Novak Djokovic made some alterations in his coaching team last year. Marco Panichi was again added to his staff as a replacement for Gebhard Phil Gritsch. Panichi had earlier worked with the star for two seasons, which is why they were already familiar with each other.

Unfortunately, the second phase of the Adria Tour’s Zadar got suspended because Grigor Dimitrov tested positive for COVID-19. Subsequently, the medical team examined the 22 people with whom he had direct contact, and three of them – including Novak Djokovic’s coach Panichi tested positive for COVID-19.

Reported by Sportsklub, along with Marco Panichi, the tests of Croatian tennis player Borna Coric, Dimitrov’s coach Kristijan Groh have also produced positive results.

About Djokovic, he will take the test as soon as he will return to Belgrade. As of now, he is not feeling any symptoms. Especially given the fact he has been in close contact with Dimitrov, the two playing basketball against each other. The chances of him having positive results are quite possible.
