ZAGREB, June 26, 2020 – Goran Ivanisevic is the latest person connected to last weekend’s Adria Tour in Zadar to test positive for coronavirus.
Ivanisevic (48) was director of the tournament organised by Novak Djokovic in Zadar last weekend which was affected by an outbreak of Covid-19.
“Unfortunately, after two negative tests in the last 10 days, I have just found out that I tested positive for Covid-19. I feel good and don’t have any symptoms. I would like to inform everyone who has been in contact with me that I tested positive and ask them to take extra good care of themselves and their loved ones. I will continue to self-isolate as I have been doing already. I wish everyone who got infected a speedy recovery,” Ivanisevic said on social media on Friday.
Grigor Dimitrov was the first player at the Adria Tour to test positive for coronavirus, with three more tennis players diagnosed after, including Croatia’s Borna Coric.
Djokovic, who returned to Serbia on Sunday, also tested positive.
“A few days have passed since I tested positive for Covid-19. I’m extremely grateful that I still feel well and don’t have any symptoms Thank you very much for all the messages of love and support I have received whilst isolating,” Coric said on Twitter on Thursday.

Croatia’s Health Minister Vili Beros said the epidemiological situation in Zadar had not deteriorated significantly but what happened at the tournament was a big warning.
Beros called on organisers of similar events to be aware of their responsibility.
“This situation was not unexpected, and the response by the epidemiological service was of crucial importance. What happened is the normality of the new normal, and our healthcare and epidemiological system is prepared. We expected such occurrences and we have a host of possible responses,” Beros told the press.
