Russian and Belarusian players have been banned from Wimbledon 2022 due to the invasion of Ukraine.

Players from Russia and Belarus are also banned from playing any of the UK grass tournaments.

Men’s world number two player, Daniil Medvedev from Russia, and women’s world number four player, Aryna Sabalenka from Belarus, are the highest-ranked players to be affected by the ban.

The ban is only for players, so Russian and Belarusian coaches, umpires, and physiotherapists can all still be involved in the tournament.
