Madrid, Jan 10 (EFE) .- Rafael Nadal did not hesitate to affirm that “justice has spoken” and that therefore Novak Djokovic “has every right to participate” in the Australian Open.
An Australian court on Monday ordered the release of the number one tennis player, the Serbian Novak Djokovic, who had been held since last Thursday in a hotel in the city of Melbourne after the revocation of his visa for not being vaccinated against covid-19.
Judge Anthony Kelly of the Melbourne Federal Circuit Court ordered the Australian Government to implement the release as soon as possible, hand over his passport and personal effects, and pay legal costs.
“It seems perfect to me that Djokovic can compete. It seems correct to me, justice has to speak in this case and I am always a defender of justice in all causes,” said Nadal, on Onda Cero’s “Más que Uno” program. .
“A circus has been set up around many stories; but, beyond what I can agree with Djokovic, without a doubt the justice has spoken and has the right to participate in the Australian Open and it is the fairest thing to do. I wish all the luck. ” followed.
Nadal was sincere in stating: “On a personal level, I much prefer that he not play, but in the end it is a reality that sport is sport and many interests move around. Everything is much better when the best can be playing.”
The Spanish tennis player also considers that the controversy surrounding Djokovic’s decision not to be vaccinated and the subsequent refusal of the Australian government to allow him to stay in the country has overflowed, especially on social networks.
“Social networks have radicalized the world and there is a free letter to say what later in the face, in the street, people do not tell you,” Nadal certified.
“Everyone is free to make their own decisions and that carries its own consequences,” he added.
Delving into his thoughts about the pandemic, the tennis player said that he tries to “listen to the people who know.” “The most important institutions in the world say that the vaccine is the way to stop this pandemic and the disaster that we have been living for the last 20 months. I try to do what they tell me. I neither feel less intelligent nor more intelligent for doing it, I try follow people who know more about it. “
“All the debate that is generated around it is a circus, but there is one thing that is clear, no matter how much debate is generated, is that there are millions of deaths in the world from this virus. This is a reality,” he concluded Rafael Nadal.
