Australian Open: crowds of Novak Djokovic supporters rally outside the Park hotel – video | Sport


Dozens of Novak Djokovic supporters were seen gathered outside Melbourne’s Park hotel on Sunday here the world No 1 is being held ahead of his court challenge.

A bid by the Morrison government to delay Novak Djokovic’s visa hearing by two days has been rejected by the federal circuit court.

The court heard on Thursday that Tennis Australia had said it would need to know whether Djokovic could compete by Tuesday for scheduling purposes.

Legal experts have warned even with the hearing proceeding on Monday, there is no guarantee Djokovic could secure a court order  to restore his visa in time to play. The Serbian star could also face his visa being revoked again on fresh grounds
