Athletes who receive government funding will be denied entry to the tournament.

The same applies to sponsorship of companies that are under the state control or control of the Russian authorities.

At present, we intend to accept applications from Russian and Belarusian players, provided that they act as neutral athletes and comply with the relevant conditions, – Rossiya Segodnya quotes a statement from the club administration.

Subject to these conditions, Russian and Belarusian athletes will be admitted to all tournaments of the Association of Tennis Professionals and the Women’s Tennis Association.
