So I can’t train, I can’t play“, He said, explaining that he felt violent pains all over his body as soon as he made a physical effort. For several weeks, the 34-year-old Frenchman wondered about the origin of these almost paralyzing pains. “Now I went to see two doctors, I did some tests so I know what I have and the most important thing is to take care of myself. I even prefer to take more time to heal myself and be sure that in the future I won’t have any problems rather than trying to get back on the court as quickly as possible and find myself with more health problems.“, he added.

It’s frustrating especially that I don’t have ten years left to play (…) Suddenly, now I regret having had the vaccine, but I could not knowHe said again. Especially since at his age, a prolonged stoppage can put an end to his career. “I’m 35 in February so right now I might be a little bit negative but this is the first time I have thought that next season might be my last. I think about it … it’s difficult because I was having fun and I wanted to play longer», He admitted. “The problem is that we have no hindsight on the vaccine. There are people who have had similar things, but the durations have been really different“, He noted, based on what the doctors consulted told him.
