There should have been more clarity around Novak Djokovic not being able to enter Australia without a Covid-19 vaccination.  

Djokovic is in a Melbourne quarantine facility awaiting a Federal Court hearing on his deportation on Monday.  

The tennis star was granted a medical exemption by the Victoria State Government, but when he landed - officials found a medical exemption wasn't permitted.  

Sydney Morning Herald sports writer Peter Fitzsimons told Tim Dower Djokovic is the main culprit -- but the government should've made the vaccination requirement clear.
