FREE AT LAST After two negative and two positive tests, I've finally tested negative again and am free to leave Zadar after one month. Feels like I won it in five… Huge thanks to all the doctors and everyone who made my quarantine in Zadar nice and pleasant. Wish everyone who tested positive a speedy recovery! POBJEDA U PET SETOVA Nakon dva negativna i dva pozitivna testa, došao je na red moj omiljeni, peti set. A znate da sam uvijek bio nezgodan u petom setu… Napokon negativan i napokon mogu na slobodu nakon tri tjedna izolacije. Veliko hvala @falkensteiner_hotels i osoblju koje mi je kuhalo i nosilo hranu, posebno @komlenicljubica Veliko hvala i doktorima na brizi, a posebno hvala i jednom ludom Šibenčaninu, prepoznat će se sam! Zadre, hvala ti što si mi mjesec dana bio sjajan domaćin, sad smo se zbližili na još posebniji način. Vidimo se u nekim ljepšim okolnostima, ali ipak ne tako skoro 😂 Čuvajte se, ljudi, a svim zaraženima što brži oporavak! 🙏🏻
Ivanisevic was among those infected with Coronavirus during Novak Djokovic’s Adria Tour.
The 48-year-old, who joined Djokovic’s coaching staff last year, was also the tournament director of the Zadar leg of the Adria Tour. Apart from Ivanisevic, four players – Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric, Viktor Troicki and Djokovic—had also contracted the virus, rocking the tennis world trying to inch back to life.
Ivanisevic had defended Djokovic, who was widely criticized for organizing a tournament without any health protocols or social distancing measures.
“Everybody is smart now, and they are attacking Novak,” Ivanisevic, a former Wimbledon champion told The New York Times.
“He tried to do a great thing, a humanitarian thing. We were locked down for three months. He organized this tour. The players came in Belgrade and we had good tennis and a good atmosphere. Everything in Serbia and everything in Croatia was done with the recommendations by the government.”
Most of the players are free of the virus and Djokovic and Troicki are reportedly training in Serbia.
