Athletistic/ Others. International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach has criticized the management of Wimbledon after the withdrawal of tennis players from Russia and Belarus.

Earlier, the organizers of the Grand Slam tournament in London announced that Russian and Belarusian tennis players would not be allowed to participate in the tournament.

“In Paris, at Roland Garros, the Russians were allowed to play in a neutral status. In London, at Wimbledon, the government said no. How then can you guarantee fair international competition in your sport if the authorities of the countries make their own decisions, following their own political interests about who can play and who can’t? Today we’re talking about Russia and Belarus, and tomorrow it’s your country,” Bach is quoted by Inside the Games. .
