Srdjan Djokovic was delighted after the judge ruled in the favor of his son Novak.
On Monday, the judge reinstated Djokovic’s visa and now he is expected to play at the Australian Open.
Djokovic spent five days in detention before the court ruled in his favor.
“Thank you to everyone in the world that has been fighting for the freedom of speech. Various things have happened, and it’s been difficult but he’s extremely strong mentally. He always tried to help, kept a good behaviour,” Srdjan said, per Tennis Majors.
“The last game have been played the past 5 days. Let him now play the game he’s the best in the world at. They took away his rights. They attempted to persuade him to sign his visa revocation. He refused to because there was no reason.
“He was alone with them for several hours, without a phone. He finally had his phone back and could contact his legal team who made a very good work. We respect the law and rules of every country where we go.”
Djokovic’s father praises the judge
Srdjan thought the judge was fair and ultimately made the right decision.
“The judge was fantastic. He simply respected the facts and he took the only possible decision : let Novak make his job,” Srdjan added.
Meanwhile, Djokovic’s brother, Djordje, thanked to everyone who showed support for Novak.
“Thank you to people all over the world, people have risen in defence of Novak, we have seen the footage in front of the detention centre. Also, thank you to Judge Kelly, who was thorough and neutral,” Djordje said, per Sasa Ozmo.
“I am sure judicial system of Australia was under enormous pressure, the whole world was watching.
“Novak is free, he practiced on the courts. He went there to chase another title, with the best possible intent and all the documentation.”
