The revelations released by Jeremy Chardy to the newspaper L'Equipe about his current physical condition are shocking and not very encouraging. The French tennis player has announced that his 2021 season has ended prematurely due to a series of problems that are holding him back at this stage: according to what was stated by the former player number 25 in the ATP ranking, the main cause is an adverse reaction to the vaccine.
The argument has always created controversy and confrontation between the various tennis players on the Tour, with several who did not take a position and others who initially challenged it and openly declared not to do so (some only later changed their mind).
A concrete example is the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas who, after much criticism of refusing to administer it, did not hide his intention to receive the serum before the end of the year. The 34-year-old underwent the administration of the anti-Covid serum between the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and the US Open and the result over time was not effective: "Since I received the inoculation, I have more than one problem to deal with.
Consequently, I can't play tennis, I can't even train. I prefer to take more time to treat myself and be sure that, in the future, I will not have further complications." Jeremy continued the story about his schedule of missed matches and also remarked: "At the moment my year is at a standstill and I don't even know when I will resume.
So now I regret taking the vaccine, but I couldn't know. It is the first time that the idea has crossed my mind that next season could be the last." Chardy's performance in the period highlighted was not exciting, a bit like the rest of the 2021 tournaments: in fact, in Cincinnati he was eliminated in the qualifiers by the American Sandgren, while in the last Grand Slam competition in New York the Frenchman had tried to keep up with the Italian Matteo Berrettini, without succeeding (defeat in three hard-fought sets).
Still a new big trouble for Novak Djokovic
Novak Djokovic was seen at the table with former commander Milan Jolovic, protagonist of the Srebrenica genocide, the massacre of thousands of Bosnian Muslims, and an episode that negatively made history of that country in 1995.
The photos of this lunch quickly went viral on social media and criticism for this situation has rained all over the world. Until now Nole has refused to comment on any details regarding this lunch. Jolovic was the commander of the Drina Wolves, the so-called 'Wolves of Drina' and was a very important character in this story as he saved the life of Mladic, the general who led the massacre and who was then relegated to life in prison for genocide and war crimes.
A situation certainly at the level of an unedifying image for the Serbian champion who in the past was exposed to criticism for the direct Instagram with his friend and little appreciated guru Chervin Jafarieh, a character considered excessive due to his use of particular theories.
