Problems on all sides in the world of tennis this season, it all started with Novak Djokovic who was not allowed to participate in the Australian Open, and then continued in turn in other tournaments in America, and Wimbledon banned Russian and Belarusian tennis players from playing matches in London at the third Grand Slam this season. Not only that, Wimbledon will not carry points, by the decision of the ATP, which will damage those who had a great result in this tournament last season, which could only be prestigious if that decision is not withdrawn.
What is the way to withdraw the decision?
The director of ATP expressed his opinion.
“If Wimbledon withdraws the decision to ban Russians and Belarusians from playing, we will return the points immediately. Russian and Belarusian tennis players have said they are ready to sign statements that none of them is for war,” Andrea Gaudenci pointed out.
Are we on the verge of a solution?
“It is a question of equality of tennis players. The unilateral decision of the tournament was not correct, and this situation again emphasizes the necessity of creating one body that will lead complete tennis,” he points out. He also explained the decision to delete the points, although it was different during the pandemic.
“It would not be correct to have points from last year in the rating from this year. The only way to have a fair placement this year is to have the points deleted. At the end of the year, only points from this year can be in the rating. If we save points for players who “We played Wimbledon last year, then we will be unfair to these others. We cannot protect seven or eight tennis players at the expense of everyone else,” said Andrea Gaudenci.
