On Tuesday, French Number One tennis star player announced his withdrawal from next week’s tournament after suffering a potential adverse reaction following his Covid-19 booster shot.
Gael Monfils, 35, announced his withdrawal from next week’s Davis Cup on his social media account due to health problems.
“Hello everyone, I wanted to give you some news following my recent withdrawals from tournaments. I suffered a minor health glitch (probably following my third dose of vaccine),” Monfils revealed on his Twitter account.
“On the advice of my doctor, I have decided to take some time to rest. Unfortunately, I will not be able to play the Davis Cup next week,” he added.
“I hope to be able to return to the United States,” Monfils concluded.

The 2022 Davis Cup World Group I Playoffs will be held on a home-and-away basis on March 4-5, 2022.
It can be recalled that another tennis player, Jeremy Chardy, developed a ‘series of problems’ after getting vaccinated. The 35-year-old player said he regretted taking the Covid-19 vaccine.
Monfils’ decision to take his third shot might be a result of the government’s tyrannical regulations to deactivate the vaccine passports of residents who have not taken the booster shot.
TGP previously reported that the French Government began deactivating the vaccine passports of nearly four million double-vaxxed citizens because they still have not taken the booster. Individuals who have had their passes taken away will effectively be relegated to unvaxxed status and no longer be able to engage in most aspects of society.
Although some are willing to take the booster, most were caught completely off-guard when they checked their app and found their privileges had been revoked.
