Wimbledon stripped of ranking points for banning Russian and Belarusian players

Wimbledon has been stripped of its world ranking points in response to organisers banning Russian and Belarusian players from competing at this year’s tournament.
The ATP, which governs the men’s game, said Wimbledon’s move earlier this year undermines the principle of players qualifying on merit and was “inconsistent” with its rankings agreement.
It said its decision was taken with “great regret and reluctance” but that “discrimination by individual tournaments is simply not viable on a Tour that operates in more than 30 countries”.
