God bless Australia 🇦🇺... Good decision. Next time, respect the rules even if you've got the money and fame. Once more, God bless Australia. The U.K. wouldn’t have the tennis ‘balls’ to see this through. Will welcome this hypocrite with open arms when it comes to Wimbledon. We are a walkover in this country!!

stevescott_itv Well done Australia for not putting up with someone rich&famous who broke the rules ,laws. Novak you are a liar&risked others , should face a band..Wheres your supporters&family now? Novak do you have no shame ? You're out! Good. If you know the rules and try to bend / break / disregard them then you should pay the penalty. How would he like it if when playing a game someone kept being allowed to break the rules and he wasn’t ?

Good should be same for everyone if they brought in vaccination passport this wouldn't have happened and then no drama no vax no holiday, big event etc If you are unvaccinated then Australia has the right to deport, doesn’t matter if you’re a top tennis player Nigel_Farage Good. Novax no play Elk clearly he must have known the Australian requirements so why does he just not get the vaccine will be the same in all other countries to so in your own hands 🤷🏼

Well I’m disappointed in his lack of concern for other countries guidelines, I’m disappointed in his lack of concern for those he might have infected, I’m disappointed in his arrogance that rules and guidelines don’t apply to him…

lucrezianews Novak Djokovic is the first player to be knocked out of a grand slam tournament after missing only 2 shots. NovaxDjokovic Serves him right. 'Extremely disappointed because he could not manipulate the Laws'. Good riddance! Aussies will not be told what to do, I wish our country would take their stance.

Hes on is way home because his visa is like boomerang Maybe your get vaccinated now. Liamjacko bye Ban him from oz for 3 years. Please 🙏 2/2 he now needs to show some grace and dignity, jump on his First class Emirates flight home and work out how he is going to repair his reputation as a role model. 1/2 djokavic chose not to play in the AO when he chose not to get vax. He gained a technical lifeline-when he contracted covid 16 Dec but lost this by not following local laws to isolate, instead choosing to do media opportunities, and by lying on his arrival documentation. 1/2

Another one sorted out Thinks he's above the law Now let's go for the trolley ie big dog next Djokovic knew the entry rules for Australia, but lost … well done Australia for standing your ground … game, set, and match The right decision finally! He applied for the exemption late (after 10th Dec) yet was allowed to apply, so he has had special treatment all along. Hopefully this shows him and other people that no-one is above the law, irrespective of how big their head is.

Well that's what happens when you don't get the vaccine Good. Will wait for his dramatic dad to appear on tv again then lol Bye Novax 👋 Hopefully he won't find yet another excuse to drag this sorry saga on some more! It wasn't very smart of him to lie with impunity then, instead of apologizing, hire an army of lawyers to bail him out. He will never live down the damage he did to his reputation during this mess.
