    True story I played h.s. tennis with David Wheaton. He was 2 years young than me and won state when he was in 9th grade. That year I actually beat him in straight sets in a local tournament but because baseball was my summer jam I never was committed enough to trying to become a tennis star and well...

    FYI Wheaton per wiki:

    Juniors

    In 1987, Wheaton won the US Open junior title and was the No. 1 ranked junior player in the US. In 1988, he helped Stanford University's tennis team win the NCAA team title and received the Block S Award as the most outstanding freshman athlete at Stanford.

    Pro tour

    Wheaton turned professional on July 4, 1988 and won his first top-level singles title in 1990 at the U.S. Clay Court Championships in Kiawah Island, South Carolina. He was also runner-up in the 1990 US Open men's doubles (with Paul Annacone).

    The most significant highlights of his career came in 1991. He won the Grand Slam Cup in Munich, beating Michael Chang in straight sets in the final 7–5, 6–2, 6–4. He also reached the semifinals of singles at Wimbledon (beating Petr Korda, C?dric Pioline, Ivan Lendl, Jan Gunnarsson and Andre Agassi in the quarterfinals before being knocked-out by Boris Becker), and was a men's doubles runner-up at the Australian Open (partnering with his former Stanford teammate Patrick McEnroe). Wheaton reached his career-high singles ranking of world No. 12 in July 1991.

    During his career, Wheaton won three top-level singles and three doubles titles, representing the US in Davis Cup (v. Australia, 1993) reached the semifinals or better in either singles or doubles of every Grand Slam tournament, and defeated highly ranked players such as Andre Agassi, Jimmy Connors, Ivan Lendl, Stefan Edberg, Jim Courier, and Michael Chang.
    FYI he's a massive douche.

      I always assume these highly talented individual sport athletes are David Foster Wallace-level douches. Golfers, tennis players, skiers, boxers, auto racers. You may have to be to reach the top.

              While covering the World Cup. He was at the Netherlands-Argentina game.

              His family is suspecting foul play.

              Edit: To add to this, he was kicked out of the stadium earlier in the tournament for wearing a shirt with a rainbow logo. He reportedly received death threats.

              His brother, who is gay, posted a pretty chilling video.

              • He's been pretty critical of them. posting a lot of stories about the migrant workers.

                This is bad.

                  Yup he just posted one like yesterday or the day before.

                  He was live tweeting at the NED-ARG game up to the late Netherlands equalizer.

                  His wife is a medical doctor and infectious disease expert and was a member of the COVID-19 Advisory Board for President Biden, if the Qataris had a hand in this they ****ed up big time.

                            He apparently has been sick and went to the medical center at the press center but apparently had been feeling better.

                            Given that his wife is an infectious disease expert, I highly doubt he just brush something major off.

                              The family of Jamal Khashoggi sends its condolences. The Wahl family will be glad to know the United States will not take this lying down. The next time Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani or any of his underlings meet with the American president they will only receive a fist bump.

                                It sounds like he had something similar to bronchitis for a few days from what I'm reading elsewhere (by which I mean "reddit thread"). A lot of people some to think some of the things come from cardiac arrest. The latter can come from both natural reasons and non-natural reasons, though, so who knows until we get more concrete information.
