"Yoni Ehrlich will also play on one leg if necessary" | Israel today


The player's surroundings claim that despite the injury, he will go up to play with Novak Djokovic in the doubles tournament at the ATP in Tel Aviv • At 16:00 he will pass a fitness test

The tennis player Yoni Ehrlich is scheduled to play today (Wednesday) at around 19:00 with Novak Djokovic, in the ATP tournament in Tel Aviv, but it turns out that he is dealing with a back injury that may prevent him from playing.

Those around the player claim that he will not give up the game, saying: "He will go up to play even on one leg."

In any case, he will pass an aptitude test at 16:00, after which the final decision will be made.

The two are expected to meet in the first round the Dutch duo - Bert Stevens and Sander Arends, who entered the competition under a protected rating, when they have never played with each other. 

On the other hand, Ehrlich and Djokovic partnered together at the Queen's tournament in 2010, when they reached the end and lifted the trophy, which was also the Serbian's first and last trophy in doubles tournaments.

Nola also has his first singles match tomorrow, where he starts directly in the round of 16.

 It should be remembered that for Ehrlich this is the last competition in his career, when before their meeting Djokovic posted a video "I am waiting to see you in your 'last dance' in Tel Aviv. We will celebrate your career off the court as well."
