For the first time Novak Djokovic spoke openly of the controversial Adria Tour that placed him in the center of the scene and not precisely in the nobility of his promotion with tennis but rather as an executioner of the situation.
“We tried to organize something with the best of our intentions. Yes, there were steps that we could have taken differently, that’s clear, but am I going to be blamed forever for making a mistake? OK, if so I will accept it, because right now it is the only thing I can do. Whether it is fair or not, I do not know, but I know that our intentions were just and right, and if I had the opportunity to celebrate the Adria Tour, I would do it again ” , said to New York Times.
“I agree that we should not have done the disco. The sponsors organized it, invited the players and we felt comfortable. It was an event that was successful, we were all happy, enjoying ourselves. We did everything that was required of us, From day one we followed the rules. I understand, anyway, that when someone from Australia or the United States looked at what was happening in Serbia they would think: “My God, they are crazy, I don’t know what they are doing,” he continued.
“I honestly don’t think I did anything wrong. I feel bad for the people who got infected. Do I feel guilty for anyone who got infected in Serbia or Croatia from that point forward? Of course not. It was all. like a witch hunt. How can you blame a single person for everything that happened? “, clarified the many number one in the world.
