The short lawn tennis season is in full swing with the ATP tournaments in Eastbourne and Mallorca this week— and then there is Roehampton, the qualifying tournament for Wimbledon (that starts on Monday).
Wimbledon has banned Russian and Belarussian players from the tournament this year. The ATP and WTA (representing the players) have retaliated by announcing that no ranking points will be awarded for those that are allowed to play.
Seven-time Wimbledon champ Serena Williams (40), has been given a wildcard to play. Rafael Nadal (36) has announced he is good to go as well (he has had a lingering foot injury).
