Tennis player from the United States supported the attack on Wimbledon due to sanctions against the Russians


MOSCOW, May 22 Member of the Board of Players of the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) American Sloane Stevens supported the organization's decision to deprive Wimbledon, the third Grand Slam tournament of the season, of ranking points. On Friday, the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and the WTA decided not to award ranking points to Wimbledon tournament participants due to the organizers' refusal to allow Russian and Belarusian players. I think it's enough to look at our principles and what our tour stands for to understand that we will not tolerate discrimination. This is exactly what is happening, “Journalist Ben Rothenberg quotes the American tennis player on Twitter. In April, the organizers of the third of the season Grand Slam tournament because of the situation in Ukraine refused to allow Russian and Belarusian tennis players to compete. 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 and WTA criticized the decision of the organizers of Wimbledon and LTA. Criticism was supported by leading tennis players, including the first racket of the world Serb Novak Djokovic and the former first racket of the world Briton Andy Murray.
