SECOND Tennis Superstar “Kidnapped” By Australian Government, Imprisoned!


Has Australia just gone full dictatorship?

This is beginning to look very bad.

Just two days ago I brought you the story of world No. 1 tennas star Novak Djokovic who was held against his will in a guarded room in Australia while he faced deportation:

As I said at the time…think for a second: if they can do this to him, someone with fame and power, imagine what they will do to YOU and ME!

Well, they just struck again and again they have imprisoned a worldwide tennis star against her will.

Take a look:

Voracova is quoted as saying: “it felt like being in prison”:

Turns out the “Orange Man” wasn’t a Dictator at all, but the real Dictators sure are exposing themselves BIG LEAGUE right now, aren’t they?

People are (rightly) outraged:

Many are now calling Australia what it is: a Communist Regime:

Others are wondering if this is the last Australian Open we’ll ever see:

Here are more details, from IndiaToday:

Czech tennis player Renata Voracova left Australia on Saturday, the Czech Foreign Ministry said, after complications with visas that got her swept up in a furore over the handling of the country’s Covid-19 vaccine exemptions.

Voracova joined men’s number one Novak Djokovic in Australian immigration detention on Thursday, despite already having been allowed into the country and playing in a match before having her visa cancelled.

While Djokovic has challenged his visa cancellation, Voracova, a 38-year-old doubles specialist, decided to leave, telling Czech news site she would not challenge because of the time it would take to wait and not train ahead of the Australian Open later this month.

“(Renata) Voracova left Australia on Saturday based on her own decision to end her participation in the tournament due to complications with her visas,” the Czech ministry said.
“The decision was not based on her expulsion from the country,” it said.

The ministry added it was waiting for a response from Australian authorities to a diplomatic note sent on Friday.

Voracova was unvaccinated but had an exemption after becoming ill with Covid-19 before Christmas, around the time she had planned to get vaccinated following last season’s end, she told

She had entered the country and played in Melbourne earlier this week ahead of the Australian Open but was then detained in the same hotel as Djokovic.

ABC News reported Voracova departed to Dubai.

And here is more on Djokovic, from The Guardian:

If not for the freshly plastered graffiti over its walls informing passers-by of the dozens of detained refugees inside, the Park hotel looks like it could be any regular building in Melbourne. It exists in a particularly pleasant part of the world, just north of Melbourne’s central business district, right in the shadow of the city’s university and surrounded by a parade of enticing Asian restaurants. The building, meanwhile, is coloured in nondescript shades of cream and grey. In regular times, people rarely look twice.

Since Novak Djokovic arrived in Melbourne and was promptly ordered by the Australian Border Force to leave the country before being whisked away to the detention hotel as his lawyers appealed the cancellation of his visa, the Park hotel has been at the epicentre of one of the most absurd sporting stories in recent memory. As Djokovic’s fans gathered, so too did those campaigning for the freedom of the refugees, some of whom have been there for years.

On Monday, one way or another, those sights will be no more. Djokovic’s legal battle against his deportation from Australia began on Thursday as his lawyers secured an interim injunction for him to remain in the country until after his hearing, which the government did not oppose. That hearing begins on Monday at 10am.

Despite the spectacle, the facts are simple. Upon Djokovic’s arrival in Melbourne on Wednesday night, the Australian Border Force found that he was unable to prove that he met Australia’s entry requirements, which requires arrivals to be vaccinated. As an unvaccinated traveller, Djokovic had been granted a medical exemption through a process directed by Tennis Australia and the state of Victoria in order to compete in the Australian Open, but the federal government, and no other entity, controls the country’s borders.

Thus, Djokovic’s legal team will have to prove that the border force’s decision to cancel his visa and move to deport him was unlawful. On Saturday, court documents revealed that Djokovic sought his medical exemption after, his lawyers say, he was infected with Covid-19 on 16 December. His lawyers also cite his travel declaration and exemption as indication that he was entitled to enter Victoria.

Of the possible outcomes, Djokovic could win the case, allowing him to leave the hotel and compete, or he could lose it and be forced to depart the country. The case could rumble on, with his presence and freedom in Melbourne at the discretion of the judge.

The hearing is set to be a spectacle itself: it will be held on Microsoft Teams and be open to the public. The federal court’s website has published the link to Monday’s hearing, along with the warning in bold letters: “It is imperative that you keep your camera and audio off as this can affect the progress of the hearing.”

In the wake of so much public emotion, outrage and attention, that may be the entire goal for some.

Even though Djokovic remains the dominant player in men’s tennis, having stood one match from winning the grand slam last year, and will have other opportunities, every major tournament counts when you are 34 years old. He had arrived in Melbourne seeking a record-breaking 21st major singles title.

Should he lose the case, there are further concerns. If the cancellation of Djokovic’s visa is upheld, he could be banned from re-entering the country for three years. It remains to be seen whether he would even want to return to Australia after how things have panned out.

His cause has found support in unlikely corners. “It’s just too much at this point,” said Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios on Saturday. “Honestly, I hope it all gets sorted as soon as possible. For the sport we need him here, it’s that simple. He’s one of the most influential sports people probably of all time.”
