The Adria Tour was an exhibition event started by Novak Djokovic. Many top players like Alexander Zverev played this event and many people certainly enjoyed watching it. Sadly, this event had some negative effects as many players including Novak got infected with the coronavirus.
Zverev was not one of them but he still apologized for putting people at risk by playing the event in a tweet. And In the same tweet, he also said that he was going to self-isolate himself. But from the video below, it does not look like he is self-isolating himself. Check it out.

Alexander Zverev Not Self-Isolating
As you can see in the above video, Alexander Zverev is at a party where there are so many people. Clearly, there are no social distancing guidelines being followed here which many will find very surprising after what happened with the Adria Tour.
Such partying reminds many of us about the parties at Novak’s exhibition event. In those parties, no one was following social distancing guidelines and many said that it was the reason why some tennis players were infected with the coronavirus.
This was disputed by people such as Goran Ivanisevic who said the virus could have spread from anywhere and not just the party. Nobody knows who is right but is not going to change the COVID-19 cases amongst the tennis players.
Many tennis players are worried about what the recent cases might mean for the ATP Tour. Some have even said that it might mean the end of the 2020 season. The ATP has not hinted that in any way but they will be expected to increase their safety measures.
Above all, every single person will be hoping that players infected will recover soon so that they will play the ATP Tour when it returns in August. Hopefully, that is exactly what happens.
