OFFICIAL: The US Open will not be like Wimbledon, Medvedev can defend the title!

Wimbledon has made a decision to ban the participation of Russian and Belarusian tennis players, while the US Open has officially confirmed that it will not follow in the same footsteps!

This decision will affect Danilo Medvedev the most, who will now be able to officially defend the Grand Slam title and 2,000 points!

– Tennis has done a lot through humanitarian aid and support in Ukraine. Unfortunately, the need for help continues to grow. USTA will continue with a series of initiatives that will include significant financial assistance and other programs to further support the people of Ukraine – said Mike McNulty, President of USTA.

So, it is certain that all players, regardless of nationality, will be able to participate in the tournament in New York this season, which is on the program from August 29 to September 11.

True, Russian and Belarusian players like Medvedev, Victoria Azarenka, Karen Khachanov, Andrey Rublev and others will have to compete under a neutral flag.

Although, it is certainly better for them than not playing at the US Open
