Again, Perhaps Consequences of not being vaxed or not showing proof of being vaccinated.

Why they would even think of giving him an exemption, I find rather mind boggling. Rules for the wealthy and rules for the rest of us???

Play by the rules or in this case don’t play.

Still a fan of Federer, love(d) the classic unforced error style. At 40 now, he has slid in the rankings to around 16th..

Finally joker is gone, his team knew the rules and didn’t abide by them.

He doesn’t have to agree with the rules Australia has set up, he needs to abide by them as a visitor.

Added later: WTH he gets another appeal.

I get the impression that he is arrogant and thinks he is above the rules as they are laid out.

If that's true then I hope they don't let him play! Send the message to him and those like him that they can't ignore the rules.

I find him to be very arrogant, hopefully Australia gives him the boot. Then on the clay at Roland-Garros Rafael Nadal kicks his butt all over the court.

Good-bye joker you’re out of Australia, maybe for 3 years.

Maybe better luck at Roland-Garros.

And now he's not being allowed to play in France unless he can prove vaccination. Good on the world of tennis.
