Nick Kyrgios challenges Australia to 'do better' as his match against Novak Djokovic takes an unexpected turn.

Nick Kyrgios has long been a harsh critic of Novak Djokovic, but the Australian star believes the world No. 1 deserves better treatment than he is currently receiving.

Djokovic is being held in a Melbourne hotel quarantine and faces deportation after arriving in the country without a valid medical exemption from vaccination.

Kyrgios, who is ranked No. 93 in the world, is pro-vaccination but described the situation as "really bad."

"Look, I believe in taking action; I got vaccinated for the sake of others and my mother's health, but the way we're handling Novak's situation is appalling," the 26-year-old wrote on Twitter.

"Like these memes and headlines, this is one of our great champions, but he is only human at the end of the day. "Perform better."

Kyrgios slammed the Serbian superstar in 2020 for his ill-fated Adria tour, describing it as a "bone-headed decision" and then referring to him as a "tool" following the nine-time Open champion's remarks about quarantine last year.

However, Kyrgios stated late last year that he believed it was "morally wrong" to require people like Djokovic to receive COVID-19 vaccinations.

Kyrgios is not the first player to lend his support to Djokovic.

Tennys Sandgren stated on Thursday that Australia does not deserve to host a grand slam following the country's bungled handling of the Djokovic saga.

The unvaccinated American will be unable to compete in this year's event due to his refusal to comply with the mandate or, like Djokovic, seek an exemption.

The ambassador of Australia to Serbia has been summoned to meetings.

Serbia's foreign affairs ministry has reacted angrily to Australia's decision to revoke tennis star Novak Djokovic's visa, claiming that the world No. 1 was the victim of a political game.

Daniel Emery, Australia's ambassador in Belgrade, was summoned to the ministry and urged to personally assist Djokovic.

Serbia's ministry of foreign affairs stated that Australia acted in bad faith toward the tennis star.

"Starovic emphasized that the Serbian public has a strong impression that Djokovic is a victim of a political game being played against his will and that he was lured to Australia in order to be humiliated," the ministry statement said.

"Novak Djokovic is not a criminal, terrorist, or illegal migrant, but he was treated as such by Australian authorities, which understandably infuriates his fans and Serbian citizens."

Karen Andrews, Australia's Home Affairs Minister, responded by reminding Djokovic, who has remained in Melbourne pending legal action, that he is free to abide by the deportation order and leave the country.

Former coach warns Djokovic against making a 'huge error'

Novak Djokovic is making a "huge mistake" by refusing to get vaccinated against COVID-19, according to Boris Becker, the world No. 1's former coach.

The Serbian is awaiting the outcome of an appeal against the Australian Border Force's decision to revoke the reigning Australian Open champion's entry visa and deport him on Monday.

Djokovic has previously expressed opposition to vaccination and announced on social media prior to departing for the Australian Open that he had been granted "exemption permission" to enter the country.

Becker - a former world No. 1 and two-time Australian Open champion in addition to three Wimbledon singles titles - had a successful three-year partnership with Djokovic, winning six grand slam titles.

The 54-year-old maintains a close relationship with the Serbian, but believes their approaches to coronavirus prevention are diametrically opposed.

"On this occasion, I believe he is making a grave error by refusing vaccination. It is one that jeopardizes the remainder of his career and his opportunity to establish himself as the greatest player of all time," Becker wrote in a Daily Mail column.

"Having sat in his box four times as he won the Australian Open, I am fully aware of his incredible abilities as a competitor. Additionally, I believe he possesses an endearing personality that is easily misunderstood. However, these advantages can also be disadvantages. The same incredible determination that I witnessed him use to win so many close matches can work against him due to his stubbornness."

Becker believes that if Djokovic maintains his vaccine hesitancy, it will complicate his playing career.

"He is an incredibly strong-willed individual with strong convictions. If he does not, he will look back in ten years and realize he made a mistake," Becker explained.

"This is not solely an Australian issue. The reality is that we live in a different world, and he will have a difficult time living the life of a professional tennis player who travels without the vaccination. Those are the rules, whether one agrees with them or not, and they must be followed. Perhaps one day we will revert to a more normal state, but at 34, he does not have much time remaining to accomplish his goals.

As someone who is fond of him, I am aware that he will suffer. He will be astounded at the treatment he is receiving, in a depressing room with his meals shoved beneath the door. It will be doubly perplexing because he adores playing in Australia, perhaps no stadium more than the Rod Laver Arena."

Mrs Djokovic shatters the silence

Jelena Djokovic, Djokovic's wife, took to social media on Friday to express her gratitude to her husband's legion of fans.

Jelena Djokovic wrote on social media during the Christmas season in Serbia: "Thank you, dear people, for using your voice to send love to my husband."

I'm taking a deep breath to ground myself and find gratitude (and understanding) for everything that's happening in this moment. "The only law that should apply across all borders is love and respect for another human being."

"Thank you, hvala vam! #WeStandWithNovak #WeStandWithDjokovic #NoleFam."

A family makes a remarkable protest

Srdjan Djokovic's father claimed during a protest and press conference in Belgrade that his son had been "crucified" by Australian authorities.

"He met all of the requirements for entry and participation in the tournament, which he would have undoubtedly won, because he is Novak, the world's best tennis player and sportsman," Djokovic senior stated.

"Jesus was crucified and endured great suffering, but he is still with us today. Additionally, Novak is crucified... He will persevere."
