Renowned tennis star Novak Djokovic looses appeal over his Australian visa and faces deprivation from the Australian open 2022 after a federal court declined his appeal to stay in the country. Thus, suppressing his possibilities of winning his 21st grand slam.

Novak Djokovic has lost his chance at the Australian federal court to revoke his visa cancellation on Sunday. His departure will begin shortly on ahead of the Australian open which is all set to begin on Monday.

The judges endorsed the decision previously made by the immigration minister to cancel the Serbian's visa on public interest grounds. The court has not revealed the full reasons behind their unanimous decision. Chief justice James Allson elaborated more on the court's decision. In his words, the court was reviewing ''the lawfulness or legality of the decision'' made by the immigration minister, more precisely ''Whether the decision was for different reasons irrational or legally unreasonable''.

Djokovic, who was prepared to face Miomir Kecmanovic on Monday, conveyed his opinions in a statement through The Age newspaper. He said, ''I would like to make a brief statement to address the outcomes of today's court hearing. I will now be taking some time to rest and to recuperate, before making any

further comments beyond this.''

Further, he went ahead and expressed his extreme disappointment with the ruling. Hence he finished his statement by adding "Finally, I would like to thank my family, friends, team, supporters, fans and my fellow Serbians for your continued support. You have all been a great source of strength to me."

According to the court's report, Djokovic will not be able to apply for a visa to enter Australia for three years approximately, implying he would not be able to attend the event till 2025 and his dreams of winning the Australian open 2022 as fan's favourite will remain unfulfilled.
