Re: Report: Christina McHale out for rest of the season
Why do tennis players are more prone to mononucleosis and "food poisoning" than the average ? Hum...
Most people have contracted the mononucleosis virus by the time they're adults. However, it doesn't affect people until they become run down through stress. It's understandable that most tennis players would come in contact with the virus given all the travel. Add to this the physical and mental stress of being a professional athlete, and it's easy to see why tennis players are susceptible to the disease.
Most people recover fully after 3 months. Hopefully, Christina will be ready in January.
