Behind-the-scenes documents will reveal never-before-seen footage of Djokovic’s scandal

Djokovic, who has not been vaccinated, had his visa revoked on January 6 shortly after landing in Australia amid questions about whether a vaccine exemption would allow him to enter.

Daily mail reports that the Netlfix documentary will be made by London-based Box To Box Films and Executive Producer is James Gay Rees, the man behind the popular F1 car Drive to Survive.

One team is supposed to follow the tennis circuit throughout the season.

According to the report, they will be given access to areas such as the locker room and treatment area with consent and into the player’s lounge.

On Monday, a judge significantly reversed the decision to revoke Djokovic’s visa and ordered his release from custody.

But the government has not ruled out further action.

There is still the possibility that the country’s immigration minister could cancel his visa for a second time just days before the tournament begins.

It comes as bombshell photos emerged showing him traveling before setting off for Australia.

Before Christmas, Andy Murray was asked if his sport would lend material.

He told Eurosport: “A lot of people have been talking about Drive to Survive. I’ve watched a few episodes myself, I enjoyed it and stuff like that would be really good for tennis.

‘I think the sport has a huge benefit (but) I don’t think tennis is open enough to allow such access. It’s a tough one because it’s great.

“A lot of players will (support that) but you also need to trust the people who are filming.

“Given it’s well done and there’s a level of respect and trust there between the athletes and the people who are filming, I think it can be unbelievably positive.”

The decision on Djokovic’s visa revocation was again delayed yesterday after his team made “long” submissions supporting his case – but the final call will be made show up today.

Abul Rizvi, former Deputy Minister of Immigration, claimed officers could cause trouble at the tennis court to arrest Djokovic if his visa was canceled again.

Mr Rizvi told Channel 10’s The Project: “The cancellation notice (will be) made by the Australian Border Force (officers) who usually wear very dark uniforms and often bring guns to his hotel. Djokovic or on the tennis court.”
