Australian Open 2022 Djokovic admits an error the Serbian soon

OPEN AUSTRALIA. While the disorder is still present on the positive test of Novak Djokovic, the Serbian recognizes an error by not having isolated himself.

[Mis à jour le 12 janvier à 09h00] Every day has the right to its revelation. While doubts remain about Novak Djokovic’s positive test, the Serbian finally spoke on the subject via a statement posted on social networks. In his text, the world number 1 confirms that he was positive and justifies his presence in public on December 17 by explaining that he did not yet have the results of his test. “I had no symptoms and felt fine, and had not received notification of the positive PCR test until the end of this event,” he explains. Djokovic recognizes on the other hand an “error of judgment”, that of having received, then asymptomatic patient, journalists of the French daily newspaper L’Equipe for an interview. “I felt compelled to go on and do the L’Equipe interview because I didn’t want to let the reporter down, but I made sure to respect social distancing and wear a mask, except when my portrait was done. , he explained. On reflection, it was an error in judgment and I admit that I should have postponed this engagement. ” Djokovic also pleads “human error” for checking the wrong box in the form for entering Australia. The latter had checked the box confirming that he had not traveled in the 14 days preceding his arrival in Australia on January 5.
