“The moment we arrived in Belgrade we went to be tested,” Djokovic said in a statement on Tuesday, adding that he was not showing any symptoms. “My result is positive, just as Jelena’s (wife), while the results of our children are negative.
“I am extremely sorry for each individual case of infection. I hope that it will not complicate anyone’s health situation and that everyone will be fine. I will remain in self-isolation for the next 14 days, and repeat the test in five days.”
The organizer stated that the rest of the Adria Tour has been cancelled, the two-day match held in Banja Luka, Bosnia on July 3-4 and the Bosnian Damir Zu in Sarajevo on July 5 Muher’s original exhibition competition has been cancelled.
There are 13092 registered cases in Serbia. The pandemic resulted in 263 deaths, but Serbia and Croatia relaxed the blockade measures a few weeks before the game, and players are not obliged to abide by the social alienation rules of the two countries.
The game witnessed a crowded grandstand in the opening game of Belgrade. Players embraced the net, played basketball, posed for photos and participated in press conferences.
Djokovic, 33, organised nights out in Belgrade for the players and pictures and videos of him dancing with the other participants at his event were posted on social media.
“Prayers up to all the players that have contracted Covid- 19,” said Nick Kyrgios, retweeting a video of the players dancing shirtless in Belgrade.
“Don’t @ me for anything I’ve done that has been ‘irresponsible’ or classified as ‘stupidity’ – this takes the cake,” said the temperamental Australian, who was placed on probation by the men’s ATP Tour over his behaviour last year.
