Russian player changes nationality to participate in ‘Tennis Wimbledon’

A Russian player has found a way around the tennis ban imposed by Wimbledon on Russians and Belarusians as a result of the invasion of Ukraine by changing her nationality to Georgian, according to a report published by the British newspaper “The Times”.

And now the world’s number 44, Natella Dzalamidze, can compete in the women’s doubles together with Serbian Alexandra Krunic when the third major tournament starts on June 27.

And the All England Club, which hosts Wimbledon, decided in April to ban the participation of Russians and Belarusians because of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which means the absence of major players and players, led by world number one Daniel Medvedev, his compatriot Andrey Rublev, Belarusian Arina Sabalenka and her compatriot Victoria Azarenka.
