Grigor Dimitrov's final opponent at the cancelled Adria Tour event, Borna Coric, has joined the Bulgarian in testing positive for coronavirus, with Nick Kyrgios calling it a "boneheaded decision" to go ahead with the exhibition tournament.
Dimitrov faced Coric at the event in Croatia on Saturday but returned home to Monaco after feeling unwell and later confirmed he had tested positive for COVID-19.
Following Dimitov's announcement, the Adria Tour final, which would have featured world No 1 and tournament organiser Novak Djokovic, was cancelled.
Coric has since confirmed he too has tested positive, despite being asymptomatic, and has urged those he came into contact with to also get tested.

In a post on Twitter, Coric said: "Hi everyone, I wanted to inform you all that I tested positive for COVID-19.
"I want to make sure anyone who has been in contact with me during the last few days gets tested. I am really sorry for any harm I might have caused.
"I'm feeling well and don't have any symptoms. Please stay safe and healthy. Lots of love to all."

The Australian added: "Dimitorov got Covid -19 are Thiem, Novak & Zverev also getting tested?"
Marin Cilic, who also participated at the Adria Tour event, has confirmed on Twitter that he has tested negative for coronavirus.
The former US Open winner said: "Hi everyone, I wanted to share with you that I have tested Negative for COVID-19 virus and am feeling well.
"Regardless, I will self isolate for the next 14 days and continue to listen to the advice of medical professionals.

Victor Troicki, who played in the first leg staged at Djokovic's tennis complex in central Belgrade, has also tested positive.
Troicki, 34, entered Janko Tipsarevic's Eastern European Championship tournament which started in Belgrade last Monday and pulled out after learning that he and his wife tested positive.
"My wife took the test on Friday and I took it on Sunday after she tested positive," Troicki told Serbia's Telegraf website. "Our daughter tested negative."
