Unfortunately, this virus is still present, and it is a new reality that we are still learning to cope with and live with," Novak Djokovic said in his statement. "It was all borne with a philanthropic idea, to direct all raised funds towards people in need and it warmed my heart to see how everybody strongly responded to this," he added.
