Ukrainian tennis player accused ATP and WTA of supporting “Russian propaganda”

MOSCOW, May 21. Ukrainian tennis player Alexander Dolgopolov criticized the Association of Professional Tennis Players ( ATP) and the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) for the decision not to award rating points to Wimbledon participants. The ATP and WTA made this decision due to the exclusion of Russian and Belarusian players from the tournament.

"Well done, ATP and WTA, you did No. 1 Russian propagandist happy to take points from Wimbledon. Surely this will scatter all over Russian propaganda. A very bad decision. You can't sit on two chairs. There is a reason why Wimbledon is probably the most famous tennis tournament. With or without glasses, there are far more important things than tennis, and in these difficult times, Wimbledon has stood on the right side and will maintain its impeccable reputation. As for the rest, it’s their choice,” Dolgopolov wrote on social networks.

In addition to Wimbledon, Russian and Belarusian players were banned from playing at grass tournaments in the UK under the auspices of the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA). Wimbledon will be held in London from 27 June to 10 July.
