New Delhi, April 20. Players from Russia and Belarus have been banned for Wimbledon, the prestigious Grand Slam tournament of tennis. Players from Russia and Belarus will no longer be able to participate in this tournament, which runs from June 27 to July 10. This was informed by tweeting on behalf of Wimbledon on Wednesday.
Wimbledon took the decision due to the war
An official statement issued by Wimbledon said, “We are banning players from Russia and Belarus, because the attacks on Ukraine cannot be accepted at the global level. Russia has invaded Ukraine.” If done, Belarus has supported him, so the players of these two countries are being banned.
Let us tell you that after this action, major players like Russian Daniil Medvedev and Belarusian female player Aryna Sabalenka will no longer be a part of the tournament.
Wimbledon said in a statement, “It has been decided by the Management Committee of the All England Club and the Championship that we would like to express our support to the affected people in Ukraine in view of this crisis in Ukraine.” We condemn the Russian aggression and that is why we are banning tennis players from Russia and Belarus from competing in Wimbledon.
