Djokovic Tests Negative for Virus Days After Troubled Tournament
(Bloomberg) -- World tennis no. 1 Novak Djokovic said his second Covid-19 test came back negative after he announced last week that he had contracted the coronavirus.
Both Djokovic and his wife Jelena are now virus-free, according to their polymerase chain reaction, or PCR, tests, conducted in the Serbian capital Belgrade.
Djokovic, Bulgaria’s Grigor Dimitrov -- a semifinalist in the 2019 U.S. Open -- and Borna Coric of Croatia tested positive after the exhibition Adria Tour, which was cut short.
The Djokovices have had no symptoms but remain in self-isolation in Serbia “following all the protocols and security measures related to Covid-19,” their public relations agency said in email.
