German tennis player Alexander Zverev confirmed that he and his team members tested negative for coronavirus on Monday.
“I have just received the news that my team and I have tested negative for COVID-19. I deeply apologize to anyone that I have potentially put at risk by playing the tour. I will proceed to follow the self-isolating guidelines advised by our doctors. As an added precaution, my team and I will continue with regular testing. I wish everyone who has tested positive a speedy recovery. Stay safe,” Zverev wrote on Twitter.
Both the players had taken part in the charity tennis tournament which was organised by Novak Djokovic. Djokovic was criticized from across the world for going ahead for Adria tour amid COVID-19.
The final of the Adria Tour in Zadar has been cancelled as Grigor Dimitrov tested positive for the virus.
The Adria Tour consented by the Novak Djokovic Foundation and featured Djokovic, Austrian Dominic Thiem, Bulgarian star Grigor Dimitrov and Croatian pair Borna Coric and Marin Cilic.
