Andy Murray withdrew before the race, while British women Emma Raducanu, Heather Watson, and Harriet Dart all suffered defeats.

While players staying with the French Open may like to focus on their tennis matches. A major hiatus has distracted many of the pros from this year’s tournament.

The debate erupted in the tennis world after it was announced that no ranking points would be given at Wimbledon. The sport’s next Grand Slam event, which starts next month.

The Tennis Professional Association (ATP) and the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) made the unprecedented decision in response to the All England club banning Russian and Belarusian players from SW19 due to its invasion of Ukraine.

Norrie has been one of the top players, claiming the sport’s star is “fighting for nothing” as a direct result of the decision.

“Obviously everything is going on in the war. It’s an extremely difficult situation, but for me it’s difficult,” he told reporters.

“You know, having a grand slam at home doesn’t give you ranking points, and with its heritage. You don’t fight for anything.”

“You’re playing this almost like an exhibition, so it’s hard for me to see that.”

“Obviously it’s a very tricky situation, but I’d like to see it still have points and still have something online.”

He added: “It has drastically changed the ranking system, they have taken almost 6,000 points off the entire system for no reason.”

“So it will disrupt the rankings and then a lot of players who did well last year will fall to Wimbledon.”

Norrie added that he sympathized with the difficulties facing the ATP and WTA, but supported the scoring. Wimbledon 2022 fans can buy Wimbledon Final Tickets from our website.

He said: “I want to score. Obviously, there’s a home run and there aren’t many games on grass and then all of a sudden there are no points.”

“I know it’s hard. There are complications everywhere. But for me, that’s how I feel.”

“Wimbledon is still a special event. But I don’t think you’re going to see a lot of top players play, you know.”

“Just take a break and get ready for the hardcourt events. Especially the ones where you don’t worry too much about money.”

“So I can see a lot of players, maybe some top players, and therefore not play. It will be interesting to see.”

The decision came shortly after the All England Club banned Russian and Belarusian players from the sport’s oldest Grand Slam tournament in April.

WTA chairman and chief executive Steve Simon said he strongly condemned the invasion of Ukraine. But that the All England Club had broken an agreement with the Tour.

The ATP said in its statement: “The ability of players of any nationality to compete on the basis of merit and without discrimination is the foundation of our Tour.”

“The Wimbledon decision to ban Russian and Belarusian players from playing in the UK this summer undermines this principle and the integrity of the ATP ranking system.”

Emma Raducanu urges Cameron Norrie to ‘accept’ Wimbledon pressure

Britain’s No. 1 Cameron Norrie has urged Emma Raducanu to “embrace” the pressure and attention of Wimbledon this summer.

Raducanu burst into the public eye last year. When he reached the fourth round of Wimbledon after being awarded a wildcard to the main draw.

After her shocking win at the US Open, expectations for her return have certainly risen significantly. Although second-round exits at the Australian Open and French Open have dampened expectations.

Norrie lost to Karen Khachanov in the third round of the French Open. Admitted the pressure on Raducanu was not easy to control but believed she can “let her tennis speak”.

“She got a lot of attention after the US Open. I don’t think it would be any easier to play at Wimbledon,” said Norrie. “

Hopefully, she will embrace it. She knows how much attention she’s going to get. It becomes more.

“She needs to keep herself low and continue to enjoy tennis and I’m sure she’s looking out for grass. I think it’s one of her best surfaces too. It’s going to be fun.”

“When I was 19, I did things differently than she does now. She dealt with more stressful situations and bigger moments than I did at the same age. I had fun in college and lived a more normal life.

“She is very mature and speaks well and hopefully she can make her tennis talk at Wimbledon. She played well there last year. Hopefully, she can take advantage of the home crowd – people will love her.”

Raducanu is currently expected to return to grass at the Rothesay Classic in Birmingham, which starts on June 13.

“It’s very good to go home and play on your own ground. It will be a little weird at first because I’ve been playing clay for so long and I think it’s been weeks.”

“I may have been a bit shocked at the beginning. But I’m really looking forward to playing in front of the home fans and all the support.”

Since her fairytale wins in New York. Raducanu has struggled with fitness and has gone through a series of coaching journeys.

Meanwhile, her worldwide popularity has skyrocketed and so has her world ranking – she is currently No. 12 – and Norrie hopes she will welcome her back to Wimbledon with open arms.

“At 19 I did things differently than she does now. She had to deal with more pressure and bigger moments. Then when I was the same age,” said Norrie, the last Briton to compete in singles. The ongoing French Open until his third-round loss on Friday.

The 19-year-old Raducanu got off to a flying start after reaching the fourth round at SW19 in 2021 and won his first major at the US Open later that year.

But she didn’t extend that success to 2022, with second-round exits at the Australian and French Opens. However, Norrie believes she will still be in the spotlight at her home Grand Slam.
