I’m hearing the Federal Immigration Minister will cancel the visa.

But it won’t end there.

Government runs slow. Just ask the Bilo family or any other refugee caught up in the same system.
Feel free to call me RickyRicky StickStick if you like. I will also accept Super Fui, King Brad, Kid Dynamite, Chocolate-Thunda... or Brad.

I wonder if they are deliberately delaying the decision as a strategy to make it as hard as possible for Djokovic to appeal in court before the tournament begins.

Here’s how it will play out Azza.

His visa will be cancelled.
His lawyers will file an injunction.
It will be heard in court next week.
Novak will be allowed to play..at least rnd 1 awaiting decision.

This decision should be followed globally.

Novak will not travel around the world playing tennis until he is jabbed.

That’s the rule.

Yep. He can suffer in his Djoks.
Im really hoping Border Security was there to film the whole thing. That'd be the episode for the ages.

There is something about the guy... playing a sport he clearly absolutely hates, because he's good enough at it to make a comfortable living, but being more invested in being a "character" rather than actually knuckling down and achieving all he can...

i mean, it's not a path i'd take, or advise anyone to take... but now we're here... i find him oddly compelling.

I’m exactly the same Bot. I saw his stats against the top 4 players this week. It shows me if he actually cared, he could be one of the top players going around.

Djoker: 2 - 0
Medvedev: 2 - 0
Zverev: 4 - 3
Tsitsipas: 2 - 1

Pretty sure he has a winning % over Rafa as well

He has got to where he is purely on natural ability and doesn't want to put in that extra 10 percent to be in that top 10 consistently. I remember reading similar about Tomic - he boasted about not giving a **** about the sport because he could cruise through it and earn a very decent living. Kyrgios is more talented than Tomic though but has a similar attitude.

I mean he might hate the machine as well but he's plainly said a few times that he just doesn't actually like the sport of tennis :lol:

Congrats to Ashleigh Barty.

She gives all Australians a warm tingly feeling.

So humble, layed back yet on top of her game.

Surely I deserve a little credit?

For years I've held a significant amount of power over our Ash. Every single time a tune in she loses. She could be up 6 - 0, 5 - 0 (40 - love) and if I tune in... she loses. It's happened too often for it to just be a coincidence. So tonight as soon as Collins broke her serve, early in that second set I turned it off. I'm sure she noted it in her post match press conference.

When the nominations come up for 2023 Australian of the year it will be a crime if your contributions are not acknowledged.
