Andy Murray shares concern after Covid-19 positive tests at Djokovic event

  • Borna Coric and Grigor Dimitrov tested positive
  • Dan Evans criticises Novak Djokovic’s role in Adria

Andy Murray wants to play in the rescheduled US Open at the end of August, but he shares the concern spreading rapidly through tennis since Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric and two trainers tested positive for coronavirus in Croatia at the weekend.

Murray drew back from outright criticism of his long-time rival and friend, Novak Djokovic, after the world No 1 was forced to abandon his troubled Adria tournament moments before the final in Zadar on Sunday because of the shock withdrawal of the world No 19 Dimitrov. But Murray could yet decide not to fly to New York if there are further outbreaks of Covid-19 – or complacency among other players.
