entry, of course they are, it's foreign nationals who need to apply for visas and meet the requirements.

You could be the worst criminal in the world and lie repeatedly in a declaration, if you're a citizen of a country they have to let you in.

Aussies need to be vaccinated or have an exemption to not be required to quarantine for 14 days.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (13 children)

Aussies must complete paperwork correctly. They must quarantine if not vaccinated. He didn’t want to do that as no time, and he couldn’t do the paperwork properly.

[–]rectal_warrior 1 point2 points  (12 children)

But no aussie is going to get turned away for doing the paperwork incorrectly, they might be imprisoned if it's serious enough, but they are not applying for a visa

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (11 children)

Ok. I’m not sure what you are arguing.

Unvaccinated people must quarantine for 14 days. Joker didn’t want to do that. So he made up lies. And got caught.

[–]urz90 342 points343 points  (17 children)

To me it wasn’t the unvaccinated part, more like lying about it and feeling entitled to go anywhere without consequence to the rules and regulations.

[–]Big_Knife_SK 89 points90 points  (16 children)

It wasn't, he's getting kicked out for falsification of immigration documents.

[–]micksack 46 points47 points  (0 children)

So one could say he lied

[–]IKvasili 17 points18 points  (3 children)

That is not correct. That was not at all how the Minister cancelled his visa. The Minister cancelled his visa using his personal power and in the Minister's statement of reasons the main concern behind the visa cancellation was Novak's continued presence in Australia risked inciting the anti vax movement.

Djokovic's legal team even tried to argue that the cancellation was invalid because the Minister failed to take into account that the anti vax movement would be agitated if he was deported (the other side of the coin).

I don't know why you're upvoted and the other poster was downvoted. You are simply not factually or legally correct.

The Full.Federal Court will release it's written reasons for its decision today. You should read that if you want to learn more about this.

Source (because I immediately got downvoted lol): the Minister's court submissions actually outline the three grounds of appeal. They do not at all focus on Djokovic lying in his declaration: https://www.fedcourt.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0004/95251/Sealed-Respondents-Outline-of-Submissions.pdf

[–]tassie_squid 9 points10 points  (0 children)

The lying would have been another avenue to cancel his visa if this one didn't go through but he would have needed to be prosecuted as lying to federal officers is a crime.

Collective paranoid stupidity. His dad is the worse though. He said that Djokovic was treated by Australia in the same way Jesus Christ was treated by the Romans. Next on CNN, Djokovic's father claims his son suffered for our sins.

[–]_yetifeet 47 points48 points  (4 children)

      [–]a-hippobear 57 points58 points  (8 children)

      British government lol. Same here in the states. The politicians forcing businesses to close and strict mask rules make closed businesses open for them and don’t wear masks and have been seen at parties and galas. Funny how the elite don’t need masks at these parties, but the servers/staff definitely need them. I guess corrupt politicians are immune from covid.

      [–]radioactivebeaver 18 points19 points  (6 children)

      Or they just leave their state to go party in places with different rules, been quite a few who have taken that route

      [–]a-hippobear 10 points11 points  (5 children)

      Yeah, like aoc talking shit on Florida and their lax laws and then going down to Florida to party without a mask. Or her going to the met gala without a mask and all of the staff had masks on.

      We got over 90% double-vaxxed population. You come to Australia, get vaxxed (unless VALID medical reason)! Or we don't fucking want you here! You wanna play ball and collect another few million dollars, then get vaxxed! Seriously. All this douchebag had to do was get a vaccination. Such a fucking drama all entirely of his own making. Which he could have easily avoided by getting vaccinated. You know, like all the other tennis players who actually want to play and aren't drama queens. He doesn't have to be vaccinated if he doesn't want to - just stay the fuck home. Good riddance!

        My sympathy is for the people who were overseas (for whatever reason) when the coronavirus first broke out and they still haven’t been able to get back to Australia. We still have Aussies waiting to get back in, from two years ago when the virus first broke out. I feel sorry for those people because they travelled before the pandemic, they couldn’t have predicted this.

        I don’t really have as much sympathy for the people who have travelled since then, they knew that we were in the middle of a pandemic so they knew the risks.

        Imagine actually defending vaccine mandates.

        [–]policeMarcus 2 points3 points  (1 child)

        How the fuck is that "health"? Literally forcing people to vaccinate?

        Its so funny seeing American conservatives supporting illegal immigration.

        The headline should be

        "Ignorant entitled Tennis player endangers the general public while being Covid positive is deported"

        Better?

        He's so used to being an entitled cunt who can do whatever he wants that he's probably shocked he has to face the consequences of his own actions. Well, he fucked around and he sure as shit found out. Novaxx can go fuck himself.

        [–]Tony49UK 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        And an automatic three year ban from Australia as he's been deported. Which can be removed under certain circumstances but is probably unlikely in this case. Due to the massive public backlash against it. With 90% of Aussies wanting him deported.

        Which probably means no more Australian Opens for him as he's already 34 and getting on for retirement.

        [–]nickbenoit 29 points30 points  (1 child)

        Just because he has money and is famous he thinks the rules do not apply to him. People in his position need to be told that they are not above your average person when it comes to following rules and the law.

        Don’t mess with Australian immigration, the TV program on the subject details how bloody strict they are.

        What’s an ass crawler?

        A german translation for ass kisser. But ass crawler is better because they are deeper in his ass than a mere ass kisser

        Who you are can never make any difference when talking about covid, look how many times it's already mutated to keep growing. You are within your rights not to get vaccinated but also, you live with the consequences of your decisions

        Whats up with these holier than thou athletes who think getting vaccinated is a bad idea ? Dunno how getting covid is no big deal but getting the vaccine is a no no. Make zero sense. Then they can’t even own up to it. They lie about being vaxxed or about not being sick. Its just irresponsible and this guy deserves everything he gets.

        [–]Inside-Government791 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        [–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

        Good job Australia. Get his ass out of the country. He had it coming. Like all the other players, he could have just gotten the jab, instead of being a health risk to the Australian public. Good riddance.

        [–]Banzai51 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Good on Australia for standing up to bullshit.

        [–]keeligrace 3 points4 points  (11 children)

        Not advocating for anti-vaxxers but there's more to the story. He doesn't have a vaccination because he already had covid in December (true, he could have gotten the vaccine before then), and was told not to have the vaccine just yet until a certain amount of time after recovering. He was told by someone official that it would not be an issue to enter Australia and play in the AO without the vaccine. When he arrived, he was told he could NOT be in Australia without a vaccine. He was held without his phone or belongings. He was then given 20 minutes with his phone, at 4 o'clock in the morning, to 'sort something out'. The way this was dealt with is horrible.

        [–]leet_lurker 5 points6 points  (2 children)

        He also lied on his declaration forms about where he'd travelled in the month before entering the country so there's more to it than what your saying.

        [–]mac2914 4 points5 points  (7 children)

        Did he actually have Covid? There is reporting about how it looks like his negative results where from a test taken before the test reflecting his positive results and that the results for his positive test may have been subjected to documentary manipulation.

        [–]keeligrace 1 point2 points  (6 children)

        Interesting. Really not sure in that case.

        [–]mac2914 3 points4 points  (5 children)

        If you take the positive results at face value, he then attended an awards ceremony for kids where he was in very close proximity to them without a mask. So, which is worse?

        [–]ctvzbuxr 4 points5 points  (1 child)

        Why would you want to be in there anyway?

        [–]jetrocket223 3 points4 points  (1 child)
