“The declaration of neutrality for participation in Wimbledon is no different from last year” – president of the Belarusian Tennis Federation

President of the Belarusian Tennis Federation Sergei Rutenko told that the declaration of neutrality that Russian and Belarusian athletes must sign to participate in Wimbledon is no different from a similar document from last year.

Earlier, the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC), where Wimbledon is held, said all tennis players from Russia and Belarus would be required to sign a declaration of neutrality to participate in the tournament.

— The declaration of neutrality required by Wimbledon is no different from that of last year, it does not contain any new points. Last year we studied this issue with Shamil Anvyarovich (Tarpishchev) and, as a result, tennis players from both countries played. The only problem is that there is some bureaucracy in obtaining visas. In particular, because of this, Alena Faley will not play in Paris,” Rutenko told .

In 2022, Russian and Belarusian tennis players were not allowed to participate in Wimbledon. In response, the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) stripped the tournament of ranking points. In 2023, Russians and Belarusians were able to participate in the competition after signing a declaration of neutrality.

The Grand Slam tournament on grass will take place from July 1 to 14 in the United Kingdom.
