The Adria tour, which took place at Zadar last weekend, was engulfed in controversy after the final was canceled after Grigor Dimitrov’s positive test.

Djokovic, the world number one tennis star who is scheduled to play in Sunday’s final, confirmed Tuesday that he and his wife Jelena were also tested positive for Covid-19 after returning to Serbia, while his children’s results were negative.

In a statement released on its website, Djokovic defended the organization of Adria Tour, a four-stage charity event held in the Balkans.

“Everything was born with a philanthropic idea, to direct all the funds raised to people in need and it warms my heart to see how everyone is responding to this,” said the 17-time grand slam champion.

“We organize tournaments when the virus has weakened, believing that the conditions for the tour have been fulfilled.

“Unfortunately, this virus still exists, and it is a new reality that we are still learning to overcome it and live with it.

“I hope things will diminish over time so that we can all live again as before. I am very sorry for every case of infection. I hope it does not complicate anyone’s health situation and that everyone will be fine.”

Djokovic added that he would remain isolated for the next 14 days and undergo another test within five days.

Fellow player Nick Kyrgios called the decision to host the Tour “cool-headed,” while great tennis Chris Evert pointed out the lack of social distance between players.

“Everything we have done in the past month, we have done with a pure heart and sincere intentions,” Djokovic’s statement also said about the Adria Tour.

“Our tournament is intended to unite and share messages of solidarity and affection throughout the region.

“The tour has been designed to help established and future tennis players from Southeast Europe get access to some competitive tennis while various tours are postponed due to the Covid-19 situation.”

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
