Novak Djokovic has won an appeal against the cancellation of his visa and can now stay in Australia and play in the Australian tennis open.

Djokovic’s visa had been cancelled, but he believed he had permission to enter the country because he had recovered from the Covid last month and was therefore exempt from vaccination rules. The Australian government have said they could still cancel the visa.

Rob and Roy discuss this news story and teach you some related vocabulary so you can talk about it too.

Judges Anthony Kelly and Nikola Pilic are proof that people should not be divided by nationality! Novak complied with all the requirements and they allowed him to get out of the country,just to humiliate him.Nadal had Covid-19 and less than two weeks later was allowed without quarantine to enter Australia and play tennis. That is a breaking rules and regulations,but everyone ignored it! So Tomic and Nadal can play? The rules don't apply to them? Tomic admitted that he played tennis, even though he tested positive for Covid-19. Nadal was supposed to be in quarantine for 14 days, and he was only 11. IS THAT OKAY???!! Novak had Covid-19 and as such has natural antibodies, he has also been tested several times and has always been negative! Nick Kyrgios has been vaccinated several times and is in quarantine and respects the rules. Vaccines do not protect 100% and even vaccinated people can also transmit and receive Covid-19. Not everyone is treated the same and not everyone has the same rights!

I have a special joke for the English student. Listen about this - Mister Djokovic is challenging the Hawke-eye decision. Is very funny because I don't say Hawk-eye like the technology used in tennis to see if ball is out. Instead I say Hawke - like the minister in Australia Alex Hawke. I make jokes like that all the times.


14.01.22 в 10:39

Australia is not independent, it is just the property of 4 psychopathic American Nazi billionaires who want to rule the world. Australia has become a NAZI country, it would have done well to completely refuse to play in a shit country. You cannot promote a country that does not respect human rights. The law is shit law, the law of a Nazi country is shit and you must NOT respect it, you must put in jail the politicians of a Nazi country who have built concentration camps for the NOT slaves of power, and you must spit in the face of journalists and the media who propaganda for a Nazi country!

14.01.22 в 09:00

When sport becomes dependent on politics, what happened to Novak Djokovic happened. I call it fascism. From a spoltre that is not vaccinated but negative and healthy there is no danger, but from vaccinated ones that are still positive there is a danger.

13.01.22 в 08:18

Ne želim da pišem na engleskom iz razloga što sam srpkinja čije
mišljenje nikoga neće interesovati. Sve što se dešava našem Noletu je sramno. Što bi neki Novak iz neke tamo divljacke Srbije bio najbolji igrač sveta. Pritom većina ne zna ni gde se ta Srbija nalazi. Mržnjom , ne znanjem i neinformisanoscu pokazujete nemoć i pribegavanju raznim lošim postupcima. Još uvek u Srbiji postoji LJUBAV i Vera (oprosti im boze) pa smo ubeđeni da će Novak biti u istoriji zapamćen kao najbolji svih vremena i oni koji su se svesrdno borili da ga onemoguće u tome

Thanks Roy and Rob for sharing new vocabulary. By the way the three words are new for me.


12.01.22 в 17:46

The funniest thing is that Australia is looking what he has done after positive Covid test. Well Serbia is not a part of Australia, the state has it's own laws and constitution, so if he went in casino or on a big meal,on an event or stayed in bed is a matter of Serbia laws. For AUS matters only that he was positive on 16.12.2022 what he was doing after is a matter of Spain and Serbia laws.

Fucking of Djokovic is a pure political act. The Australian Prime Minister is trying to get a few political points in the "Djokovic case" before the elections. Interestingly, they looked through Nadal's fingers. Black James "Jesse" Owens, a famous American athlete, was the star of the 1936 Berlin Olympics. He won four medals. Hitler was not thrilled with his triumph. The story of Djokovic is the story of Hitler even after Hitler. Shameful, but so typical of a virtuous, new, world. "The law is the same for everyone." The law has never been the same for everyone and will not be. Djokovic did everything "according to the law". I wonder what few ask, how long it was "legal" to ban Russian tennis player Datalia Vihyanceva from entering Australia, even though she was vaccinated, but, poor thing, by Sputnik, which Australians do not recognize. To be vaccinated today means to be vaccinated with a "phaser".

Hello team!
I enjoyed the expression TO HAND A REPRIEVE. I've already bumped into it sometimes but today I was able to review it.
"Here in my city, it's been raining since december the 31st . Rain hasn't given reprieve"
Is it right?

Thank you!

They seem so proud of the fact that 90% of the Australians are fully vaccinated. Well, if H---i>tl/er was in charge, 100% of the population would be fully vaccinated. 90% is pretty close to 100%, just saying.................

If he lied and did breach isolation, travel bans just before he came to Australia, then he still can be deported.

Here in Bolívia, the government started requesting to everyone the covid-19 vaccination certificate since last January 1 but later quashed it until next January 26 due to the mass of protest in the country. Great vocabulary words for today' lesson. Many thanks from Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
