Denver Nuggets basketball star Nikola Jokic, who was pictured hugging Djokovic at a Basketball match in Serbia on June 11, also tested positive but there is no evidence that either man gave the virus to the other.

Kyrgios, who had slammed the decision to hold the Adria Tour as "bone-headed", said he was unhappy with the behaviour of some of the biggest names in the sport. Zverev announced he had tested negative after the event's cancellation.

Alexander Zverev has come under intense scrutiny once again after a video of him partying with a large crowd went viral on social media, one that shows him potentially breaking the self-isolation rules.

The five-time Wimbledon champion released a statement admitting he was wrong to host the tournaments.

The video was posted on Instagram by German designer Philipp Plein and later deleted. The ATP season should resume in Washington in early August, followed by Cincinnati and the US Open (both staged in New York), and Kitzbuhel, Madrid, Rome and Roland Garros.

"So I wake up, and see more controversial things happening all over the world", Kyrgios said.

"If they could shift the blame on me personally, as prime minister, and leave Novak alone, I would love it. It's our fault, we eased the measures, if we hadn't there would be no tournament and leave a man alone when he tries to do something good and courageous, the worst thing is that you have 1,001 kibbutzes who will criticize what has been done from the comfort of home".

"If you have the audacity to ... put out a tweet that you made your management write on your behalf saying you're going to self-isolate for 14-days and apologizing to ... general public for putting their health at risk, at least have the audacity to stay inside for 14 days", Kyrgios said.

The flamboyant Australia added: "This tennis world. seriously how selfish can you all get?"
