Unlike Novak Djokovic, Voracova decided to give up the tournament and leave Australia due to her limited ability to train, and the Czech consulate is helping her complete the formalities to leave Australia, the Czech ICJ said.
According to the Czech media, Vorachova recently contracted covid-19 and has enough antibodies, so she obeyed the doctor’s recommendation to wait for vaccination for several months, and thanks to covid-19, she had every right to participate in the prestigious tennis tournament and enter Australia.
The Czech tennis player has been in Australia without any problems since last month, but after the affair over Novak Djokovic’s visa broke out, Voracova was arrested by Australian authorities on Thursday with a request to leave the country and locked in a hotel where immigrants await entry or deportation.
