Second Serve


By Chris Oddo | @TheFanChild | Wednesday February 23, 2022

Gael Monfils has announced that he will miss the Davis Cup due to a small health issue, likely related to receiving his third dose of the Covid vaccine.

“I wanted to give you some news following my recent tournament withdrawals,” Monfils wrote in French on Twitter. “I suffered a small health glitch (probably following my third dose of vaccine). On the advice of my doctor, I decided to take time to rest. So unfortunately I won't be able to play the Davis Cup next week.”

Monfils: Stop Appropriating Everyone’s Words for Political Purposes or to Serve Your Convictions

The Frenchman later took to Twitter again to tell people that he’s happy he took the vaccine and that he’d like for them to stop using his health update as fodder to fuel their own political views or convictions.

“This tweet was a simple update on my current state of form following my last packages,” he said. After several examinations, the doctors made a hypothesis about the potential nature of my state of health. My goal was simply to be transparent with you and not to push anti-vax propaganda."

“Let's stop appropriating everyone's words for political purposes or simply to serve your convictions. I don't regret getting vaccinated at all. Everyone does what he wants,” Monfils wrote.
