Wimbledon boycott continues as Denis Shapovalov admits French Open pressure of points ban | Tennis | Sport


A former semi-finalist at Wimbledon, the current world No 13 Ostapenko said: “If there are no points I’m not really sure what I am going to do.” She also blasted the decision to remove points as unfair, though also held out some hope for the tours to reverse their decision and allow players to earn ranking points for their efforts.

“If there are no points, I’m not really sure what I’m gonna do. I still want to focus on this tournament, and after, I want to see,” the 2017 French Open champion said, undecided on whether she would compete. “Because I feel like it’s a little bit unfair to play the tournament when there are no points and you kind of, you can win the tournament and then you don’t move one spot up in the ranking. So it’s a little bit strange. 

“But of course it’s a very prestigious tournament, so still, I mean, of course I love Wimbledon and I want to play it. Hopefully, I don’t know, something will change within the next few weeks.”
