Tennis star Novak Djokovic is going to be deported from Australia after a judge rejected his appeal on Sunday. Djokovic's visa was canceled for the second time on Friday by the country's immigration minister "on health and good order grounds."

"I am extremely disappointed with the ruling to dismiss my application for judicial review of the decision to cancel my visa, which means I cannot stay in Australia and participate in the Australian Open," the world tennis no. 1 stated after the verdict. "I am uncomfortable that the focus of the past weeks has been on me and I hope that we can all now focus on the game and tournament I love," he said, adding he will take "some time to rest and to recuperate" before making further comments.
