Novak Djokovic revealed on Thursday (July 2) that he and his wife have tested negative for the coronavirus or Covid-19.

The world number one had tested positive for the virus 10 days ago after playing in an exhibition series in Serbia and Croatia with zero social distancing amid the pandemic.

His media team says “Novak Djokovic and his wife Jelena are negative for COVID-19. That was shown by the results of the PCR tests that both had in Belgrade.”

The statement says both had no symptoms and that they were in self-isolation in the Serbian capital since testing positive 10 days ago.

Djokovic was the fourth player to come down with the virus after participating in matches held in Belgrade and Zadar, Croatia. The others were three-time Grand Slam semifinalist Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki._Agencies
