Novak Djokovic, the world’s No. 1 ranked men’s tennis player, has tested positive for COVID-19.
Djokovic was tested on Monday. He announced that he and his wife tested positive on Tuesday.
Djokovic has been heavily criticized over the past several days for organizing a charity tennis tournament, the Adria Tour, in Croatia while the coronavirus is still surging around the world. The Adria Tour operated with no masks and no social distancing requirements, and nearly 4,000 fans attended the Serbian leg of the tournament. Players were seen embracing after matches and going out for nights on the town, which were organized by Djokovic.
The Adria Tour’s final was canceled on Sunday after three players — world No. 19 Grigor Dimitrov, No. 33 Borna Coric and ATP pro Viktor Troicki — all announced that they had tested positive for the coronavirus after taking part in the event.
