Novak Djokovic practices on the beach in Tel Aviv (from Twitter)

A big disappointment for Yoni Ehrlich, who had to give up today (Wednesday) his participation in the ATP tournament in Tel Aviv due to back pain.

As you may recall, the decorated 45-year-old doubles tennis player intended to sign off his long career with a spicy collaboration with Novak Djokovic in the doubles tournament of the prestigious competition held in Israel, but in the end he was ineligible to compete and announced his withdrawal just hours before his intended match and that of the Serbian against the Dutch duo Sander Arends and Bart Stevens.

A sad end to a glorious career.

Erlich, who has served for the past two and a half years as the captain of the Israeli Davis team, was ranked fifth in the world in doubles at his peak, and enjoyed a wonderful career together with Andy Ram.

In total he won 19 doubles titles, including one Grand Slam (Australia, 2008).



Before arriving in Israel, Djokovic dedicated a message to Erlich, with whom he won the only doubles tournament in his career at Queen's in 2010, and wrote: "This week at Queen's was one of the funniest in my life," said 'Nola', one of the best tennis players in the history of the sport and who was also at the summit The world ranking for a long time and deteriorated in the last two years to seventh place also due to his refusal to get vaccinated for Corona and the fact that he was absent from several competitions because of this, "You were always friendly to me and my team and respected us. Everyone loves you and will miss you in the round, you are an example of perseverance and professionalism and I look forward to seeing you in Tel Aviv in your 'last dance'. It would be a great honor for me to be by your side in your last tournament and of course after that we will celebrate your career and our friendship together."
