Novak Djokovic’s father drops big French Open hint as he blasts ‘assassination’ of star

Srdjan Djokovic, Novak Djokovic’s father, has labelled his son’s treatment in Melbourne as an ‘assassination attempt’ ahead of his deportation. Djokovic, publicly opposed to Covid vaccination, has been forced to leave Australia after having his visa cancelled twice in two weeks.

Srdjan has lamented the Australian government’s decision to deport Djokovic the day before the 2022 Australian Open gets underway.

But the world number one could already be focused on the next Grand Slam in May, the French Open.

Speaking after the Federal Court’s verdict, Srdjan had strong words about his son’s treatment and hinted that all eyes were now on success at Roland Garros.

He said: “The attempt to assassinate the best athlete in the world has ended. 50 bullets in Novak’s chest. See you in Paris.”
