Alexander Zverev was among the players who competed at the Adria Tour two and three weekends ago in Belgrade and Serbia. With no social distancing measures, Zverev was spending time with other competitors, kids, and parents, embracing football and basketball matches and visiting the night club in Belgrade.
Before the final encounter in Zadar between Novak Djokovic and Andrey Rublev, Grigor Dimitrov had announced he tested positive for the coronavirus, which forced the organizers to cancel the title match. Soon, Borna Coric revealed the same, followed by Novak Djokovic who went home to Belgrade and stated he and his wife were positive too, canceling the rest of the Tour and sending players to their homes.
After receiving the news, Alexander Zverev made a statement about the entire situation, sharing with his fans that he had tested negative and apologizing for playing the Adria Tour and putting people at risk. The German said he would stay self-isolated but that didn't last long, with the young star spotted in a crowded club on an Instagram video posted on Sunday.
The video was placed on Instagram by German designer Philipp Plein and later deleted, with no indication when it was taken.
We are yet to hear the official statement from the three-time Masters 1000 champion who should post it as soon as possible, gathering rage from the majority of his colleagues and tennis fans.
Nick Kyrgios has not been a fan of the recent events, especially the Adria Tour, where they didn't follow strict health measures. Blasting Novak Djokovic and also the ATP Chairman Andrea Gaudenzi, whom he called a potato. As was expected, Nick posted a video about Zverev after seeing the latest controversy related to the German, calling him selfish and not understanding the fact he can't stay self-isolated for two weeks.
The ATP season should resume in Washington in early August, followed by Cincinnati and the US Open (both staged in New York), and Kitzbuhel, Madrid, Rome and Roland Garros. "So I wake up, and see more controversial things happening all over the world," Kyrgios said.
"One thing that stuck out for me was seeing Sascha Zverev again, man. How selfish can you be? If you dare to put out a tweet that you made your management write on your behalf saying you're going to self-isolate for 14-days and apologizing to the general public for putting their health at risk, at least have the audacity to stay inside for 14 days."
