WIMBLEDON: MEDVEDEV READY TO PLAY
Tennis world No. 2 Daniil Medvedev of Russia has said he is ready to play at Wimbledon if British tennis authorities lift a ban on Russian players due to the invasion of Ukraine.
Medvedev, who will return to competition at the Geneva Open next week after being proven to have a hernia, said this will be the first opportunity for him to tell other players about the ban,
announced April 20.
Wimbledon organizers have been challenged by the association of men’s (ATP) and women’s (WTA) tennis players as well as players like Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic for having banned Russian and Belarusian players from participating in the organized English Grand Slam from June 27 to July 10.
