Tennis champion Rafael Nadal symptoms are consistent with Covid vaccine adverse reactions.
Rafael Nadal has revealed he struggled to breathe throughout his straight sets defeat to Taylor Fritz in the Indian Wells final.
The Australian Open champion was 4-0 down in the first set, at which point he left the court for medical treatment. He improved when returning to the court, but lost 6-3, 7-6 (7-5) to Fritz, who became the first American to win Indian Wells since Andre Agassi in 2001.
“It’s tough for me to breathe,” Nadal told the press afterwards. “When I try to breathe, it’s painful and it’s very uncomfortable. "I don’t know if it’s something in the ribs. When I’m breathing, when I’m moving it’s like a needle all the time inside here. “I get dizzy a little bit because it’s painful. It’s a kind of pain that limits me a lot. It’s not only about pain, I don’t feel very well because it affects my breathing.”
Nadal’s 20-match unbeaten run came to an end on Sunday and he was gracious in defeat, despite not being able to play at his best.
“This is not the time to talk about this, even if it’s obvious that I could not do normal things today,” he added. “It’s a final. I tried. I lost to a great player. It’s not the day to talk about what’s going on with me. It’s his [Fritz’s] day.”
The world number three lost in the semi-finals to Novak Djokovic in Paris last year, but admits he is more worried about his body after being pushed for an answer about his breathing issues.
It has been suggested that Nadal has a pectoral injury but the symptoms described also match myocarditis and pericarditis, both of which have spiked since 2021 when Covid “vaccines” became available. These and other heart ailments have been listed among nearly 1300 side effects of one Covid vaccine.
Nadal had been asked about Novak Djokovic's decision not to have the Vaccine and he was adamant that he was having it, it was perfectly safe and that he trusted the doctors in what they are doing. Those words must surely be ringing in his ears tonight.
