ATP may freeze the rating on admitted players
Next week, the ATP will consider possible measures to protect Russian and Belarusian tennis players who have been banned from Britain’s tournaments, including Wimbledon, the Daily Mail reports. Steps to ensure fairness in the ATP rankings will be discussed, according to the source.
One option is to partially freeze the rankings of players who have been suspended from tournaments. A similar measure was used during the coronavirus pandemic. In this case, the ranking would take into account the past results of players in British tournaments.
Another proposal – to deprive British tournaments of the right to play ranking points, but this step is unlikely.
Earlier, ATP condemned the exclusion of Russian and Belarusian tennis players.
