Craig Tiley corrects the shot: even the CEO of Tennis Australia has questioned the presence of Novak Djokovic at the first Grand Slam of the season after declaring during a long interview of how all the national bodies were working to ensure the presence of the best players in the world.
Tiley said: “We are on track to get back all the best players in the world all. Right now we are in a very different health situation from that of a few months ago, with people moving freely around the world. world and very few restrictions.
This leads me to think that we will be able to have the best players in the world in a few months.” Words strongly rejected by the former minister of internal affairs, Karen Andrews, firmly opposed to the annulment of the sentence that established not to grant a visa to Djokovic for the next three years.
She explained: “I don’t think there are any reasons why the decision should be reversed simply because he can afford it economically. The government should also consider all other people whose visas have been canceled.
There cannot be a rule for Novak Djokovic and a rule for everyone else. That’s not fair.”
Tiley explained: “We won’t put any pressure”
Then new pages are added to the story, with Tiley explaining how Tennis Australia, taking advantage of the trail left by the organizers of the US Open, will not interfere in the government’s decision regarding the presence of the twenty-one time Grand Slam champion.
So reviewing the position for a few days. CEO of the Australian Open: “This is not an issue that we can press. Novak and the government have to resolve this issue together, we will then comply and follow all instruction.”
Tiley then said: “We will not interfere between the two sides, they will have to decide. Depending on the result, we would obviously be happy to welcome him back here in Australia.”
