Andy Murray has taken a shot at Nigel Farage after the British politician flew to Serbia to visit Novak Djokovic’s brother on the night of the tennis star’s court appearance in Australia. Farage posted a video on his Twitter account where he walks into what appears to be Djokovic’s trophy room.
He captioned the video: “In the trophy room with Novak’s brother Djordje.”
At the same time Djokovic was making his way to court on the other side of the world in Melbourne to try and gain entry to the county.
However, three-time Grand Slam winner Murray has taken a shot at Farage, who has campaigned for tougher borders in the UK for many years yet is taking strangely Djokovic’s side in this fight.
Murray tweeted: “Please record the awkward moment when you tell them you’ve spent most of your career campaigning to have people from Eastern Europe deported.”
Earlier in the day Murray was asked his opinion about the whole Djokovic fiasco and he gave the perfect response.
“I think everyone is shocked by it [the circumstances] to be honest,” he said.
“I’m going to say two things on it just now. The first thing is that I hope that Novak is OK. I know him well, and I’ve always had a good relationship with him and I hope that he’s OK.
“The second thing I’ll say on it … it’s really not good for tennis at all, and I don’t think it’s good for anyone involved.
“I think it’s really bad.”
Djokovic’s long-term rival Rafael Nadal had some sympathy with his fellow 20-time Grand Slam champion.
“In some way I feel sorry for him,” Nadal said. “But at the same time, he knew the conditions since a lots of months ago, so he makes his own decision.”
Djokovic’s father, Srdjan, addressed a crowd outside the detention hotel earlier in the day and said: “This is happening because we are only a small part of the world, but we are proud people.
“They can’t break us. Novak is the personification of freedom, everything human that one man contains in himself. Shame on them!”
