No reason was given to media in attendance.If you're just joining us, here's everything you need to know.What: The draw for the Australian Open takes place today, but all eyes are on the country's Immigration Minister Alex Hawke, who may decide in the coming hours whether or not to revoke tennis superstar Novak Djokovic's reinstated visa and deport him — which could spark another legal standoff.Djokovic arrived in Australia last week, only to have his visa canceled and face temporary detention because he did not have a valid medical exemption for the Covid-19 vaccination requirement for all arrivals. The Serbian world No. 1 was detained in Australia last week over a visa and vaccination dispute, and on Tuesday released a lengthy statement addressing his movements in December 2020.Here is a timeline of some key events: Jan. 1Jan. 2Jan. 5Jan. 6Jan. 10 Jan. 11 Jan. 12From CNN's Jessie YeungTennis star Novak Djokovic on Wednesday admitted he did not immediately isolate after testing positive for Covid-19 last month — but denied knowing he had the virus when attending public events.In a statement published on social media, he also apologized for an apparently false travel declaration, saying it had been submitted on his behalf by a member of his support staff in "human error."Djokovic added that he had made an "error of judgment" in doing a media interview and photo shoot with a French sports newspaper after he had tested positive.The journalist and photographer working for L'Equipe were not told Djokovic was Covid-positive before, during or after the interview with the tennis star in Belgrade, the French sports newspaper reported Wednesday.Djokovic arrived in Melbourne last week and promptly had his visa canceled for entering the country without a valid exemption for the country's vaccination requirement for all arrivals — but won the legal battle on Monday, with a judge ruling he should be allowed to stay.But questions have lingered over Djokovic's behavior — specifically, his positive Covid diagnosis last month before he arrived in Melbourne, and the public events he attended at the time."This is misinformation which needs to be corrected, particularly in the interest of alleviating broader concern in the community about my presence in Australia, and to address matters which are very hurtful and concerning to my family."I want to emphasize that I have tried very hard to ensure the safety of everyone and my compliance with testing obligations."Read his full statement: Please enable JavaScript for a better experience.
