Djokovic and His Wife Test Negative for Coronavirus | Right away

Novak Djokovic is no longer infected with the coronavirus. The Serb and his wife Jelena tested negative on Thursday, ten days after the couple announced they had the COVID-19 virus among their members.

The 33-year-old Djokovic announced on June 23 that he and his wife were infected with the coronavirus. The positive test was the result of his own controversial tennis tournament in Belgrade and Zadar, Croatia, which did not take into account the Corona measures.

The event was cancelled on the last day after Grigor Dimitrov tested positive for the coronavirus. It has also been announced that tennis players Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki, Djokovic’s coach and Dimitrov’s coach, are infected.

The same was true of Djokovic and his wife, who had no noticeable symptoms. The 17-time Grand Slam winner opted for home isolation after his positive test and is now healed.

Djokovic has been heavily criticized for hosting the Adriatic Tour, a series of demonstration tournaments he had devised as an alternative during this game-free period. During the tournament there was only a lot of welcome and the players did not keep a distance from each other.

The tennis season is still pending this month due to the coronary crisis, but will continue in August. The next event on the WTA Tour is the gravel tournament in Palermo (August 3) and for the men it is the hardcourt tournament in Washington, which starts on August 14.
