What was the quote from Novak Djokovic?

Patriarch Pavle was the 44th patriarch of the Serbian Orthodox Church, and Novak is a staunch supporter of the spiritual leader. So the quote was-

“The boats do not sink because of the water around them, but because of the water that enters them. Don’t let the environment enter you and drag you down. “

* Note: quotes are translated from Serbian to English

Djokovic organized the Adria Tour charity. But as photos of the tour went viral, it was found that social distancing or the use of masks were absent. And so the behemoth Adria Tour went from Serbia to Croatia with potentially the virus with them.

Grigor Dimitrov was the first to report an illness and was then tested and found positive. And then three other players, including Djokovic, were infected, then the tour was canceled.

But throughout the tour, Djokovic kept a defensive stance saying that everything was done according to the rules. And that came back to bite him.

Djokovic has apologized for the tour for a long time now. Since then, the tennis fraternity has separated. Some support and understand Djokvoic’s decision while some still hold it against him.
