Wimbledon have had its ranking points stripped by the ATP and WTA tours.

The move comes because they decided to exclude players from Russia and Belarus at the 2022 Wimbledon Championships due to Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.

This means world number two Daniil Medvedev won’t be competing at Wimbledon 

This means one of the world’s most famous tennis tournaments will now be an exhibition event.

The All England Lawn Tennis Club, organisers of the event, said that the ban was the only option under British government guidance.
