After news of Grigor Dimitrov and Borna Coric testing positive for Covid-19 emerged, World No.1 Novak Djokovic is on the radar after his fitness coach tested positive for the virus.
The 33-year-old Serbian had been conducting the highly-criticised Adria Tour — which concluded its first leg in Belgrade recently — but now because of the tournament, competing players have found themselves at risk.
Dimitrov was the first to reveal that he had tested positive for the virus, saying, “I want to reach out and let my fans and friends know that I tested positive for Covid-19. I am so sorry for any harm I might have caused.” On Monday, Coric, ranked No. 33 in the world, revealed on Twitter that he had tested positive for COVID-19.
Now, Djokovic’s fitness coach Marco Panichi has also tested positive for the virus, according to Serbian daily Sportski Zurnal, quoting Croatia’s health institute. Even Kristijan Groh, Dimitrov’s coach, has produced a positive result.
The tennis fraternity has hit out at the hosting of the Adria Tour, with players like Nick Kyrgios, Andy Roddick tweeting their displeasure.
