Australia cancels ANOTHER tennis player’s visa after detaining Novak Djokovic at the border – and move her to the same hotel as the Serbian superstar


Another tennis player has had her visa cancelled by Australia after Novak Djokovic was refused entry into the country and moved to an immigration hotel.

Czech Republic player Renata Voráčová was detained in Melbourne by Australian Border Force officials on Thursday and taken to the city’s Park Hotel, ABC News reported.

The hotel is the same one where Djokovic is being held after his own visa was cancelled due to a lack of evidence supporting his vaccination exemption.

She and Djokovic are believed to have been granted the same exemption by Tennis  Australia as they both had been recently infected with Covid-19.

A source said the 38-year-old was in contact with officials from the Czech Republic. 

Her detention comes after it emerged a leaked document from Tennis Australia wrongly informed unvaccinated players they could enter the country for the Australian Open if they had caught Covid-19 within the last six months.
