Tennis correspondent, The Times (@TimesSport). Views are mine.
Court documents starting to drop. More background here behind the decision to cancel Novak Djokovic's visa for a second time. Some very interesting inclusions and frankly wider than I had initially thought it would be. fedcourt.gov.au/services/acces…
One section contains the immigration minister Alex Hawke's consideration that Djokovic's presence in Australia may lead to "an increased number of people deciding to not receive a booster vaccine" and "increased pressure [being] placed on the Australian health system".
Just in from the federal circuit court on Djokovic vs the Minister for Immigration: "A directions hearing will be conducted tonight at 8.45pm (Melbourne Time) before Judge Anthony Kelly of the FEDERAL CIRCUIT COURT."
This hearing will be shown on YouTube. Starts in 25 minutes!
BREAKING: Australian Open draw "cancelled until further notice"
Something afoot behind the scenes in the last few minutes here at Melbourne Park. The live stream had started shortly after 3pm but has now ended. No new time given for the draw.
