Novak Djokovic could be sent home from Australia in a matter of hours.
His legal team are currently working on an appeal but have a small window to lodge it.
Australian journalist Shane McInnes told the BBC: “If they don’t put in an application for an appeal Novak Djokovic could be out of Australian in the next three to four hours.
“Most of the flights to Europe via the Middle East leave late at night out of Melbourne. He would be on one of those if he does not decide to appeal tonight.
“That’s the decision Djokovic has to make; does he go home or fight for the narritive no-one will every forgot.”
