Bublik and the absence of the Russians at Wimbledon

Alexander Bublik is a naturalized Kazakh Russian tennis player and he also spoke on a story that has touched many insiders in recent days, namely the decision not to let athletes of Russian and Belarusian nationality attend Wimbledon.

In this regard, the tennis player replied honestly: "I do not judge whether it is right or wrong, but I think the organizers had the right to do this." Alexander then specified: "I have always considered sport as a distraction from the life of every day and I believe that sport and politics must be separated.

In a sport, the fan has the opportunity to watch a beer sitting on the sofa and cheer on their favorite athlete. It is a pity that at Wimbledon now this thing is limited." This season Bublik won the ATP tournament in Marseille where he beat the German Alexander Zverev in the final. Will see if this words will be consequences for the next tournaments of the Kazakh tennis player.
