Summary

Some supporting Djokovic and calling for his release, others speaking out against Australia's detention system.During his first round of detention in the hotel, Djokovic had requested to be moved to a “more suitable place of detention that would enable him to train,” according to court documents published January 8.Djokovic's appeal hearing for the second cancellation of his visa is expected to take place on Sunday morning at 9:30 am Australia time, CNN affiliate Nine News reported, citing one of the tennis star's lawyers, Paul Holdenson. A white van believed to be carrying Novak Djokovic left his lawyers’ offices in Melbourne on Saturday afternoon.The men's world No. 1 was detained by Australian border authorities on Saturday morning, in accordance with a court-ordered arrangement decided Friday after his visa was revoked for the second time by Australia's immigration minister, Alex Hawke.Djokovic now will spend Saturday night in pre-immigration detention before facing a federal court hearing Sunday morning, Australia time, in a last ditch attempt to overturn the ruling.In justifying his decision to cancel the tennis champion's visa, Hawke said Djokovic's ongoing presence in Australia could lead to an “increase in anti-vaccination sentiment” or even “civil unrest," court filings show.The Australian government agreed not to deport Djokovic over the weekend before his case has concluded.Two-time grand slam champion and current women's world No. 3 Garbine Muguruza said the Novak Djokovic media frenzy could have been "avoided" if the men's world No. 1 had gotten vaccinated, like other tennis players entering Australia to play in the tournament.
