The best tennis players, Grigor Dimitrov and Borna Coric tested positive for the coronavirus after participating in an event that was resolved by the male player at the top of the Novak Djokovic standings.
Bulgarian Dimitrov withdrew from the regional exhibition tournament on Saturday- which had sparked criticism for lack of safety precautions.
Therefore, it was abandoned last Sunday.
“I have to … tell my fans and my teammates that I tested positively … for COVID-19,” Dimitrov wrote on Instagram on Sunday.
“I am so angry at the damage I have done … Thank you for your help and stay safe.”

Coric, who comfortably defeated Dimitrov on Saturday, discovered on Monday that he had also tested positive for COVID-19, but that he felt admirable and had no protests.
Fans who teamed up to participate in the final between Djokovic and Russia’s Andrey Rublev stormed in on Sunday when the withdrawal was announced on the sidelines.
“Incredibly, we had to settle for this option because we don’t need anyone to get the infection,” said Goran Ivanisevic, Zadar’s visiting manager and Djokovic’s mentor, who released the statement.
Djokovic’s younger brother Djordje, the leader of the transaction, said COVID-19 would bring anyone in contact with Dimitrov to justice.
“Once the news has been accepted, we will take all measures established by the Croatian government and anyone in contact with Grigor will be brought to justice,” he said at a meeting on board on Sunday.
The visit of a tennis expert suspended until mid-August in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, competed by certain big names, including Dominic Thiem, the ex-hero of the United States Open Marin Cilic and the German Alexander Zverev ‘Adria Tour: a quarter of a week of provincial competence.
With Serbia and Croatia providing block estimates long before the event, the players were not required to deal with the physical separation in the two countries and connected at the end of their matches.
Thiem won the opening phase in Belgrade, where a group of 4,000 people performed daily in the Djokovic tennis community on the Danube.
Fans in Croatia were bound by the separation rules as much as possible, which meant that the Visnjik tennis complex with a 9,000 limit was only half full for the occasion.
