Australian Open: Croatian coach in same case as Djokovic expelled

Filip Serdarusic, who had benefited, like Novak Djokovic, from a medical exemption to enter Australian soil for the Australian Open, was expelled from the country.

Croatian tennis coach Filip Serdarusic, who had benefited, like Novak Djokovic, from a medical exemption to enter Australia, estimated this Saturday that he had been expelled due to the controversies surrounding the world number 1.

Arrived in Australia with his brother Nino Serdarusic (number 246 world), before Novak Djokovic, the Croatian coach told the regional site Sportklub.rs to have been summoned by the Australian authorities the evening of the arrival of the Serb , whose visa has been canceled twice and who is awaiting the outcome of his situation in Melbourne. “If they arrested him, then they had to arrest us too,” explained Serdarusic, whose brother ultimately did not qualify for the Australian Open.
