Despite claims to the contrary, Novak Djokovic was adamant that he did not try to enter Australia illegally. “That was established in court, and as a result, I would never set foot in a nation without prior authorization.
I’d want to return to Australia someday. The finest Grand Slam results of my career were achieved in Australia. For the sake of both my personal and professional interests, I am hoping that January will work out for me.
The United States is where I want to go, as well as somewhere else I can play.”
Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic is now in danger of missing both the US Open and the Australian Open after winning his eighth Wimbledon crown on Sunday night.
“I’m a professional tennis player, I don’t get involved in politics or anything because that doesn’t interest me,” he explained.

On Talk TV’s “Plank of the Week,” British writer and politician Claire Fox lauded Novak Djokovic.

“In my opinion, he has the right to his opinion, but who cares? His body is not mine. Then then, he didn’t even raise a ruckus over it. He advocated for his side of the argument. Asked why he gave up major tournaments for this, he responds, “because I have a set of core values.”
How wonderful it is that he’s not just a talented and principled tennis player, but also one of the best in the world at his sport “he went on to say.
