Many petitions raised on the nets by supporters of the Serbian tennis player are calling for Craig Tailey to resign • "His selfish cowardly actions are a slap in the face to the Australian public", one of them claimed • Taliy is currently receiving support from the organization



Great pressure is being exerted on Craig Tiley, chairman and CEO of the Australian Tennis and Executive Director of the Australian Open in particular, to resign following the protracted saga surrounding Novak Djokovic.

The organization has issued a statement from its board of directors acknowledging the problematic nature of the scandal, but backing Tiley in his role.

"We want to make it clear from the outset that we respect the Immigration Minister's decision and the Australian Federal Court's ruling this weekend," the statement said.

"As the Australian tennis family, we recognize that recent events have been a significant distraction for everyone, and we are very sorry for the impact this has had on all players. There are always lessons to be learned, and we will review all aspects of our preparation and implementation to streamline our planning - as we "We do it every year. This process always starts as soon as the Australian Open champions wave their trophies."

Security and communications are located outside Djokovic's law firm

The statement did not help silence Nola's fans who want Tiley to resign to cover up the embarrassment surrounding the events.

Several online petitions have surfaced since the drama calling for his resignation took place.

One Change.org petition calls the case an "international embarrassment" and accuses Tailey of trying to exploit a loophole in the law to harm the decorated tennis player.

"He planned this way to make Djokovic look like he's over the industry," the petition organizers claimed. "His selfish cowardly actions are a slap in the face to the Australian public." In Melbourne earlier this week.

It has been two weeks since Djokovic was arrested upon entering Australia for failing to invent the necessary paperwork to enter the country.

He received a medical exemption from the tournament organizers to play in the championship, but it was not enough to meet the boundary requirements.

Djokovic avoided updating his medical condition and whether he had been vaccinated during the epidemic.

He declined to say whether or not he was vaccinated against the corona virus, but obtained an exemption based on the fact that he contracted it in December.

A number of actors spoke of the way he was treated, with many saying that although they did not support his beliefs, they believed the situation had been handled incorrectly.

Australian Nick Kirius was careful to say that his homeland's treatment of the virus had created the bad discourse around Djokovic.

"The way we deal with things is just so embarrassing. I just think that if Australia had dealt with the Corona better, we would not have gotten into such a big problem, it's crazy now."

Were we wrong?

Fixed!
