Novak Djokovic admitted that he did not comply with the

Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic, the world’s number one men’s tennis player, admitted that he did not comply with the quarantine rules after testing positive for Covid last month. Djokovic called it “error of reasoning” for his mistake.

In a statement on his Instagram account, Novak Djokovic said that he gave an interview to a journalist he met face-to-face two days later, despite the positive Covid test on 16 December.

“I accept that I need to change the date of this meeting,” Djokovic said in a statement.

The famous tennis player spoke to the French sports newspaper L’Equipe on this date.

‘My manager made a mistake while filling out the travel form’

On the other hand, Djokovic also admitted that he did not provide correct information on the travel form he filled out before entering Australia, and apologized for the unintentional mistake of his manager who filled out the form.

The form stated that Djokovic did not go to another country for 14 days before arriving in Australia. It was reported that Djokovic traveled to Serbia and Spain during this time.

“My team has provided the Australian government with additional information necessary to clarify this matter,” Djokovic said.

It is curiously expected whether the Australian government will deport Djokovic, who says he has a vaccine exemption because he caught the coronavirus.

His visa was revoked, he was released by court order

Djokovic, 34, is seeking to defend his title at the Australian Open, which he won for the ninth time last year, starting Monday.

If Djokovic wins the tournament, he will also make history as the first tennis player to win a total of 21 Grand Slam titles.

The anti-vaccine Serbian tennis player’s visa to Australia was revoked on 6 January, the day she entered the country.

Djokovic, who did not have the Covid vaccine, was taken to a hotel where asylum seekers are held, and was released with a court decision on Monday following the application of his lawyers.

However, the Australian government may still revoke Djokovic’s visa a second time before the tournament.
