Wimbledon bosses are in talks with the government to decide if players from Russia and Belarus should be allowed to compete in this years tournament.

As of now, Russian and Belarusian players have been allowed to compete on tour – without using their countries flags.

Men’s world number two Daniil Medvedev is amongst those who have been playing abroad.

Now, The All England Lawn Tennis Club say the matter is “complex and challenging”.

In a statement, they said: “We plan to announce a decision ahead of our entry deadline in mid-May.”

“We have noted the UK government’s guidance regarding the attendance of Russian and Belarusian individuals in a neutral capacity at sporting events in the UK.

“We are continuing to engage in discussion with the UK government, the Lawn Tennis Association and the international governing bodies of tennis.”

Players from both countries have faced a range of suspensions/sanctions across a range of different sports and sporting bodies so far.

With Wimbledon beginning on 27th June, the future of Russian stars will need to be decided by next month
