Tunisian tennis star Ons Jabeur, 29, told reporters after her second round win over Linda Noskova on Thursday that she felt unwell during the match and struggled to bring her A-game onto the court due to persistent coughing and other syndromes.
‘I’m a zombie because I have a flu,’ said this year’s finalist at Wimbledon. ‘I’m taking a lot of medicine.’
I guess only Djokovic doesn’t have it.
