Novak Djokovic admits breaking isolation while Covid positive.

Novak Djokovic admits breaking isolation after testing

positive for Covid-19 earlier this month. He described the incident as an “error of

judgment.”

In the Instagram account post posted on Wednesday, the Serbian admitted that he had

met a journalist to conduct an interview just two days after testing positive on the 16th of

December.

“I accept that I should have rescheduled,” the man wrote.

The Australian government has scrutinized the man’s activities, considering whether or not

to deport the suspect.

In his post, the author also claimed that his agent made mistakes in the travel form that he

was using to enter Australia. As a result, the center has prompted an investigation by

officials.

Djokovic is not vaccinated and is hoping to keep the Australian Open title next week.

 His visa was canceled on the 6th of January, shortly after his arrival in the country, amid

doubts about the exemption to vaccines that would have allowed him to travel.

However, on Monday, the judge ruled dramatically and overturned the ruling in favor of the

player’s release from detention.

However, the government hasn’t ruled out any further actions. 

There’s a possibility that the immigration minister of the country could deny him his visa

the second time in the days before the start of the tournament.

“I felt obliged to go ahead and conduct the L’Equipe interview as I didn’t want to let the

journalist down,” Djokovic wrote in his Instagram post. 

“[I ensured] I socially distanced and wore a mask except when my photograph was being

taken.”

He claimed that reports of his appearance in public after the positive result of his test on

December 16 are “misinformation.”

Djokovic, in turn, admitted to making a false statement for his visa before he entered

Australia.

The agent claimed that he had committed a mistake while making a mistake when filling

out a section of the form that outlined his travel history. 

The paper said that he did not travel for 14 days before entering Australia.

However, recent reports suggest that the 34-year-old was in Serbia and Spain before her

trip.

“My agent sincerely apologizes for the administrative mistake in ticking the incorrect box,”

the agent wrote.

 “This was a human error and certainly not deliberate.”

“My team has provided additional information to the Australian government to clarify this

matter,” he said.

Its Border Force, the nation’s immigration officers, announced on Tuesday that they were

looking into whether he issued a “false declaration” – which could lead to the cancellation of

a visa.

The Australian Open begins on 17 January. If Djokovic succeeds, he’ll be the most

remarkable men’s tennis player in the history of tennis.

The professional tennis tour for men has demanded more understanding of the rules

required for entry into Australia and advised players to be vaccinated.

“The series of events leading to Monday’s court hearing has been damaging on all fronts,

including for Novak’s well-being and preparation for the Australian Open,” the ATP said.
