Zombie’ Jabeur refuses to let illness defeat her at US Open

On September 1st
Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur said she feels very tired because of an illness she has been dealing with. But she is determined to continue playing at the US Open after winning against Czech teenager Linda Noskova on Thursday.
The 29-year-old had trouble breathing during her tough first-round match against Camila Osorio from Colombia. She wasn’t feeling her best physically in her match against Noskova either, but managed to win in just over two hours.
Jabeur said she feels like a zombie because she has the flu. She took a break in July after losing in the Wimbledon final so she could be ready for the rest of the season.
Jabeur said that she had been having a hard time for about a week with the sickness and had been taking a lot of medicine.
She said, “I am doing my best with my team to get better. ” The doctors here are really great and they have been providing me with assistance. I took every kind of medicine they have.
I’m happy that there were two matches and two tests. I wanted to challenge myself to see what I am capable of, by doing things that I am not used to. I hope I will feel better and be in better condition for the next match. Jabeur will be playing against Marie Bouzkova from the Czech Republic in the next round, and she is determined to keep her winning streak going.
“I might feel worn-out, but I know that if I stop now, I’ll feel sorry later. That’s why I want to keep going and stay in New York for as long as I can,” she said.
Several players at the last major tennis tournament of the year have gotten sick, including Dominic Thiem, Chris Eubanks, and Hubert Hurkacz.
Reuters has talked to the people in charge of the US Open about the sicknesses, and they said they are investigating it.
ESPN reported this week that John McEnroe was not able to do his job as an analyst at the US Open because he tested positive for COVID. “Please rephrase this text in simpler language. “
