World No. 1 tennis player Novak Djokovic is facing deportation from Australia again after his visa was revoked for a second time.

Immigration Minister Alex Hawke said Friday he used his ministerial discretion to revoke the 34-year-old's visa on public interest grounds.

The move came three days before the Australian Open is set to begin.

Djokovic's lawyers are expected to appeal the cancellation in a local court as they successfully did after the first cancellation.

The Serbian tennis star, who arrived in Melbourne last week to defend his Australian Open title, said he had been given a medical exemption from the country's COVID-19 vaccination rules.

But border officials said he failed to provide evidence to meet their requirements.
