After Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric, Viktor Trociki, among others, tested positive for Covid-19, it only made sense that the big announcement - re: Novak Djokovic - was coming soon...and it did, with Djokovic announcing yesterday that he and his wife both tested positive. This comes after a run at the Djokovic-led Adria Tour, an Eastern European tour of tennis events that came under scrutiny for a severe lack of safety and safe-distancing protocol. Let's hope that this helps underscore the continued need for careful and deliberate precautionary measures against too-soon a return to normal. And maybe that Djokovic learns to respect medical advice a bit more.
