Srdjan Djokovic, father of the current number one in the ATP world, has wanted to take any kind of responsibility from his son on the coronavirus infections that have occurred after the 'Adria Tour' and has pointed to the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov as the possible origin of everything.
“Why did this happen? Because this person probably got sick, who knows where, we don't know, but he had it”Srdjan Djokovic told the Serbian network 'RTL', without specifically mentioning the name of the Bulgarian.
The father of 'Nole' criticizes Dimitrov for the test on his return to Monaco and not in Zadar (Croatia). “I don't think it's correct, but what are we going to do to him. He has caused great damage to Croatia, to us as a family and to Serbia”, he asserted.
Srdjan Djokovic remarked that his son “is not well” because of what has happened. “Of course it doesn't feel good, but the situation is as it is. We have to come out of this stronger, to understand that this has to happen and to protect ourselves in some way, “he said.
Grigor Dimitrov revealed his coronavirus positive this past Sunday, after spending the last two weeks participating in the Adria Tour organized by the winner of 18 'Grand Slams', both in Belgrade and in Zadar. Subsequently, the positive by Croatian Borna Coric and Serbian Viktor Troicki, and yesterday by Djokovic himself and his wife Jelena.
“I am very sorry for each individual case of infection. I hope it does not complicate anyone's health situation and that everyone is well. I will remain in self-isolation for the next 14 days and will repeat the test in five days, “said the Belgrade leader in a statement.
“What they are writing about my son is terrible”
Dijana Djokovic, the tennis player's mother, also wanted to comment on this, saying that despite testing positive, Novak is fine. “We are all fine. Just because Novak tested positive does not mean he is sick. He is a young and healthy boy, reason why it supports it better. Anyway I think this virus is coming to an end, so these are some of the coronavirus 'outbreaks' that are not as strong as at first. That is why he is well, “he said in statements collected by the Serbian newspaper Blic.
Djokovic's mother confessed that the tests have also been done after attending the events of her son and that they have tested negative for coronavirus. “We did the test because we were there and we tested negative. We are doing well and we want the rest to be in good health as well.”
Dijana Djokovic also charged against the media and the news they have published in recent days about her son. “It is terrible and terrifying what they are writing about Novak, but we are used to it. It was as if they could not wait, sign that Novak obviously bothers them “
