Early advice from the ATP Tour and WTA Tour suggests that players’ ranking points will not be frozen during the 2021 event. Depriving players of the opportunity to defend ranking points won at the All England Club last year.

That means tennis icon Federer will no longer appear in the ATP Tour rankings. His only remaining points came from last year’s quarter-final at Wimbledon.

American tennis legend Serena Williams will also be wiped out of the top 1,000 of the WTA Tour rankings.

New York Times tennis reporter Ben Rosenberg tweeted that if Williams didn’t play for Wimbledon. She would also be “completely dropped from the rankings”.

Tennis journalist Jose Morgado tweeted: “Roger Federer and Serena Williams will vanish from the rankings after Wimbledon, even if they play the event”.

It was one of the many consequences of the decision to strip Wimbledon of ranking points.

Hungarian Marton Fucsovics, who reached the quarterfinals at Wimbledon last year, was one of the first to express anger at the ATP Tour’s decision.

He posted on Instagram: “From 2021 the ranking points will drop, there are no ranking points for Wimbledon. No chance to defend them. Are you serious about the ATP Tour? From 60th I would drop to 130th. Thanks”.

The Times reported that a British player privately told reporters that the ATP Tour’s decision was “damned insane”.

The development is also a blow to Novak Djokovic as he tries to maintain his number 1 position.

The 2021 Wimbledon singles champion Djokovic will lose all 2,000 ranking points for the tournament. This gives Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev an excellent opportunity to surpass him and become the world’s best players.

A further reaction from the players is expected as the sport tries to deal with the impact of the disappearing Wimbledon ranking points.

Federer recently says he still hopes to recover from a knee injury at the Laver Cup in September and his goal remains to return to Wimbledon in 2023.

The 38-year-old continues to recover from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.

He finds himself in the midst of a huge, chaotic power struggle at the top of the sports bureaucracy.

Wimbledon’s ban on Russian and Belarus players has already ruled out a slew of top players, including the men’s No. 2 Medvedev and last year’s Belarus semi-finalist Aryna Sabalenka, as well as two-time major champion Victoria Azarenka.

The All England Club said it was “deeply disappointed” by the conclusion.

“We understand that there was disagreement over our decision to ban Russian and Belarusian players from this year’s World Championships, and we deeply regret the impact this decision has had on the individuals affected,” the statement said.

“Given the UK government’s stance on limiting Russia’s global influence. The removal of automatic ranking access, and the broad response from government, industry, sport, and creative bodies. We still believe we have the only viable Wimbledon as globally known sporting events and decisions by British institutions, and we support the decisions we make.”

The ATP’s decision also came under fire from former Ukrainian player Sergiy Stakhovsky. They defeated Roger Federer at Wimbledon’s Center Court in 2013.

“To say I’m disappointed in @atptour would be an understatement. I never thought anyone could be on the side of invaders and killers. But in my opinion, even my fellow players are for the invaders of rus/blr and collaborators,” tweeted Stakhovsky. Who has joined the Ukrainian army in the fight against Russian aggression?

“A player who has not been able to broadcast any message that clearly condemns the invasion of Ukraine in 85 days. A Disgraceful day for tennis.”

The ATP did not close the door, adding that it still “hopes for further discussions with Wimbledon leading to an acceptable outcome for all concerned”.

The ATP added: “We take our long-standing partnership with Wimbledon very seriously and would not underestimate the difficult decisions. We have to make in responding to the UK government’s recent guidelines.”

The Wimbledon ban has been widely condemned. Especially as Russian and Belarusian players are still allowed to play in other tournaments, including the second French Open major of the season. Which opens on Sunday in Paris. Wimbledon 2022 fans can buy Wimbledon 2022 Tickets from our website.

Roger Federer sticks in contentious Wimbledon move

Wimbledon’s decision to scrap ranking points this year by refusing players from Russia and Belarus has had unintended consequences for one of the sport’s biggest stars.

The iconic grass-court tournament has been reduced to an exhibition this year, with the ATP and WTA announcing that no ranking points will be awarded if not all players at Wimbledon are free to play.

In response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Wimbledon officially announced a ban on players from Russia and Belarus.

Some of the top players, such as the men’s No. 2 Daniil Medvedev and the women’s leading challenger Aryna Sabalenka, were excluded from the competition.

The UK government is actively seeking sanctions against wealthy Russian citizens living and working in the country, and Wimbledon officials believe they have made the only “workable decision” they can.

Tennis fans had mixed reactions to the news. But the decision to strip Grand Slam points has implications for Roger Federer’s future.

The decision not to award points will have a major impact on the rankings. As Federer will disappear completely from the rankings after Wimbledon.

Federer’s only remaining ranking point comes from reaching the quarter-finals at Wimbledon last year, with the Swiss veteran already missing many points through injury.

The 40-year-old tennis superstar is not the only tennis superstar facing such a situation. Legend Serena Williams is likely to disappear from the rankings as well.

One player has already expressed disappointment over the move, with Hungarian Marton Fucsovics furious to learn he may have fallen in the rankings.

“No chance to defend them. Are you serious about the ATP Tour? From the 60th I drop to the 130th. Thank you.”

Wimbledon points move keeps world rankings moving

While players like Federer and Williams may disappear from the rankings altogether. The decision on ranking points will also have a decisive impact on the rankings.

Even if Wimbledon continues, players will still lose ranking points meaning defending champion Novak Djokovic will lose all 2,000 points since his win last year. Wimbledon 2022 fans can buy Wimbledon Tickets from our website.

That could open the door for Medvedev or German Alexander Zverev to challenge for first place.

The tennis board banned Russia and Belarus after the invasion of international team competitions. But allowed players from both countries to continue competing as neutrals.

“The ability of players of any nationality to compete on merit and without discrimination is the foundation of our tour,” the ATP said on Friday.

“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. It also violates our ranking agreement.”

These moves turned the most famous tennis tournament in the world into an exhibition event. Despite its considerable status and prize money.

“Given the UK government’s stance on limiting Russia’s global influence. The removal of automatic ranking access, and the broad response from government, industry, sport, and creative bodies. We still believe we have the only viable Wimbledon as a globally known sporting event and decisions of British institutions, we support the decisions we make.

“We would therefore like to express our deep disappointment at the decision of the ATP, WTA, and ITF to withdraw the Championship Ranking Points.”

“These decisions are disproportionate and disproportionate to all players on the tour. The position we find ourselves in, we believe that in the context of this particular and extreme situation.”

“We are also in talks with our Grand Slam teammates. We are considering maintaining our position and our options at this stage.”
