Troicki, 34, entered Janko Tipsarevic’s Eastern European Championship tournament which started in Belgrade last Monday and pulled out after learning that he and his wife tested positive.”My wife took the test on Friday and I took it on Sunday after she tested positive,” Troicki told Serbia’s Telegraf website. “Our daughter tested negative.”The ATP wished players and staff who tested positive at the event a speedy recovery and urged “strict adherence to responsible social distancing” to limit the spread of the virus.The governing body added that it will implement a variety of precautions and protocols that would be adjusted as and when dictated by the latest medical information to ensure safety at events when the tour resumes on Aug. 14.The WTA did not respond to a request for comment. Organizers of the Adria Tour could not be reached for comment.Bulgarian Dimitrov flew in to play in Djokovic’s event in Belgrade and the second leg, as did other top names like Dominic Thiem of Austria and Germany’s Alexander Zverev.Organizers of other sports looking to resume from the coronavirus shutdown will be watching developments with some trepidation as they try to find the safest way of getting competition back under way.No social distancingThe tournament witnessed packed stands during the opening leg in Belgrade, players hugging at the net, playing basketball, posing for pictures and attending press conferences together.Djokovic organized nights out in Belgrade for the players and pictures and videos of him dancing with the other participants at his event were posted on social media.With both Serbia and Croatia easing lockdown measures weeks before the event, players were not obliged to observe social distancing rules in either country.”It is recommended that anyone who has been in close contact for more than 10 minutes with the tennis player be advised to self-isolate for 14 days and to contact their doctor,” the event organizers said in a statement on Monday.With international tennis suspended, Djokovic organized the Adria Tour as a charity event to be contested over four legs across the former Yugoslavia.Djokovic’s fitness coach Marco Panichi also tested positive, Serbian daily Sportski Zurnal reported, quoting Croatia’s health institute.The men’s world number one took the test on Monday after returning to Belgrade in the morning and his test results will be announced on Tuesday, after which he is set to address the public, Serbian media reported.Zverev, Croatia’s Marin Cilic and Russian Andrey Rublev – who all played at the Adria Tour – said they tested negative for the virus but will follow self-isolation guidelines.”Boneheaded decision to go ahead with the ‘exhibition’ speedy recovery fellas, but that’s what happens when you disregard all protocols. This IS NOT A JOKE,” Australian player Nick Kyrgios said in a scathing social media post.American tennis great Chris Evert also criticized the organizers for the lack of social-distancing, saying “… total physical contact, no face masks, even the fans were without masks.. I don’t get it.”Thiem, the men’s number three, is currently playing in France in the Ultimate Tennis Showdown (UTS), which is co-owned by Serena Williams’ coach Patrick Mouratoglou.Organisers of the UTS, which also features men’s top-10 players like Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas and Italian Matteo Berrettini, posted pictures on Friday of Thiem undergoing a test after arriving at the Mouratoglou academy in Nice. Topics : Those plans, however, could need to be redrawn after three players who had featured in the Adria Tour event tested positive for the coronavirus. On Sunday Grigor Dimitrov said he had contracted the novel coronavirus.While the players did not break any Serbian or Croatian government protocols, as neither country required the athletes to maintain any social distancing, the fact that three players and some support staff caught the virus highlights the risks of athletes from different countries being in close proximity to each other.”I want to make sure anyone who has been in contact with me during the last few days gets tested,” Coric, ranked No.33 in the world, said on Twitter. “I am really sorry for any harm I might have caused. I’m feeling well and don’t have any symptoms.”Troicki played in the first leg staged at Djokovic’s tennis complex in central Belgrade from June 13-14, before Dimitrov and Coric tested positive at the second leg in Zadar held from June 20-21. Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki tested positive for COVID-19 after playing in Novak Djokovic’s Adria Tour exhibition event, raising serious concerns for tennis governing bodies in their bid to restart the sport after a lengthy shutdown.The professional circuit was halted in early March as nations closed borders and imposed lockdowns to contain the spread of the virus.Last week the men’s ATP and the WTA, which runs women’s events, issued revised calendars for the resumption of the circuit from August while organizers of the US Open said the Grand Slam will be staged without fans as scheduled from Aug. 31 to Sept. 13 in New York.

Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions EL SEGUNDO — After rolling most of the league to begin this year’s campaign, the Lakers are hitting a holiday rut: They’ve lost two in a row for the first time all season, and for the next game, they might be missing LeBron James.The Lakers (24-5) announced Saturday that James did not practice and is doubtful for Sunday’s tilt against the Denver Nuggets (19-8). With back-to-back home games against the West’s No. 2 and No. 3 (the Clippers) teams respectively, it’s an inopportune moment to be without the engine to the league’s fifth-best offense.The team said James strained a muscle in his thoracic region, which is close to the rib cage, Tuesday night against the Indiana Pacers when he had a collision near the basket. Lakers coach Frank Vogel said James played through it in Indianapolis, then again Thursday for a drummed-up game against the Milwaukee Bucks. James averaged a triple-double in those losses, but shot just 41% from the floor.For the season, James has been again one of the league’s best players, averaging 25.8 points, 10.6 assists and 7.5 rebounds. Last year when he tore his groin and missed 18 games, it had a catastrophic effect on the Lakers’ season. These Lakers feel more equipped to handle it with veteran leadership and Anthony Davis, who is probable himself with right ankle soreness). But it’s still a bit of a gut-check for a team that hasn’t experienced this much adversity yet this season. Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs “It’s the nature of the beast,” he said. “Some years you’re healthy, some years you have nagging injuries, and unfortunate that’s just me this year. It’s a lot more season left and that’s why it’s just important for me to feel like I’m healthy and confident to be out there, play at the best of my abilities.”During James’ injury last year – which he eerily suffered this time last season – the Lakers went 6-12 in games he missed. The new roster has more experience, which the Lakers hope can carry on the success they’ve had so far this season.“A little bit easier than last year,” Kuzma said. “Last year, we were a younger team, so a lot of times in the fourth quarter we folded a little bit. But we got a veteran team and we still got AD on this team. Those guys have been there, done that and been through plenty of wars.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers It’s not just the Lakers who have a lot riding on James’ health. The two most highly rated TV games this season have been opening night when the Lakers played the Clippers, then Lakers vs. Bucks on Thursday. As the NBA’s ratings have slumped this season, missing James for a Lakers-Clippers battle on Christmas could mean fewer fans will be tuning in for the rematch at Staples Center.The focus for the Lakers is who they do have, which aside from James, could be a more complete roster than they’ve had. After playing through ankle soreness Thursday and scoring 36 points against the Bucks, Davis is listed as probable even though Vogel said he’s still feeling some discomfort.Kuzma practiced for the first time since before the five-game road trip that he missed as he recovered from an ankle he injured nearly a month ago. He went through all of practice Saturday, but the deciding factor will be how his ankle responds to the workload. Kuzma has struggled with a summer foot injury, a poked eye and other mishaps this year while struggling to find his role in a remade Lakers team.Related Articles Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“If he doesn’t go tomorrow, it’s gonna be a group effort,” Vogel said. “It’s one of those things that no one person can pick up everything LeBron does for our team.”In the event that James can’t play Sunday, Vogel said he would release the starting lineup then. Rajon Rondo, who has not started this season, or Kyle Kuzma, who has missed five straight games and is probable for Sunday, is a potential candidate to step in.While Davis and James are on most MVP shortlists a third of the way through the season, certain statistics make the case James has been the more valuable player. The Lakers have outscored opponents by 235 points when he’s been on the floor this year, and only nine points when he’s off. His net rating is the highest (plus-10.7) of any Lakers starter, including Davis. His 10.6 assists per game, the highest average of his career, also leads the league.James is one of five Lakers to play in every game this season, and as recently as Sunday in Atlanta, he made the case that he wouldn’t want to miss games for rest (a practice known as “load management”).“I don’t know how many games I got left in my career,” he said. “I don’t know how many kids that may show up to a game and they’re there to come see me play and if I sit out, then what? That’s my obligation. My obligation is to play, play for my teammates and if I’m healthy, then I’m going to play. If Coach sits me out, then I’m not healthy. And it’s just that simple.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
