Djokovic has organized a charity tennis tournament, the Adria Tour, in Croatia. Djokovic was heavily criticized for this event, as the event didn’t have any safety rules for COVID-19. The event operated without any masks and no rules for social distancing, with around 4,000 fans attending the tournament. The players were also seen embracing each other after the match. On top of that many, players were spotted partying in the town, which was hosted by Djokovic.

The final of the Adria Tour was canceled on Sunday after three players, Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric, and Viktor Troicki tested positive for COVID-19 after participating in the tournament.

According to the organizers, Djokovic wasn’t tested in Croatia after the cancelation of the tournament, because he didn’t have any symptoms exhibiting COVID-19.

After criticism from fans, Djokovic’s team announced that he will take a COVID-19 test on Monday in Serbia.

Djokovic has gone to say in public that he is against vaccination. There is also doubt regarding Djokovic’s participation in U.S Open this fall. However, this only happens if tournament organizers enacted “extreme” and “impossible” safety measures for the tournament.
