Indian doubles specialist Purav Raja didn’t want to criticize Novak Djokovic, but said the turmoil in Djokovic’s visa was “embarrassing for tennis.” On Friday, Immigration Minister Alex Hawke used his power to cancel Djokovic’s visa.
“I don’t know my view on it. I don’t know my view on it because I’m not the Australian Government, but I do know it’s embarrassing in tennis,” Raja said. I told Keeda. Djokovic flew to Australia after being granted a medical exemption, but was detained after his visa was revoked by the Australian Border Force.
“I don’t know what the visa situation was, I don’t know how he was allowed in the country,” Raja added.
Raja further comments on the status of Djokovic visas
“The only thing I can say is that visas are subject to immigration.
All visas given to you for all governments are subject to immigration. And there are obvious problems with immigrants, “Raja explained. “Therefore, in theory, the Australian government and immigrants have problems with the Tennis Association.
In an interview with Sports Keeda, Raja was also asked if he thinks this year’s Australian Open will be a generational change. Roger Federer, Serena and Venus Williams are out of the Australian Open.
“I don’t think a particular slam is changing. I don’t think this Australian Open is changing. As in all other cases, everyone seems to have seen a slow retirement. In, changes will occur gradually, or 4-5 years, we will see
It will change, “Raja explained.
“But tennis is always big. Wimbledon is always bigger than the player, Australian Open is always bigger than the player. We are just players, going back and forth. Tennis continues, tournaments live-and We play for those tournaments. “”
