Novak Djokovic was received this Thursday by the president of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic after the scandal he experienced upon his arrival in Melbourne to play in the Australian Open without having been vaccinated and which ended with the Serbian deported from the country after being considered a health risk public.
Djokovic wanted to thank Vucic for the support he received during his particular odyssey in Australia. “I wanted to see you because I felt the need to thank you for your support and that of all the institutions after the unfortunate events in Australia. I had great support from Serbia and many people sent me messages of encouragement. As the president of Serbia, you had no obligation to give me your support, but I want him to know that I am very grateful to him. He put himself in a very compromising position and I will never forget that.
The Serbian tennis player also took the opportunity to send a message about when he will tell his version of the events of what he experienced in Australia. “The circumstances under which I was detained showed that this connection will work forever. And to the media, I would like to say that since I have not explained what happened in Australia, I ask for your patience, because I will make an official statement in the next 7 or 10 days.”
