ATP chairman Andrea Gaudenzi has commented on Djokovic’s Adria tour which has caused some unintended consequences.
In a recent interview with New York Times the Chairman said, “I know there has been a lot of criticism, but on the other hand, we at the ATP, the U.S.T.A, and everybody, we have to be careful because we also have to be conscious that even with extreme measures, you could end up having some players testing positive.”
He further added, “it’s a little bit like when you tell your kids when they try to learn to ride the bike to wear the helmet, it’s ‘no, no, no’. And they ride the bike, they fall, and they wear the helmet. Now we all know we can get it very easily, so we’re going to be even more careful, and maybe we will have a little bit more tolerance towards the bubble,”.
He said that after having many more cases of coronavirus, the players will now be more careful.
Though the ATP is surely going to increase the safety measures at all the events. Hopefully, it will not lead to cancellation, which is what all players are worried about.
