The All England Tennis Championships, better known as Wimbledon, are back for the third grand slam of the season. The historic, lush green courses at SW19 in London will host some of the world’s best players with the legendary trophy.

But even before the first ball was hit, controversy erupted over organizers banning Russian and Belarusian players citing Russia’s war against Ukraine. The All England Club felt Vladimir Putin’s government could use the success of Russian players, such as world No. 1 Daniil Medvedev, as a propaganda tool.

In response, the ITF, ATP and WTA, the governing bodies for the sport, men’s and women’s tennis, have decided to strip the championships of all ranking points. The move has made the tournament more of an exhibition, but the crème de la crème of sport has still made the journey to London.
