Goran Ivanisevic becomes latest member of Adria Tour to test positive for coronavirus
Former Wimbledon winner Goran Ivanisevic, a member of Novak Djokovic’s coaching set-up, has joined the list people who have tested positive following the Adria Tour.
The exhibition tournament, Djokovic’s brainchild, was launched to raise funds for humanitarian projects in the Balkan region and was due to run from June 12-July 5.
However, it was called off earlier this week after ATP Tour players Djokovic, Grigor Dimtirov, Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki all returned positive coronavirus tests. The wives of Djokovic and Troicki, and two non-playing staff members also tested positive.
And now Djokovic’s coach Ivanisevic has also confirmed via social media that he tested positive for Covid-19.

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.
“Unfortunately, after two negative tests in the last 10 days, I have just found out that I have tested positive for Covid-19. I feel good and don’t have any symptoms,” he wrote.
“I would like to inform everyone who has been in contact with me that I tested positive and ask them to take extra good care of themselves and their loved ones.
“I will continue to self-isolate as I have been doing already. I wish everyone who got infected a speedy recovery.”
