“Although I was alone in detention in Australia, and faced many problems and challenges, I did not feel lonely,” he said.

“I had huge support, primarily from my family, all of the close people in my life, [the] entire Serbian nation, many people with good intentions from the region and the world.”

“I haven’t spoken in public in regards to the events that happened in Australia, and this is the first time that I have come out in public,” Djokovic said.

“Please be patient because, in the next seven to 10 days, I will address the media in more detail with my version, stories and everything that happened in Australia.”
