Ace tennis star blames human error by his support team
Novak Djokovic knew he'd tested positive for COVID-19 when he attended a newspaper interview and photo shoot in Serbia last month, saying Wednesday he made an error of judgment' and should have gone into isolation.
In a statement posted to his social media accounts, the tennis star also blamed human error by his support team for failing to declare that he had traveled in the two-week period before entering Australia.
Upon arrival, his visa was revoked and then later reinstated in an ongoing saga over whether he should be allowed into the country despite not being vaccinated against COVID-19. The back and forth has provoked outrage in Australia and overshadowed the lead about his movements after he became infected last month — though he did not say spell out what inaccuracies he was referring to.
