Novak Djokovic’s mother: “I want to thank everyone in the world who stood up and supported him in Melbourne outside this so called hotel.”

“It’s the biggest victory of his career, it’s bigger than any Grand Slam,” she said.

“He didn’t do anything wrong, he didn’t break any of their laws. He was subjected to harassment. He fought against the system and the government because he had the right to be there, ”she adds.

Djokovic’s brother: “He was branded in different ways for many years and he always supported freedom of choice.”

Novak’s brother Djokovic confirmed that the world No. 1 resumed training today and will join the presser after “a few minutes on the court”.

Novak Djokovic’s brother: “As a family we found it very difficult, we are very moved for my brother. It is very difficult to defend Novak and not to offend anyone at the same time. We are fighters for justice and the state. We have done everything we can to follow the procedures and show everyone that we need to send love to Novak.

According to the BBC, Novak Djokovic and his family will hold a press conference and address the media after winning his VISA battle in court on Monday. Djokovic’s father said the world number 1 will join the family via video link for the scheduled press conference. The press conference is scheduled to take place at 6:30 p.m. IST and has been postponed for an hour likely with Dokvoic being released from detention.

According to reports, Djokovic’s father told Serbian press and Sky News that he was arrested as large numbers of police reached the lawyers’ office with an immigration transport van.

“What we can do is make this known on all social media – they want to capture and lock Novak again. We are currently consulting the PRs on the next steps. He is currently with his lawyers in the room where they were during the hearing, thinking about the options ”, Novak Djokovic’s brother Djordje Djokovic told The Telegraph.

However, according to the Sydney Morning Herald, the report of his arrest was denied by government officials.

Australian Federal Immigration Minister Alex Hawke warned earlier that he could use more power to cancel Djokovic’s visa again. It is up to the Minister to use his power to use his “personal power of annulment” even after a court decision.
