andy_murray Your boi is not bigger than a country. It does him well to be humbled DjokerNole Covidisreal Novak no go. To teach them a lesson why not to withdraw from ao Solidarity for the sake of sports and to the Sportsmanship!

Raducanu & Murray lead British interestEmma Raducanu and Andy Murray lead the British interest before the start of an Australian Open still clouded by the Novak Djokovic controversy. So BBC CNN and others use these accusatory language like '..they do what they want' as to create the perception that they did something wrong to swing public opinion against them and take them down, like you did with Trump Novak and now your UK PM that did your dirty work so far. Forget tennis, his involvement here is a far more important news item. Why is the media not talking about this story?

It feels everything here happened extremely last-minute and that’s why it became such a mess. Hopefully that won’t be the case at other events so there is no other situation like this. What is for sure is it will be fascinating to see how Raducanu develops in her first full season on the WTA Tour. I wouldn’t want that for Novak, don’t want that for tennis and hopefully it is done now. Hopefully, from all sides, from the tournament and from Novak, we can make sure this doesn’t happen at any other tournaments and that something is in place ahead of time.” Djokovic’s visa had been cancelled on Friday by Alex Hawke, the immigration minister, on “health and good order” grounds. Such a feat would again defy the odds. The Serb had immediately registered an application to the federal court in order to have his visa cancellation overturned, but Djokovic’s application was finally dismissed on Sunday..

During Saturday’s media day, many of the most prominent players said they were dissatisfied by how Djokovic’s visa status had consumed all attention just days before the grand slam. Raducanu has a very tough start too, facing 2017 US Open champion Sloane Stephens in the opening round. He has found an unlikely ally in Nick Kyrgios, who has been a fierce critic of the 34-year-old on other matters but turned his ire on his country for its treatment of Djokovic. “Honestly, I’m little bit tired of the situation because I just believe that it’s important to talk about our sport, about tennis,” said Rafael Nadal. Emma Raducanu, meanwhile, pointed out that events such as Murray’s run to the final of the Sydney International were being overshadowed. "Even if I keep getting knocked down, it's just about getting back up and basically just falling in front," she said afterwards. “I feel it has taken away a little bit from the great tennis that’s been happening over this summer in Australia,” she said on Saturday. What I know is that Novak is always the first one to stand for the players. Most players chose not to address Djokovic’s deportation on social media after his verdict."

01:58 Novak Djokovic fans dismayed after court upholds visa cancellation – video Those who spoke publicly on Sunday tended to be more sympathetic towards Djokovic, offering their support as he left the country. Alize Cornet, the French women’s No 1, noted the lack of reaction from her fellow players: “I know too little to judge the situation. Ranked 135th in the world, Murray was awarded a wildcard by Australian Open bosses and he remains confident of going deep into major tournaments once again.” Djokovic founded the Professional Tennis Players’ Association in 2020 alongside Canadian as an organisation to represent solely the players. What I know is that Novak is always the first one to stand for the players. But none of us stood for him. Speaking before that match, Murray said: "It's not a goal of mine to get to a specific ranking, like in the next year, but improving your ranking and getting yourself up into the top 50, top 30, top 20, allows you to be seeded in tournaments. Be strong,” she wrote on twitter. This isn’t right.

Despite having been a frequent critic of Djokovic over the years, Nick Kyrgios has been one of the world No 1’s most vocal supporters among his peers over the past week. There are many positive things to having good runs in these tournaments. The Australian responded to the verdict with a “facepalm” emoji. Support also came from more predictable sources. Can Norrie continue 2021 success? And what about the other Brits? During Murray's injury strife, Cameron Norrie and Dan Evans have had turns as the nation's leading men's player and both go into 2022 on the back of career-best seasons. He did not force his way into the country and did not “make his own rules”; he was ready to stay home. Vasek Pospisil, the co-founder alongside Djokovic of the Professional Tennis Players Association (PTPA) and a close friend, immediately spoke for the Serb, stating that Djokovic was “ready to stay home” if he had not received a medical exemption. “Novak would never have gone to Australia if he had not been given an exemption to enter the country by the government (which he did receive; hence Judge Kelly’s initial ruling),” he wrote on Twitter. The crowning glory came when the left-hander won the prestigious Indian Wells title in October, lifting him into the world's top 15 and overtaking Evans as the British number one.
