Deported Renata Voracova speaks on Novak Djokovic winning his case in court

Czech doubles star Renata Voracova said she felt happy after Novak Djokovic won his case in court and also admitted she felt a bit frustrated she didn’t get a chance to fight to stay in Australia. 

Voracova started her 2022 season at the Melbourne Summer Set 2 last week, before she was taken into detention on Friday. 

On Saturday, Voracova was deported from the country. 

“I feel good for him, that he won [in] the court,” Voracova said of Djokovic on BBC Radio 5 Live, as quoted on The Telegrap. “[But] I feel a little bit frustrated for me, that the lawyers and my advisors who were there with me didn’t apply for court too, but I also understand because Novak hired his lawyers so he had to also pay for this. 

“I think this was the main issue why I couldn’t go [to] court and apply for the same.”

Voracova was caught by surprise

Voracova had no idea she was about to get interrogated and ultimately deported from the country. 

“I was there almost for a week in Melbourne and on Friday I was actually planning to go to another tournament, so I board[ed] my flight, because everything was ready, and they just came to my hotel,” said Voracova.

“First they told me when they came to my room that they want[ed] just some explanation about my exemption, that it would take around an hour.” 

Voracova claimed she was given only 10 minutes to explain why the Australian authorities should let her stay in the country. 

“I had to defend myself in 10 minutes after questioning why I should stay in the country,” Voracova said.

“I had someone there, but they couldn’t really go to the process, they just sat next to me and they were not allowed to give me any advice during the questioning. It was really tough.”
