Ten days after Novak Djokovic and his wife tested positive for the novel coronavirus, the two are now clear of it, his team announced on Thursday.
After hosting the exhibition Adria Tour in Serbia and Croatia that didn’t observe social distancing, the world’s top-ranked player received criticism for not taking the virus seriously enough. Others who took part in the event, like Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki, tested positive for the virus as well after video revealed a wild, tournament-organized party.
“Novak Djokovic and his wife Jelena are negative for COVID-19. That was shown by the results of the PCR tests that both had in Belgrade,” his media team said in a statement.
Djokovic and his wife, who didn’t have symptoms, remained in Serbia after the positive tests, staying in isolation. His coach, Goran Ivanisevic, also tested positive.
Djokovic, 33, was ripped by Nick Kyrgios over the tournament. Djokovic’s father Srdjan blamed Dimitrov for the coronavirus cluster at the tournament, accusing him of arriving sick.
