Men’s world number one tennis player Novak Djokovic released another apology on Tuesday (June 23), after testing positive for coronavirus COVID-19, saying it was too early to host anything like the Adriatic Tour. Jelena, Djokovic ‘s wife, also tested positive for the virus but his kids tested negative.
“Hi everyone-we are back in Belgrade and I tested positive for COVID-19 as well as for Jelena. The children tested negative. We will stay in self-isolation for the next 14 days and repeat the test within 5 days,” Djokovic said in the post.

“I’m so deeply sorry our tournament has caused harm. We’ve done everything the organizers and I’ve done over the past month with pure heart and sincere intentions. We thought the tournament met all the health protocols and our region’s health seemed in good condition to finally unite people for philanthropic reasons. We’ve been wrong and it’s been too soon. I can’t say enough how sorry I am for this.
Earlier, Croatia`s Borna Coric, Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov and Viktor Troicki had tested coronavirus positive after playing in Djokovic`s Adria Tour exhibition tournament which was cancelled after Dimitrov tested COVID-19 positive.
