Tennis world is not happy with the Adria Tour charity event which was led by Serbian legend Novak Djokovic. The event resulted in the spread of the virus amongst the tennis fraternity as Grigor Dimitrov, Viktor Troicki, Borna Coric, and Djokovic himself was tested positive. Also, Grigor’s coach and Novak’s fitness trainers have been infected.
Leading to the same, Argentine tennis professional Guido Pella criticized Novak’s initiative of the charity event which brought no good to the society. Instead of raising money, the event has put numerous lives in danger.
“You cannot do something like that out of respect for what he is experiencing the world. There is no need to be indifferent to what is happening. Beyond his intentions, Djokovic crossed a line. He played with the health of those who led and those who attended the tournament. Djokovic disrespected the world of tennis,” Pella told TYC Sports.
The players were also witnessed partying amid the pandemic vibes, and Pella was completely against such kind of activities during these tough times of living. It has put numerous lives in danger and it is equivalent to committing a crime. Reportedly, the owner of the club where Novak partied has also been tested positive.
“Filtering videos of him dancing in leather in a bowling alley does nothing. I don’t know how Djokovic is going to get out of this. The cost of the tournament he put together is very high. What he put at risk is greater than his charitable action. They threatened the health of millions,” Pella added.
Novak’s wife Jelena has also been infected with the virus, but thankfully their children Stefan and Tara are safe. The Serbian legend has apologized for his wrong decision to host the Adria Tour event amid the pandemic. And admitted that he and his team have committed a blunder.
