Male and female tennis organizations and some players have spoken out against the decision to exclude Belarusians and Russians from participating in the Grand Slam tournament, with Nadal specifically calling the ruling “unfair.” But Daniil Medvedev is still holding out hope of making an appearance at Wimbledon.
As retaliation for what Russia calls a “special military operation” in Ukraine, the AELTC has banned tennis players from both nations from participating in this year’s Wimbledon tournament.
While the AELTC claimed to have made its judgment after speaking with the government, Medvedev is still holding out hope that the decision would be overturned.
Daniil Medvedev Opens Up About The Ruling Against Him
The Russian, who has been out of action for the last six weeks due to a hernia procedure, will be back in action in Geneva, but he is unsure whether his choice is final.
If I’m well enough, I’d want to compete in Wimbledon. To put it simply, I adore this competition. Daniil Medvedev remarked, “If I can’t compete this year, I’ll attempt to play in other events and be ready for next year.”
If the ban is not lifted, Wimbledon, the most prestigious tennis tournament in the world, may have its ranking points taken away by the two circuits, making it essentially a glorified demonstration.
Since I have no control over the situation, I’ve been doing my best to stay informed. At this time, Daniil Medvedev believes that “Wimbledon itself,” the ATP, and maybe the British government are all at stake.
It’s a thorny issue, and a survey of a hundred gamers would get a hundred different responses, just as in the real world.
As an example, if you showed a hundred individuals a tennis ball, some of them may claim it was green. According to my eyes, it’s yellow. But if someone else insists it’s green, I’m not going to argue.
