In an Instagram post, Dimitrov said he was sorry to anyone he came in contact with at the Adria Tour.

“Hi Everyone-I want to reach out and let my fans and friends know that I tested positive back in Monaco for Covid-19. I want to make sure anyone who has been in contact with me during these past days gets tested and takes the necessary precautions. I am so sorry for any harm I might have caused. I am back home now and recovering. Thanks for your support and please stay safe and healthy. GD”

Dimitrov said he is back home and recovering, and urged everyone to stay safe and healthy.

Shortly after Dimitrov announced the news, the Adria Tour canceled the final. The Adria Tour said no one who interacted with Dimitrov has symptoms, but will be tested again Sunday night.

Novak Djokovic and Andrey Rublev were scheduled to play in the final.
