“The majority is not for us”: Khachanov – about the non-admission of Russians to Wimbledon


MOSCOW, May 20. Russian tennis player Karen Khachanov spoke about the removal of the Russians from Wimbledon .In April, the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) refused Russian and Belarusian athletes to participate in Wimbledon because of the situation in Ukraine. Also, players from Russia and Belarus were banned from playing at grass tournaments in the UK under the auspices of the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA). ATP, WTA and leading tennis players condemned such measures. “Tennis is an individual sport, everyone thinks about himself. He thinks not in general about the current situation and not about the future, but about a specific case: how he played that year, what he can play and earn. Which, in principle, is normal. Most are not for us, but for the fact that Wimbledon made the wrong decision. They do not agree with him because of the discrimination that we were removed, “the Championship tennis player quotes .Khachanov replied that the topic of non-admission of Russians to Wimbledon is discussed daily in the tennis environment. According to him, this issue should be approached delicately, since it is impossible to make a decision that would suit all athletes. Karen Khachanov is the silver medalist of the Tokyo Olympics and the winner of four ATP tournaments in singles. Wimbledon will take place in London from June 27 to July 10.
