After Novak Djokovic accused his critics of ‘witch hunt’ on the issue of controversial Adria tour, Dominic Thiem has come out in support of Djokovic and others saying that the criticism has gone too far.
Earlier, Djokovic, his wife Jelena, his coach Goran Ivanisevic, and other participants like Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric, and Viktor Troicki were all tested Covid-19 positive while participating in the exhibition event.
As a participant, Thiem had also undergone a test for the virus that has claimed 572,000 lives so far. The Austrian tested negative but he apologised for his and all the other players’ behavior at the event.
Speaking at an exhibition event in Berlin, Thiem said, “We have to learn from the mistakes and be careful nowadays with this pandemic we are facing. That’s what we have to take from the Adria Tour.”
“Novak and the others didn’t commit any crimes, you have to make that point. The fact we were criticized is not unfair because we all made mistakes. That’s clear. But it was way too much at the end because the whole tournament was well-intended,” he added.
