Djokovic's brother says star is back on tennis court

Hours after he won a court battle Monday to stay in Australia to contest the Australian Open, Novak Djokovic hit the court and was training, his brother told reporters. “Novak is free. He was at the tennis court moments ago. He is training,” Djordje Djokovic said. Novak Djokovic, who had his exemption from strict coronavirus vaccination rules questioned upon his arrival in Melbourne, tweeted that he was still planning to compete. In a news briefing organised by the tennis star's family, his brother also thanked Judge Anthony Kelly who ruled the world number one had not been given enough time to speak to his lawyers before that decision was made and ordered the government to release him within 30 minutes from a Melbourne quarantine hotel where he has spent the last four nights.
