Wimbledon tournament control announced Thursday that it will not allow Russian and Belarusian tennis players to enter the next Grand Slam tournament in the UK. A decision aimed at expressing a refusal on the fact that Russia has invaded Ukraine.
Ahead of this decision, Russia’s Daria Kasatkina, who ranks 26th on the WTA list, has been severely criticized.
“There are top things going on in the world. I agree that people’s lives are most important, but I can’t understand how this measure will have an impact on the current situation,” he said on the sidelines of the tournament in Stuttgart, Germany.
Frustration shared by Andrei Rublev. “There is no point in the reasons given. It is without logic and it only serves to discriminate,” he shot in Belgrade.
