Melbourne opinion divided over Djokovic

The world number one still faces the threat of being detained by the federal government for a second time and deported, despite Monday's court ruling quashing the government's earlier decision to cancel his visa.

Djokovic was back in training hours after winning that court challenge, thanking the judge who released him from immigration detention on Twitter and saying he remained focused on trying to win a record 21st tennis major at next week's Australian Open.

The Australian Open begins on Jan. 17. Djokovic has won the tournament, one of tennis' four Grand Slams, for the last three years and nine times in all.
