4. NOT SO FAST, said the Aussie government. Upon arriving in Melbourne, Djokovic was detained for eight hours, at which point the Australian Border Force canceled his visa, saying he hadn't shown the requisite proof for an exemption. He wasn't the only one; at least two other players underwent the exact same process, but they seem to have left the country without argument. The problem, according to sources, was that Djokovic didn't really provide any evidence that he had been infected beyond the word of one doctor. All of which led to Australia's Deputy Prime Minister saying that if he lied, he should face serious consequences, and that, "You can't just wander around the world thinking that because you're really rich you're really above the laws of other nations."
