Djokovic stated, “ I am not gonna go to America if I don’t have permission. The Australian saga for me was of course not pleasant at all. Still lot of people think that I forced my way and try to come in with no papers and permission, which is not true. It was actually proven in the court case, so I would never go into a country where I don’t have permission to travel.

He also added, “ So I would love to come back to Australia, I love Australia, I had the best grand slams result in that country. So hopefully I will be there because I want to be there. And I also want to be in America and everywhere where I can possibly play. I am a professional Tennis player, I don’t go into politics, I don’t go into anything else because that does not interest me.”

“There’s so much higher levels that we can reach with even more investment from back home,” forward Kayla McCoy said.

“So we’re kind of excited to see what comes from us qualifying again because not a lot of people thought we could do it again. I think it kind of solidified us into this position and now people know that that we’re for real and will begin to invest a bit more.”
