French Tennis Star Gael Monfils Blames Booster Shot For His Health Problem Resulting in Withdrawal from Tournament

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on February 23, 2022

On Tuesday, French Number One tennis star player announced his withdrawal from next week’s tournament after suffering a potential adverse reaction following his Covid-19 booster shot.

Gael Monfils, 35, announced his withdrawal from next week’s Davis Cup on his social media account due to health problems.

“Hello everyone, I wanted to give you some news following my recent withdrawals from tournaments. I suffered a minor health glitch (probably following my third dose of vaccine),” Monfils revealed on his Twitter account.

“On the advice of my doctor, I have decided to take some time to rest. Unfortunately, I will not be able to play the Davis Cup next week,” he added.

“I hope to be able to return to the United States,” Monfils concluded.

The 2022 Davis Cup World Group I Playoffs will be held on a home-and-away basis on March 4-5, 2022.

It can be recalled that another tennis player, Jeremy Chardy, developed a ‘series of problems’ after getting vaccinated. The 35-year-old player said he regretted taking the Covid-19 vaccine.

Monfils’ decision to take his third shot might be a result of the government’s tyrannical regulations to deactivate the vaccine passports of residents who have not taken the booster shot.

TGP previously reported that the French Government began deactivating the vaccine passports of nearly four million double-vaxxed citizens because they still have not taken the booster. Individuals who have had their passes taken away will effectively be relegated to unvaxxed status and no longer be able to engage in most aspects of society.

Although some are willing to take the booster, most were caught completely off-guard when they checked their app and found their privileges had been revoked.

‘Novax’ Djokovic’s Father Claims His Son is Being Crucified Like Jesus

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 8, 2022

💭 Novak Djokovic’s father has launched a passionate defence of his son and has likened the tennis superstar’s treatment at the hands of the Australian authorities to the crucifixion of Jesus.

The 34-year-old Djokovic was granted a medical exemption from Covid-19 vaccination requirements to compete in the year’s first grand slam but after a public outcry he was detained by officials at the border on Thursday.

Djokovic is now in a quarantine hotel in Melbourne after his lawyers secured an agreement for him to stay in the country for a court hearing on Monday in which he hopes to overturn the federal government ban on his entry.

Christmas in Orthodox Serbia | የገና እና ልደት በዓል በኦርቶዶክስ ሰርቢያ

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 6, 2022

💭 Orthodox Christians celebrated Orthodox Christmas Eve in front of the St Sava Church + Church of the Holy Emperor Constantine and Empress Helena

Christmas is celebrated on January 7 in Serbia, according to the Julian calendar. Orthodox Christmas is also celebrated by Russia, Georgia, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Egypt and Ethiopia.

During the Christmas Eve in Serbia, many of the believers were gathered at their Orthodox temples to celebrate the most joyous Christian holiday that follows – Christmas.

Christmas Eve is the religious holiday celebrated by the Orthodox Christians on January the 6th. The holiday announces Christmas – the day of Jesus birth. The name of the holiday comes after a Christmas tree (“Badnjak” on Serbian) that is cut and burned on that day. Christmas Eve is full of rituals and symbolism, and they are all connected to the celebration of family and hearth cult.

Badnjak firing symbolize light and warmth, it is a central element of the symbolism of the birth of the New Year, and the sparks that scatter in the direction of the sky symbolize the hope that the next year will be the fertile. Depending on the part of Serbia, different Christmas trees were selected. In eastern Serbia it is a cer, and in western parts are the oak or beech.

Cesnica”, the Christmas bread, is usually flat, round bread, fat and yeast free. It is prepared early on the Christmas day, with few drops of holy water and with a coin inside, which symbolize the happiness and plentifulness in the year that follows. Cesnica is never cut, it have to be divided with hands during the family dinner. The luckiest among present ones get a piece of bread with a coin in it. There is a belief that the next year will be especially rich for him.

World No. 1 Tennis Player Orthodox Christian Djokovic Told to Leave Australia on Christmas Day

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 6, 2022

💭 No coincidence! Controversial and more and more autocratic Australia is sending its indigenous (aboriginal) people into COVID internment and concentration camps – and now it is turning against ancient Orthodox Christians of the world.

የዓለማችን ቍ. ፩ ቴኒስ ተጫዋች ጆኮቪች የኮቪድ ክትባትን ለመከተብ ፈቃደኛ ባለመሆኑ በኦርቶዶክስ ገና ከአውስትራሊያ ለመባረር በቃ። በአጋጣሚ? አይደለም!

ጆኮቪች በቴኒሱ ዓለም ለመቶ ሃምሳ አራት ሳምንታት (ሰባት ዓመታት) ያህል ቍ.፩ ስፖርተኛው ነው

አጥባቂው ኦርቶዶክስ ኖቫክ የሰቢያውን ቅዱስ ሳቫን ሜዳሊያ ተሸላሚ ነው

💭 Novak Djokovic Speaks 11 Languages: Serbian, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, Japanese, Portuguese, Chinese

Nine-time Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic may not be able to defend his 2021 title after his visa to enter Australia was canceled following an outcry over his controversial “medical exemption” from the country’s coronavirus vaccination rules.

Djokovic, the men’s tennis world no.1, hasn’t publicly revealed his vaccination status — but in a news conference on Thursday, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he “didn’t have a valid medical exemption” to the vaccination requirement for all arrivals.

“Entry with a visa requires double vaccination or a medical exemption,” Morrison said. “I am advised that such an exemption was not in place, and as a result, he is subject to the same rules as everyone else.”

“There are many visas granted, if you have a visa and you’re double vaccinated you’re very welcome to come here,” he added. “But if you’re not double vaccinated and you’re not an Australian resident or citizen, well, you can’t come.”

The 34-year-old traveled to Melbourne after tournament organizers, in conjunction with the Victoria Department of Health, said he had been granted a medical exemption to play but he was blocked at the border and told he had not met the required entry rules.

Health Minister Greg Hunt said Thursday it was up to Djokovic whether he wanted to appeal the decision — “but if a visa is canceled, somebody will have to leave the country.”

Djokovic’s legal team sought an urgent injunction against the Australian Border Forces’ decision to revoke his visa. The country’s Federal Court has adjourned the decision until Monday on whether he will be allowed to remain in Australia or be deported, according to Reuters and public broadcaster ABC.

Djokovic will be staying in Australia overnight as the injunction goes through the courts, ABC reported.

On Thursday, supporters of Djokovic gathered outside the Park Hotel in Melbourne, where he was allegedly transferred after being detained at the airport, according to CNN affiliates Seven Network and Nine News. The hotel was formerly used as a Covid-19 quarantine hotel for returned travelers, but is now operating as a detention facility housing asylum seekers and refugees.

Djokovic has previously voiced opposition to compulsory Covid-19 vaccines, saying he was personally “opposed to vaccination” during a Facebook live chat. He contracted the virus in June 2020, but since then there have been no reports of him being re-infected.

The controversy comes as Australia faces a growing outbreak, having reported a record high number of daily new cases for several days in a row.

Tournament organizers earlier said the Serb, who is trying to break the record for most men’s grand slam singles titles, had received a medical exemption to play in the prestigious tennis tournament.

The exemption was met with controversy as Djokovic traveled to Melbourne on Wednesday.
