From The Babylon Bee:
NEW YORK CITY, NY — Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic has been declared the champion of the 2022 US Open, as all the other contestants have died suddenly of mysterious heart attacks. US Open Chair Patrick Galbraith made the announcement this morning as the last player was carted away in an ambulance.
“Welp, I guess that just leaves the anti-vax guy, since he’s the only tennis player still alive,” said Galbraith to reporters. “Novak Djokovic is the 2022 winner of the US Open!”
“We can’t begin to explain why these healthy young athletes are dying, but we believe it must have something to do with either global warming or racism,” said Galbraith. “We would like to congratulate Djokovic for the incredible win he achieved by just surviving this mysterious plague.”
Unfortunately, Djokovic was not allowed in the award ceremony to receive his trophy due to his unvaccinated status.
