Djokovic: I am extremely disappointed, but I respect the verdict
The best tennis player in the world Novak Djokovic lost the case before The Federal Court of Australia, and the decision of the three-member council was unanimous, was announced on Sunday just before eight o'clock Central European Time.
Immediately after the decision, Djokovic made a statement to "The Age"
- I want to give a short statement to address the outcome of today's hearing in Court. I will now take some time to rest and recover before making any further comments. I am extremely disappointed.
I'm uncomfortable that the focus of the past few weeks has been on me and I hope that now we can all focus on the game and the tournament that I love. I would like to wish the players, the tournament officials, the staff, the volunteers and the fans all the best for the tournament. Finally, I would like to thank my family, friends, team, fans and fellow Serbs for their continued support. You were a great source of strength for me - said Djokovic.
