Russian tennis star slams Wimbledon ban as ‘illogical’ & ‘discriminatory’

Published

Russian tennis star Andrey Rublev has slammed Wimbledon’s ban on Russian and Belarusian players saying it’s illogical and discriminatory

Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and its atrocities, the Wimbledon Organisers made the decision to ban them from the tournament.

“To be honest, the reasons that they give, there is no meaning, there is no logic for what they propose…

“The things that happen now are complete discrimination of us.”

“Banning Russian or Belarusian players will not change anything. To give all the prize money would have a more positive effect to humanitarian help, to the families who are suffering, to the kids who are suffering. I think that would do something.”

The tennis star has previously written ‘no war please’ on the camera post-match, to show his stand against Russia’s actions.

The Kremlin continues to criticise bans on its athletes in global sports calling it “unacceptable”.

The Belarusian Tennis Federation also released a statement saying the ban only encourages ‘hatred and intolerance on the basis of nationality’.

Wimbledon has been quick to defend its motion though, moving in line with other Governments, sporting, and industries to condemn Russia’s actions.

The ban is the first of its kind in an elite tennis event.
