Russian tennis players may receive admission to Wimbledon in 2023, according to a British newspaper.
The Grand Slam organizers have stated that they may overrule their decision to exclude Russian and Belarusian tennis players from the competition in London. The Russian and Belarusian tennis players would be allowed to play with a neutral status.
The publication recently noted that Wimbledon organizers have had it with having to fight for space on the tennis world’s calendar.
Russia was recently penalized by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and fined $1 million for refusing to allow Russian and Belarussian players to participate in tournaments held in Britain. The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) also fined the British organization $1 million earlier for making the same mistake.
At the beginning of Wimbledon, it was decided not to allow Russian tennis players to participate under the auspices of the ATP and WTA in a neutral status. The decision caused a resonance among the tennis community, as well as disappointment with the ATP and WTA, which lost points during their tournaments.
