Daria Kasatkina, a top-ranked Russian female player, has not ruled out switching citizenships. Kasatkina, who is only 25 years old, was barred from participating at Wimbledon due to her nationality alone. Players like Kasatkina and others from Russia are now considered “neutrals” as of early March.
I believe that many bright kids would be granted citizenship if their families were given a helping hand. Since we can’t go to Wimbledon and have no idea what’s going to happen, everyone is asking a lot of questions “Kasatkina stated, as reported by Tennis365.
Not surprisingly, Kasatkina isn’t too pleased to be feeling the repercussions of Russia’s actions in Ukraine. They took our World Championship away from us, and there’s no telling if or when we’ll see it again.
Even more so, with the Olympics in the mix. To sum up, we’re aliens. The next step is beyond my comprehension “This, Kasatkina elaborated.
Kasatkina, asked if she would consider becoming a citizen of another country
Kasatkina responded, “We will see.”
Kasatkina wants the war to end and she has expressed sympathy for the Ukrainian people. “I want war to stop. Since February 24 (when Russia invaded Ukraine), there hasn’t been a day that has gone by where I haven’t read some news or given some thought to the day passing “Quote from Kasatkina:
“Truthfully, I feel absolutely nothing about it (the war). Thank God, I haven’t been affected in the slightest, what with Wimbledon and all. However, those who have family in Ukraine, especially when discussing Russia, can attest to the country’s unique charms. To put it simply, I have no concept of what they are going through.
Everything about this situation is a nightmare. I would do anything in my power to put an end to it right this second, but alas, I cannot.” Meanwhile, Kasatkina played this week in Hamburg, where she lost to Katerina Siniakova in the first round.
