The fallout from Novak Djokovic’s Adria Tour continued Friday with the announcement that the Serb’s coach, former Wimbledon champion Goran Ivanisevic, has tested positive for the Coronavirus.
Ivanisevic was on the mic Sunday to announce the Adria Tour final in Zadar had to be cancelled. He also stated he had tested negative. However, the Croatian twice tested negative but has now turned up positive. Though he has no symptoms, he said.

Ivanisevic joins Djokovic, his wife Jelena, Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric, two other coaches and Viktor Troicki and his wife as known positives from the Adria Tour.
As of now, four members of the Djokovic camp have now tested positive:
Goran Ivanisevic (coach)
Marko Paniki (fitness)
Djokovic’s main coach, Marian Vajda, was not part of the tour.
The fact that Ivanisevic did test negative twice before his positive is concerning since Alexander Zverev, Marin Cilic and Dominic Thiem all tested negative as well. While Zverev and Cilic have opted to self-quarantine, Thiem continues to play exos.

Nažalost, nakon dva negativna testa u posljednjih 10 dana, upravo sam saznao rezultate današnjeg, trećeg testa i on je pozitivan na Covid-19. Osjećam se dobro i nemam nikakvih simptoma. Želim obavijestiti sve koji su bili u kontaktu sa mnom na činjenicu da sam Covid-pozitivan i zamoliti ih da poduzmu sve potrebne korake da zaštite sebe i svoje bližnje. Ja nastavljam s ranije započetom samoizolacijom. Želim svim zaraženima što skoriji oporavak.
