The coronavirus was tested positive by NOVAK DJOKOVIC.
In a tweet, the world number one shared the diagnosis, saying that his wife Jelena had contracted the virus as well.
The diagnosis comes after Djokovic played in the last two weekends of the Adriatic Circuit.
On Sunday, when the final was canceled after it was announced that Grigor Dimitrov had contracted the deadly COVID-19 virus, the tournament, held in Belgrade, Serbia, and Zadar, Croatia, was thrown into turmoil.
A quote from Djokovic said, “The moment we arrived in Belgrade, we got tested,” Djokovic said. My findings are good, just like Jelena’s, while the outcomes of our children are negative.
With a pure heart and sincere thoughts, we did everything we did last month. The aim of our tournament was to bring the entire region together and spread a message of unity and compassion.
“The tour was designed to help both established and aspiring tennis players from Southeastern Europe gain access to competitive tennis while the various tours are on hold due to the COVID-19 situation,” he said.
“It was born with a philanthropic idea to direct all funds raised to people in need and it warmed my heart to see how strongly everyone responded,” he said.
“We organized the tournament at a time when the virus was weakened and believed the conditions were met to host the tour,” he said.
The virus is still there, sadly, and it is a new reality that we are still learning to cope with and live with.
“I hope the situation will ease with time and we can all regain our lives as they were.
With any single case of infection, I am so sorry. I hope the health condition won’t escalate for everyone and everybody will be fine.
“I will remain in self-isolation for the next 14 days and repeat the test in five days.”
