Novak Djokovic’s wife Jelena has broken her silence as Novak Djokovic continues his legal battle to play at the Australian Open.

Speaking to Twitter on Friday, Jelena wrote: “It’s Christmas today for us, my wishes are for everyone to be healthy, happy, safe and with families. We wish we were all together today, but my consolation is that at least we’re healthy. And we will grow from this experience.

‘Thank you dear people all over the world for using your voice to send love to my husband. I take a deep breath to calm myself down and find gratitude (and understanding) right now for everything that is going on.

“The one law we should all obey across every border is love and respect for another human being. Love and forgiveness are never a mistake but a powerful force. ‘

Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Thursday revealed that Djokovic’s visa had been canceled because he “did not meet the entry requirements.”

He is currently being accommodated in an immigrant detention hotel in Melbourne alongside refugees, but Home Secretary Karen Andrews insists he is “free to go” if he wishes.

“Mr Djokovic is not being held captive in Australia, he is free to leave at any time he chooses and Border Force will facilitate that,” she said.

Djokovic’s own father insists he is “being held captive … to trample all over Serbia and the Serbian people”.

He was reportedly given medical dispensation from Tennis Australia and the Victorian government to enter Australia, but after further questioning by border forces it was determined he did not qualify.

Djokovic’s legal team took the case to the Federal Court of Australia with the aim of promptly overturning the decision.

On Thursday, the court ordered Djokovic to stay in the country at least until 4 p.m. Monday. We hope the case will be settled in court that day.

Tennis Australia has said it wants a decision on whether Djokovic can play in the Grand Slam by Tuesday “for scheduling purposes.”
