After leaving his lawyer’s office on Saturday afternoon Australian time, he arrived at the Tennis No. 1 hotel in a white van, which was also used as a refugee detention facility. Yesterday morning, the Australian Immigration Ministry canceled Djokovic’s visa for the second time, suspending him in Melbourne for attending the Australian Open scheduled for Monday.
