Wimbledon controversy: Jeevan supports ATP, WTA option to dock position components

But
the
contact
has
located
a
wholehearted
supporter
in
Indian
ace
Jeevan
Nedunchezhiyan.

The
ATP
and
WTA
experienced
arrived
at
the
determination
to
strip
Wimbledon
of
position
factors
immediately after
the
All
England
Club
determined
to
bar
Russian
and
Belarusian
gamers
from
competing
in
the
oldest
Grand
Slam.

They
took
the
conclusion
subsequent
Russia’s
invasion
of
Ukraine
and
even though
French
Open up
did
not
bar
the
Russian
gamers,
Wimbledon
took
the
extreme
phase.

“Individually,
I
really feel
it is
a
good
decision.
As
qualified
players,
we
need
to
assistance
the
stand
taken
by
our
association.
I
feel
it really is
a
brave
and
brave
determination,”
Jeevan
advised
a
team
of
invited
journalists
in
a
virtual
media
conversation
hosted
by

Sony
Athletics
Community
,
who
have
the
excluisve
broadcast
legal rights
of
French
Open
2022
in
India.

The
ATP
justified
the
selection,
expressing
the
move
was
to
shield
the
integrity
of
the
sport,
which
was
developed
upon
merit-dependent
event
entry
as a result of
rankings
and
a
amount
participating in
discipline.

The
WTA
concurred
to
it,
basing
its
choice
on
its
foundational
theory
of
equal
chance,
championed
by
the
legendary
Billie
Jean
King.

Jeevan
said
a
good deal
of
believed
should
have
long gone
just before
arriving
at
this sort of
a
final decision.

“It
must’ve
been
a
difficult
conclusion
to
make
for
ATP/WTA.
Certainly,
there
must’ve
been
a
lot
of
phone
calls
between
gamers
and
the
associations
as
how
to
commence
with
this
one of a kind
situation.

In
these kinds of
a
state of affairs,
the two
ATP
and
WTA
experienced
to
consider
a
rough
stand,
which
they’ve
taken
in
the
larger sized
interest
of
the
sport,”
he
said.

“The
point
is
that
they are
showing
aid
and
getting
into
self confidence
those people
players
who
can’t
make
it
to
Wimbledon
mainly because
of
the
stand
taken
by
the
All
England
club,”
he
extra.

Jeevan Neduncheziyan

Jeevan
Neduncheziyan
has
backed
the
ATP/WTA
determination.

Grand
Slam
champions
Daniil
Medvedev
(Russia)
and
Victoria
Azarenka
(Belarus)
experienced
led
the
chorus
from
ATP
and
WTA
versus
the
All
England
Club
decision.

Jeevan
hopes
a
solution
will
be
located
quickly.

“This
is
an
unparalleled
condition.
We
do not
know
what’ll
transpire
in
the
coming
months.
Ideally,
anything
will
get
sorted
out
before long,”
he
included.

Medvedev
and
other
Russian
gamers
are
competing
in
French
Open
which
is
now
underway
at
the
Roland
Garros.

Jeevan,
who
is
1
of
the
panelists
for

Sony
Sporting activities
Network

for
the
clay-court docket
Grand
Slam,
was
at
his
diplomatic
very best
when
asked
to
decide on
his
favorite
for
the
title.

“In
the
women’s
it
has
to
be
Iga
(Swiatek)
for
confident.
She’s
been
in
amazing
sort
given that
February
and
has
been
on
a
roll.

In
the
men’s
segment,
I
cannot
feel
further than
one particular
off
Novak
(Djokovic)
and
Rafa
(Nadal).
Looks
like
they’re going to
conclude
up
assembly
in
the
quarterfinals
this
time
and
it really is
great
for
men’s
tennis.
Rafa
has
received
it
now
13
periods
and
immediately after
seeing
his
very first-round
general performance,
I
will not
be
suprised
if
he
adds
a different
far more
to
his
cupboard.
And
if
you’re
wanting
for
darkish-horses
then
you’ve got
Carlos
Alcaraz
and
Stefanos
Tsitsipas.”

Jeevan
also
sympathised
with
the
plight
of
former
US
Open up
winner
Dominic
Thiem,
who
dropped
in
the
1st
spherical.

“He
has not
gained
nearly anything
considering the fact that
his
comeback.
What
I
really feel
is
that
he
has
by no means
been
the
participant
he
was
after
winning
2020
US
Open.
His
mindset
has
never
been
the
same
following
that
triumph
and
his
drive
has
rather
gone
down.
If
he
can
display
the
similar
starvation
and
enthusiasm
that
he
did
just before
winning
his
maiden
Grand
Slam,
then
he
can
be
the
very same
previous
participant.

“I
heard
he
is
setting up
to
participate in
in
some
Challenger
tournaments
to
get
his
mojo
back.
it truly is
fantastic
for
him,
the
more
you
engage in
and
win,
the
more
your
self esteem
degrees
will
be.”

Ahead of
signing
off,
Jeevan
also
had
a
word
of
praise
for
compatriot
Sania
Mirza,
who
is
on
her
last
12 months
on
the
WTA
circuit,
acquiring
announced
that
she
will
be
hanging
up
her
racquets
at
the
conclusion
of
the
time.

“Sania
(Mirza)
is
player
who
presents
her
most effective
all
the
time.
Irrespective
of
whom
she
associates
in
doubles,
she’s
someone
who
can
defeat
any
opponent
on
a
presented
working day.
I
hope
she
ends
the
period
on
a
high.”
