Published

The organisers of Wimbledon 2022 have hit back at claims they’re discriminating against Russian and Belarusian athletes, following a recent ban

The chairman of the tournament Ian Hewitt says Russia’s invasion of Ukraine put them in an“extreme situation”.

The ban is the first of its kind in an elite tennis event and moves in line with Governments and other sporting bodies around the world.

Wimbledon’s decisions meant Russian and Belarusian athletes were scrapped from the iconic Tennis event, which will kick off on June 27.

Hewitt says they didn’t want to risk letting Russia use the athletes to benefit Russia’s propaganda machine.

The organisation also stressing the move ensures the safety and well-being of all players and their families.

The ban has divided the tennis community. While some support the ban and its solidarity with Ukraine, others have been quick to slam it as unfair and discriminatory.

World number one Novak Djokovic has criticised Wimbledon’s move and urged a review of the decision.

Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.

American home prices are rising at faster pace now than in the last 20-years.

A recent analysis reveals a jaw dropping surge in the cost of American homes.

Since the start of 2020, U.S. home prices have surged 47% easily outstripping the gains seen in recent decades.

On top of that, home price growth so far this decade is on the verge of surpassing all the growth seen in the 2000s.

Many experts believe this decade’s housing market frenzy was ignited by a perfect storm — the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic triggering an unprecedented rush among buyers.
