Someone, on social media, ironically but not too much, has already renamed it Corona Tour. After Grigor Dimitrov, also Croatian Borna Coric positive result at Covid-19. The 23-year-old from Zagreb, who had also played against Dimitrov in Zadar, made this known directly: I wanted to inform you that I tested positive for COVID-19. I want to make sure that anyone who has come in contact with me in the last few days undergoes the test! I am truly sorry for the damage that I may have caused. I feel good and have no symptoms. Stay safe and healthy, Coric wrote on social media.
IS according to Serbian media, two other protagonists of theAdria Tour, organized by Novak Djokovic (through his brother Djordje) and played with open doors (two stages so far, in Belgrade and Zadar) would have had the same result from the test: Kristijan Groh, coach who is part of the Dimitrov team, and Marco Panichi, Italian athletic trainer of Djokovic. What about Nole? Apparently he would have returned immediately to Belgrade to undergo the exams, without taking them directly to Zadar.
Top players partying half-naked together, packed stadium crowds. No laws were broken at the weekend? S Belgrade event, and no examples set. The US Open, due to be confirmed tomorrow, will of course by very different. https://t.co/c9K5G7zmog

Dimitrov, Coric, Djokovic and other protagonists of the Adria Tour took part in the days of the tournament to collateral initiatives, including a meeting with Zadar’s children, a basketball game (in which Dimitrov played with Djokovic) and an evening at the disco that made much discussion. The organization of the Adria Tour advised all those who found themselves at close range with Dimitrov (and had not yet learned of Coric’s positivity) to self-isolate for 14 days. The positiveness of Dimitrov and Coric triggered various reactions in the other tennis players not engaged in the Adria Tour. The Australian one was extremely tough Nick Kyrgios: Here’s what happens when you ignore all protocols. This is not a joke. Capitalized.
Boneheaded decision to go ahead with the? Exhibition? speedy recovery fellas, but that’s what happens when you disregard all protocols. This IS NOT A JOKE. https://t.co/SUdxfijkbK
