Swine Flu became epidemic a few months ago in various parts of the world and many people became very afraid. Some people died and thousands of people across the world got infected. We have not seen any high profile or celebrity player getting infected by it. So, from this point of view Tommy Haas is perhaps an exception. I don’t know of any other Tennis player who got this disease.
The 31-year-old consulted his doctor after suffering flu symptoms and was diagnosed with the H1N1 strain.
"I did a test because I suspected I had the swine flu and it was positive," this year's
Wimbledonsemi-finalist told the Bild newspaper.
Haas also withdrew from the Stockholm Open in October because of flu.
Let us hope that he will become ok quickly.
