Australia: Top Tennis Player Quits Match, Says He Can’t Breathe

It’s not the vax, I’m sure it’s just, you know… the weather.


The world number 22 tennis player has been pictured with his hand appearing to be on his chest before shakily leaving a match with respiratory difficulties.

Australian Open hopeful Nikoloz Basilashvili needed treatment from a doctor during a worrying episode at the Sydney Cup, where he was 4-1 down in the opening set to world number four Stefanos Tsitsipas.

A physio attended to Basilashvili, who seemed startled by the incident and was heard telling his team that “every shot I’m out of breath” before the showdown was abruptly called off.

The disturbing development came less than two weeks before the Georgian star will be hoping to take part in the first Grand Slam of the year when the Australian Open begins in Melbourne.

Colin Fleming, a commentator for Stan Sport, was widely quoted to have described the scene as “very concerning” and added: “If you feel like you can’t take any kind of deep breath at this level and this intensity, that’s an issue.”

Some onlookers called the conclusion to the match “scary”, while tennis website OpenCourt claimed Basilashvili may have been recovering from Covid.

“[He] told the trainer he had Covid ’10 days ago’,” the outlet said on social media.

“Practiced a couple days and felt all right, but says now he’s struggling to draw any more than shallow breaths. Got crushed in his first singles, didn’t play the second tie, retired today.”

Melbourne contender Tsitsipas conceded that he was not able to give an update on Basilashvili.

“I don’t really know how is his health,” the Greek told Tennis Majors via Tennis World USA. “It’s not easy playing when you’re not 100 percent. I completely understand his situation.”

Yeah see, maybe it wasn’t the vax and it was actually Covid.

Maybe all of these new problems that didn’t happen ever in the first year of alleged Covid are all caused by Covid since the vax was rolled out because Covid knew the vax was coming so it got more aggressive.

Anyway, it doesn’t really matter if the vax kills millions or billions or whatever. What matters is that we protect them from Covid. It would be better to take a bullet to the head than get infected with Covid.

Covid is like a voodoo curse.
