Alexander Zverev was one of the participants in the Adria Tour 2020, the charity itinerant tournament created by Novak Djokovic, which involved many stars of the Game. However, during the matches in Serbia and Croatia, the security protocols to protect themselves from the virus were not respected, and many protagonists were infected.
Among them Novak Djokovic and his wife Jelena, Nole's coach Goran Ivanisevic, Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki. Many players have been harshly criticized: they have apologized and placed themselves in isolation.
Zverev also decided to isolate himself, although his swab was negative. After the cancellation of the Adria Tour and all the controversies that followed, Zverev shared a post on Twitter, where he announced his self-isolation: "I have just received the news that my team and I have tested negative for COVID-19.
I deeply apologize to anyone that I have potentially put at risk by playing this tour. I will proceed to follow the self-isolating guidelines advised by our doctors. As an added precaution, my team and I will continue with regular testing.
I wish everyone who has tested positive a speedy recovery. Stay safe. "
