Russian tennis player Karen Khachanov said he had not yet discussed with the team possible problems with continuing participation in European tournaments due to the alleged tightening of the visa regime for Russians.
On Friday, Khachanov lost to Norwegian Kasper Ruud in the US Open semifinals – 6:7 (5:7), 2:6, 7:5, 2:6. The 31-year-old Russian reached the semi-finals of the Grand Slam tournament for the first time in his career.
– What can I do? If they don’t let us come to Europe, I definitely can’t do anything. We didn’t really discuss anything. To be honest, I don’t watch the news. I don’t like reading them lately. I think directly of the tournaments in which I participate.
The US Open is unfortunately over for me. I am coming back home. I want to rest and see my son. I didn’t see him for several weeks, the whole trip to the United States, about six weeks. I really want to go home, see my family, relax a bit and then make a plan with my team where to play. Obviously we have already planned something, but things can still change, we will adapt to the situation.
My home in Russia? I was born in Russia and my hometown is Moscow, but I live in Dubai, so I will go there,” Khachanov said during the US Open press conference.
