The Adria Tour was an exhibition event that was started by Novak Djokovic. While many people enjoyed watching the event, it had some negative effects. Many players including The Serb got infected with the coronavirus. This led to many people criticizing Novak. However, former British number one Annabel Croft has just defended him.
Annabel Croft Talks About Novak Djokovic
In a recent interview with Talksport, Annabel Croft talked about the Adria Tour which was started by Novak Djokovic. While many people criticized him, she felt that he was trying to do the right thing.
“I believe he was trying to do the right thing. He was trying to put tennis back in front of the public and at that time Serbia wasn’t having a lot of cases, but I think it was some of the stuff that went out on social media where he was dancing in a nightclub, they were taking their shirts off and hugging, and on-court they were hugging and greeting each other. Then, of course, things got bad, some of the players tested positive and he himself came down with it with his wife,” said Croft.
Croft went on to say that the entire incident didn’t do very well for Novak publicly even though the Serbian government allowed the exhibition to take place. However, right now, Novak is going to have other things on his mind because the ATP Tour is resuming soon.
The Serbian is going to be preparing so that he can play his best tennis to get closer to achieving one of his biggest goals – becoming the GOAT of tennis. And to do this he needs to hold one record – that of the most Grand Slams.
After winning the 2020 Australian Open, the Serb is just three Slams away from equaling the record. He definitely wants to get closer and he could do that at this year’s US Open. Sadly, his participation is in doubt as he was very critical about the restrictions at the event. But hopefully, he will still play the event and more importantly, win it.
