Nick Kyrgios lambasts ‘bonehead decision’ to stage Adria Tour after two players test positive for Covid-19
Nick Kyrgios has hit out at the decision to host the Adria Tour after Grigor Dimitrov and Borna Coric tested positive for the coronavirus.
World No 1 Novak Djokovic decided to stage the Adria Tour in the Balkan region to raise funds for various regional humanitarian projects.
However, big crowds attended the tournament with a clear lack of social distancing in the stands, while the players hugged and high-fived each other when they played exhibition basketball and football events.
Djokovic shrugged off the criticism and said “we are doing what the Serbian government is telling us”.
Former world No 3 Dimitrov and current world No 33 Coric, who faced each other in Croatia on Saturday, have both since tested positive.
Kyrgios has been a vocal critic of the decision to restart tennis this year and he didn’t hide his feelings after Coric confirmed his result.
🤦🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️ 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
