Tennis player Sergiy Stakhovsky enlists to fight Russian troops

MEXICO CITY (appro).– “Of course I’m afraid! I have three children,” commented former tennis player Sergiy Stakhovsky, after joining the territorial brigades that will fight the Russian military to defend the city of kyiv, in Ukraine.

The 36-year-old former tennis player, who in 2013 defeated Roger Federer and was ranked number 1 in the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) for 310 weeks, of which 237 were consecutive, watches Maidan Square, in the center of kyiv, dressed in camouflage clothing and a Kalashnikov rifle.

“I’m not very comfortable with a rifle and I don’t know how I would react if I had to kill someone. I would have liked never to have to worry about this kind of thing,” the 1.93-meter-tall former athlete confessed to the AFP news agency.
