Tennis world shocked after scores of players drop out of Miami Open

Fifteen players have already dropped out of the Miami Open, an unprecedented number for a major sports event.

Published: April 2, 2022, 10:03 am


    The tennis world reacted with shock after favorites Paula Badosa and Jannik Sinner had to retire during the quarterfinals of the Miami Open. Badosa, soon to be the number three in the world, became unwell during her match against Jessica Pegula and left the court in tears.

    Badosa, who was comforted by her American opponent, decided to stop after consultation with her physiotherapist. Pegula reached the semifinals of the Miami tennis tournament for the first time in her career after Badosa’s resignation, reported Yahoo Sports.

    In the men’s tournament, the Italian phenomenon Jannik Sinner was forced to withdraw. He gave up after 22 minutes in the game against Francisco Cerundolo, the number 103 in the world ranking. “When I served at 3-1 and 30-0, I saw him bend over. It was very strange,” Cerundolo said during an interview. “I hope he’s okay, he’s a great player.”

    The 23-year-old Argentinian surprisingly reached the semifinals with his first participation in the master tournament in Miami.

    It was the second game in a row that ended prematurely for the tennis fans. Fans reacted with shock to the bizarre tennis day. “What is going on?” someone asked.

        it was nearly 80 degrees in Miami today.

        • ImaGorilla

          So. They play in much hotter weather in Australia and all over the world.

        • Yeah. That’s what cause it lol.

      • AFreeMan

        ABSOLUTELY! People are dropping all over the world. The life insurance companies are panicking. And they’re all vaxxed people, as many of us said would be happening. It’s one of the stated goals of the Elitist billionaires who have been pushing the shots. And sadly, there are still people who will argue to defend them.

      • GRRRR.. DJT is our PRESIDENT 🏛

        Game. set and d’ eath. This is just the beginning for these people and millions more for a far to early entry to a coffin. Wait and see, in time it will seem like a fall day in Virginia, only it won’t be leaves hitting the ground.

      Could it be the experimental gene therapy shot?
      Can we even ask that question?

      • Slasher2

        No no no, it must certainly be the lack of a fourth shot. If they had taken that they surely would have been fine.

        • John Ulrich

          LOL funny comment ! It’a funny because some retards actually believe a 4th or 5th booster will work unlike the predecessors.

      • MSM

        come on its the climate or russia

    • jackbenimble

      No mention of the potential cause? No mention of the epidemic of healthy young athletes in their prime across numerous sports that have been dropping like flies over the past 12 months? Perhaps the COVID-19 vaccines and myocarditis? This is reminiscent of news articles that fail to mention the race of the perpetrator. It is deceit by omission.

      • Rentia Diedericks

        It’s obvious that it’s the shot. Only jabbed players allowed. Novak Djokovic was a no-show at the Miami Open because current CDC regulations require non-U.S. citizens to be fully vaccinated to travel to the United States by plane, and the 20-time major champion is unvaccinated against COVID-19.

        • jackbenimble

          At this rate Novak who wasn’t even there will be the winner by default because everybody else will be dropping dead.

      • SeaHawk68

        I don´t understand why it is so important to you that the race of a perpetrator be publicly announced?

        • DaveGinOly

          First, because crime stories often involve suspects who have not yet been captured, so “race” should be part of a description, esp. in local reports.
          Second, because if a certain culture in a society is breeding anti-social, criminal, and violent behavior, it’s necessary to identify that culture in order to address the problem. If “race” (or “nationality”) is a salient marker of the culture, it’s important. The Mafia is associated with Italians (white people), not the Japanese. SWAPO wasn’t composed of Hispanic people. There aren’t many Aleuts among the fighters of ISIS. To pretend otherwise is to ignore reality.

        • mumbo_jumbo

          Then why is so important for the MSM when the perp is white?

          Can’t have it both ways son.

          You must not be an American! In the USA race is arguably the most important of all issues. When it’s ignored, it’s for some devious political reason. Anyone who lives here knows that.

        • jackbenimble

          Because it is important information that helps me keep myself and my family safe. Jessie Jackson himself once told a story about walking down the street, hearing a group of young people behind him and turning around and to his great relief finding that they were white people.

          Yes, I engage in stereotyping and so does anybody with a brain. Some stereotypes are false and unhelpful and should be discouraged. But most stereotypes are generalizations that are based in truth. The truth is that in the USA an appallingly large percentage of all violent crimes (over 50%) are committed by a tiny sliver of our population (about 4%) of young black men. It is tragic and frightening.

          I would love to wake up some day in the future and find that the stereotype about black crime is no longer a true stereotype but rather falls in the false category that should be discarded. But until young black men quit committing far more crimes then their proportionate share of the population I will stick with stereotyping them. If I meet a particular young black man, I will judge the individual on individual merits. But as a group they have and continue to earn their negative stereotype. Judging them in this manner is an essential survival skill as automatic as seeing a lion and recognizing it as dangerous. It has been engrained in us for millions of years. Sure, there are probably some nice lions that have no interest in eating humans but as a group it is foolhardy to perceive them as anything as dangerous. I might revise my opinion of the nice lion after I am introduced to him as an individual.

      Could be the jab is starting to short circuit these top athletes. Keep moving, nothing tho see here!!

      You have gotten what you desired. A spliced gene from a pig, bat and bird able to cross over. Elon’s pleas to preserve the consciousness and man’s genes must be changed. Bill’s plan to depopulate to a number the earth can handle, 250,000,000. A activation jab. Eventual cross breeding all peoples blood. Be prepared for some really freaky looking men and women in the now.

    • scholarandrogue

      what is going on? holy cow. willful ignorance and normalcy bias from entrainment is going on around what they call gene therapy using inoculation. two years to research the plandemic and still ‘what is going on’?

      • Rentia Diedericks

        And no VAERS data. In 2021, the CDC changed the instructions given to the contractors that they employ to look for safety signals. It used to be “protect the patient.” They changed it to “protect the vaccine.” Changed “patient” to “vaccine” to hide the number of injuries.

        Unpredictable. But not unexpected.

        • jacquelynsauriol

          What i am hearing is that the naturally infected, such as myself, are also in eventual danger as our DNA is also now modified, so they may have ‘got us coming and going’ but maybe and hopefully not to the same extent…hmmmm

          • MAGA MAN

            The Spike protein in Covid-19 is a man made disaster. Whether you got infected with the virus or jabbed with the shot, you got the same spike proteins in your body. That is the reason they shutdown the global economy and went so authoritarian with this. It’s why you see Joe Biden and especially Vladimir Putin take such extreme measures to stay away from other people. They know the long term affects of this virus are catastrophic.

      • Eros Sinema

        Unpredictable? Says who? Any smart person knew they would cause this and more.

      But at least they won’t get Corona! Maybe one of the variants, but not Corona. Cuz it’s already been replaced.

      If they do get Corona, what were the odds of a healthy person under the age of 35 dying from Corona IF they contracted it? 10,000 to 1? 50,000 to 1? or was it 100,000 to 1? More? I never cared enough to remember cuz I had no intention of taking the vaccine.

      Their tennis careers are over. But at least they won’t contract Corona.

      You claim that “Fifteen players have already dropped out of the Miami Open” but you don’t even say who these 15 players are, let alone give a link to your source for that claim. Are you a division of CNN?

    • SeaHawk68

      Would the author please include the 15 names of those who dropped out of the Miami Open to authenticate this article. Thank you.

      • Roger M Atkinsson

        Most of them are players giving up in the early rounds at e.g. 1-6 0-3, when they have tried to play unfit and it has not worked. Two did not play at all, possible positive tests. The two “favorites” in the article would not have been favorites in the semi-finals. It all looks normal and I doubt anyone has been shocked…

      If you haven’t heard the thousands of doctors, cardiologists and epidemiologists screaming about blood clots and heart problems by now, then you’ve been asleep. Athletes are experiencing adverse reactions to the vaccinations because the faster the heart pumps and blood flows, the more “tiny razor blades” travel throughout the system. They’ve been warning about this for 2 years. And Pfizer is not liable. Wake up.

    • 1ColtonDelaney643

      Can you say Vaccination!?
      They are pushing more vaccinations and are using placebos IMO, the more people “vaxxed” the lower the percentage goes for adverse reactions. 350, 400,000,000 vaccinations with 18,000 deaths is a small percentage of death when you have it up against so many vaccinations. They are using placebos, the vaxx doesn’t work anyways and now they will continue to push it.
      This was sinister from the get go!
