BELGRADE, Jul 2 (Reuters) – Novak Djokovic and his wife Jelena tested negative for COVID-19 nine days after it was revealed that they were infected, the world tennis number one communications team said on Thursday.
Djokovic, along with Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki, tested positive after playing on the Adria Tour, an exhibition tournament hosted by the 17-time Grand Slam tournament champion.
“Novak Djokovic and his wife Jelena tested negative for COVID-19, as evidenced by the most recent test in Belgrade. They did not experience symptoms of the virus,” according to the statement.
“They spent the last 10 days in self-isolation after returning from Zadar (in Croatia), after respecting all protocols and security measures,” he added.
