Goran Ivanisevic, ATP number one coach Novak Djokovic, reported that he failed a COVID-19 test three weeks after he caught the controversial tournament that the tennis player organized last June.
“After two negative and two positive tests, my favorite came, the fifth set. And you know that in the fifth I have always been tough,” Ivanisevic said on his Instagram account.
“Finally negative; and finally freedom after three weeks of isolation,” said the Croatian ex-tennis player, winner of Wimbledon in 2001.
In the Adria Tour charity tournament, organized by Djokovic, several players and coaches tested positive, including number one himself, who has been criticized for ignoring precautionary measures during the event.
The tournament was played in Belgrade on June 13 and 14 and then on June 20 and 21 in Zadar in front of thousands of spectators, without the physical distance necessary to prevent infection.
