RTF chief Tarpishchev has no doubt that Russian tennis players will appear at Wimbledon
MOSCOW, January 25 – RIA Novosti, Elizaveta Denisova. Shamil Tarpishchev, President of the Russian Tennis Federation (RTF), is confident that Russian tennis players will take part in Wimbledon in 2023, since qualifying for the Grand Slam tournament is based on ratings.
Earlier, the former world’s first racket, American Billie Jean King, had called for Russian and Belarusian tennis players to participate in the Wimbledon tournament in 2023.
In April, the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) refused to allow Russian and Belarusian tennis players to participate in the 2022 tournament due to the situation in Ukraine. It was noted that the recommendations of the British authorities were taken into account in solving the problem. In response, the Tennis Professionals Association (ATP) and Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) have decided not to award Wimbledon ranking points.
