Former world No. 1 Andy Murray was glad to see Novak Djokovic leave detention as he hopes the Serb will now be able to focus on the tennis. The judge ruled in Djokovic’s favor on Monday as the Serb’s visa has been reinstated.
“I mean, obviously, you know, it’s positive that he’s not in detention anymore,” Murray said, per Sportskeeda. “You know, obviously he won in court, so, you know, that’s a positive thing for him.
Hopefully will be able to concentrate on the tennis now.” Murray suggested Djokovic has a few questions to answer. “You know, I think there are still a few questions that need to be answered around, you know, the isolation and stuff, which I’m sure we’ll hear from him in the next few days, but yeah, I mean, I’m obviously here to try and play and win tournaments,” Murray added.
Murray would rather speak about his tennis
On Tuesday, wildcard Murray saw off Viktor Durasovic 6-3 6-1 in his Sydney opener. “You know, like I said, it’s the first match that I have played here or won here in over three years, and, yeah, this is where the situations like this are frustrating for players because I want to come off and talk about my tennis and what’s happening there, not talking about situations like that,” Murray said.
“So I’m hoping that we can move on from it now. You know, like I said, he won in court, which is good. Looks like he’s going to be able to play and compete in the Australian Open, which, you know, we do want the best players there, but like I said, I think there is still a few questions to be answered.
Until that happens, tough to give a definitive opinion on everything. But like I said, positive that he’s out and practicing.”
