As world number one Novak Djokovic tested positive for coronavirus and Nick Kyrgios slammed the Serbian for going ahead with Adria Tour. Djokovic is being criticised from all corners for going ahead with Adria Tour and then not following social distancing guidelines. The world number one Djokovic has now joined Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric, and Viktor Troicki in testing positive for COVID-19.

Kyrgios retweeted a video of tennis stars including Djokovic dancing around in a nightclub, saying the act takes the cake for being the most irresponsible. “Don’t @ me for anything I’ve done that has been ‘irresponsible’ or classified as ‘stupidity’ – this takes the cake,” Kyrgios tweeted.

It is not the first time that Kyrgios slammed Djokovic for going ahead with the tournament. Earlier, the Australian had described the decision to go ahead with the competition as “bone-headed”. There has been severe criticism for Djokovic as during the Adria tour, planners were seen shaking hands, hugging, and then flouting social distancing guidelines.
