Novak Djokovic’s wife Jelena has thanked fans for all their support towards the world No.1 as he continues his legal battle to play at the Australian Open.

The Serb is currently being held at a detention hotel in Melbourne until Monday after arriving in Melbourne and being denied entry to the country following visa complications.

Djokovic, who has never revealed his coronavirus vaccination status, has been granted a medical exemption to play in the first grand slam of the year, due to start on January 17, but preparations have been far from ideal.

Fans have been spotted outside Djokovic’s hotel in recent days and his wife Jelena took to social media on Friday to share her thoughts on the saga with today being the equivalent of Christmas Day in Serbia.

‘It’s Christmas today for us, my wishes are for everyone to be healthy, happy, safe and together with families,’ Jelena tweeted.

‘We wish we are all together today, but my consolation is that at least we are healthy. And we will grow from this experience.

‘Thank you dear people, all around the world for using your voice to send love to my husband.

‘I am taking a deep breath to calm down and find gratitude (and understanding) in this moment for all that is happening.

‘The only law that we should all respect across every single border is Love and respect for another human being. Love and forgiveness is never a mistake but a powerful force.’

Djokovic’s court hearing has been adjourned until 10am Monday local time where he will discover if he is to be deported or not.

While Jelena shared her words of support for her husband on social media, his mother did not hold back on her views of the situation at a press conference held by the 20-time Grand Slam champion’s family.

‘I spoke with him a couple of hours ago, he was good, we didn’t speak a lot but we spoke for a few minutes. He was trying to sleep, but he couldn’t,’ Dijana Djokovic said.

‘As a mother, what can I say, you can just imagine how I feel, I feel terrible since yesterday, the last 24 hours.

‘They are keeping him like a prisoner, it’s just not fair, it’s not human. I hope he will stay strong as we are also trying, to give him some energy to keep going. I hope he will win.’

‘His accommodation [is] terrible. It’s just some small, immigration hotel, if it is a hotel at all. With bugs, it’s all dirty, the food is terrible.

‘They don’t want to give him a chance to move to a better hotel or a rented house.’
