Coach Marian Vajda has called the events that happened to world No 1 Novak Djokovic a ‘political process’.

Djokovic was not given a chance to defend his Australian Open title after the world No 1 lost his appeal case with the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia ordering that he be deported.

The decision by Immigration Minister Alex Hawke to cancel Djokovic’s visa for a second time on Friday was unanimously upheld by Chief Justice James Allsop, Justice Anthony Besanko and Justice David O’Callaghan.

They found that the Serbian did not have grounds to dispute the deportation order and it means he will have to leave Australia.

The Slovak trainer has hit out, calling the decision unhealthy and unjust.

“It was a political process, it was an unhealthy and unjust decision and it will definitely have significant consequences, as it was also an invasion of his privacy and his family,” Vajda told the Sport.sk.

“It is clear that the whole situation hit him mentally, it will hurt him for a very long time and it will be difficult to get it out of his head.”

Even though the 34-year-old wasn’t able to defend his title due to his decision not to get vaccinated against Covid-19, he is determined to make the world a better place by curing the virus.

It has been reported that the 20-time Grand Slam winner and his wife Jelena hold a majority stake in a Danish biotech firm working to develop a treatment for coronavirus.

Vajda added: Novak is strong, steadfast and has not yet said his last word in tennis.”
