Tennis Australia boss Craig Tiley was booed as he made his first public appearance since Novak Djokovic was deported in Melbourne today.

The crowd at Kia Arena booed Tiley as he presented retiring Aussie legend Sam Stosur with flowers after the final game of her singles career.

Tennis Australia has been blamed in the media in Australia and around the world for misinforming the world No.1 about Covid immigration criteria.

Tiley ignored the boxes and thanked Stosur for her contribution to tennis.

“Thanks for being Sam Stosur, and thank you for the difference that you have made to our great game,” he said.
