News24xx.com - After testing for coronavirus on Sunday, Grigor Dimitrov makes a big step in his career. Dimitrov said that he has positive and decided to pull out of an exhibition tournament which also featured world number one, Novak Djokovic. From his Instagram's account, Dimitrov wrote "I want to reach out and let my fans and friends know that I tested positive back in Monaco for Covid-19."
"I want to make sure anyone who has been in contact with me during these past days gets tested and takes the necessary precautions," added Dimitrov.
The world number 19 also wrote, "I am so sorry for any harm I might have caused. I am back home now and recovering."
Last weekend, Dimitrov, 29, took part in the Adria Tour event in Belgrade with Djokovic, world number three Dominic Thiem, and Alexander Zverev, ranked seven.
He also played in the second leg of the Balkans tournament in Zadar on Croatia's Adriatic coast on Saturday. However, he withdrew after losing to Borna Coric, complaining of feeling unwell. Later on Sunday, the final between Djokovic and Russia's Andrey Rublev was immediately canceled as a precaution.
Former Wimbledon champion Goran Ivanisevic, the tournament director of the Zadar event, said in remarks quoted by local media that it was the best possible decision.
"We have to take care of the security of all involved. Those who were in contact with Grigor will be tested."
Zverev and former US Open winner Marin Cilic were also in the Croatia line-up.
