Novak Djokovic had organised the Adria Tour, a series of exhibition matches in the Balkan nations, to aid in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Djokovic was among 4 players to test positive for COVID-19 at the Adria Tour, leading to the cancellation of the event.
Novak Djokovic and his wife Jelena Djokovic have returned negative in their latest COVID-19 test. The news comes a week after the duo tested positive on returning to Serbia from the second leg of the Adria Tour in Zadar, Croatia.
As reported by the Serbian newspaper Blic, in their second PCR test for COVID-19 which the duo undertook on 1 July, both Novak Djokovic and Jelena Djokovic tested negative for the virus that has wreaked havoc all across the globe.
This should come as a modicum of relief for the embattled World No. 1. Novak Djokovic has borne the brunt of criticism from players, tennis experts and fans for his ill-fated Adria Tour where four tennis players, including himself, tested positive for COVID-19 – leading to the cancellation of the exhibition tournament.
