Djokovic’s fellow ATP Tour players Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki, as well as several non-playing staff members, including Djokovic’s coach Goran Ivanisevic, also tested positive.

Although they were asymptomatic, Djokovic and his wife vowed to go into self-isolation and now 10 days later they tested negative.

“Novak Djokovic and his wife Jelena are negative for COVID-19. That was shown by the results of the PCR tests that both had in Belgrade,” a statement from his media team said.
