Fifteen "fully vaccinated" players were unable to complete the Miami Open, sending shockwaves across the tennis world.

After an unprecedented number of players withdrew or retired from the Miami Open this week, tennis fans are outraged, and the athletic world is reeling. A total of 15 participants, including the male and female favourites to win, were unable to complete the course.

According to  Free Press Media 

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.”

 

 

 

With his debut appearance in the master event in Miami, the 23-year-old Argentinian surprised everyone by reaching the semifinals. For the tennis fans, it was the second game in a row that ended prematurely. Fans were taken aback by the strange tennis event. Someone inquired, "What is going on?"
