Czech player to join Novak Djokovic in immigration hotel ahead of deportation over vaccination status


Another tennis player is reportedly facing being thrown out of Australia over her coronavirus vaccination status after her visa was cancelled and she was detained in the same immigration hotel as Novak Djokovic.

According to multiple reports, Czech veteran Renata Voracova was seized by Australian Border Force (ABF) officials on Thursday and told she would be deported.

Voracova was said to have entered Australia last month with a medical exemption from having to have been vaccinated after she said she was deemed to have recovered from Covid-19.

The 38-year-old had already played in an Australian Open warm-up tournament in Melbourne.

Djokovic’s own deportation has been delayed until at least Monday after he went to court to overturn the decision to throw him out of the country.

Lawyers for the world No 1 secured an interim injunction preventing him being ejected ahead of a hearing at 11pm UK time Sunday (10am local time Monday).
