The court case was only about the visa cancellation and the way it was done. Not on the facts.

Novak's documents are stilll not convincing and he probably faked getting Covid

Australia's gov could still rescinds his visa and deport him. They have until tomorrow. If they do he'll be banned from entering Australia for 3 years.

If his name was John or Alessandro, if he was English or Italian, he'd have a lifetime fame and west would adore and love him. But it was a humiliation for them that a random guy came and climbed the ladders, winning against best players of the generation. Plus, he's a humble guy, quite funny too, despite his retarded points of view regarding many of things. He donated millions, and even donated huge amounts for countries struggling with Covid. He even accepted a pay cut so money would be distributed evenly among those who lost in earlier stages. So not only he wiped floor with biggest tennis stars but he did great things outside of the sport too. What he did in his career is far beyond impressive. The worst part about him is his wife, he's just insanely annoying and stupid.
It's funny that you genuinely believe that is the reason why he isn't universally loved. Inferiority complex?

English people for example love an underdog and will always cheers them on. Someone with a bit of personality, even better. A prime example of both would be Goran Ivanisevic. Djokovic is about as endearing as old dishwater. A machine in every sense of the word - unbelievable player, but I promise you not one person here cares where he is from, or could even point to Serbia or Switzerland on a map to compare him with Federer.
