Zagreb: Two days after World No.1 Novak Djokovic tested positive for COVID-19, his coach and a former Wimbledon champion from Croatia, Goran Ivanisevic has been also tested positive for the virus. Ivanisevic had earlier twice tested negative before falling in the line on the third time. The 48-year-old took to Instagram on Friday (June 26) to inform about the development.

“Unfortunately … I have just found out that I tested positive to Covid-19,” Ivanisevic said on Instagram. “I feel good and I don’t have any symptoms,” said the Croat and asked everyone who has been in close contact with him to take good care of themselves and their loved ones. “I will continue to self-isolate,” he said adding that he had tested negative twice in the past 10 days.

Besides coaching Djokovic, Ivanisevic was the director of the now-abandoned Adria Tour which led to several top players becoming infected with the Coronavirus. Djokovic, Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki all tested positive after taking part in the second leg of the event held in Zadar, on Croatia’s Adriatic coast, last Sunday (June 21).

Players had embraced across the net, played basketball and even danced in a nightclub the week in the first leg played in Belgrade. Djokovic was widely criticised for hosting the charity tournament. “Everybody is smart now, and they are attacking Novak. He tried to do a great thing, a humanitarian thing. We were locked down for three months. He organized this tour,” he said.
