It would be good if FIL keeps their backs straight and just says "ok, bye" to refusing athletes. I know, not likely to happen, but still.

in a world without double standards they should ban those athletes (for 10 years) and countries (for 4 years) instead of just saying "Ok, bye"

 

but unfortunately we don't live in such a world. :thumbdown:

Obviously Russians competing for Kazakhstan (Rybakina, Putintseva) will be allowed to take part.

What’s the betting CAS makes a rapid decision if Russian and Belarusian tennis players go to court.
