Barbora Krejcikova admits she’s ‘trying to avoid’ some Russian players.
There are Russian players, according to Barbora Krejcikova, who “are causing tension in the locker room.” There has been a lot of discussion in recent weeks about the alleged hostility between Ukrainian and Russian/Belarusian players.
One of the top Czech tennis players, Krejcikova, admits she is “trying to avoid” some Russian players and that there is indeed animosity in the locker room. I can feel it, yes. both sides of. However, certain Russians are the ones who make it.
We can observe what they do in the locker room even though they don’t speak in public. As for me, I try to stay away from them,” Krejcikova stated, according to Tennis-Infinity.
Krejcikova backs tennis players from Ukraine
The 2021 French Open champion Krejcikova claims she has supported Ukrainian players since Day 1.
Since the start of the conflict, I have been in touch with them. I wrote to them right away to check in and see if everything was alright and if I could be of any assistance. I made an effort to aid them. I keep up with the news, so I am aware of what is happening at home,” Krejcikova added.
The International Olympic Committee recently declared its decision to allow athletes from Belarus and Russia to compete at the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. Russian athletes shouldn’t be permitted to compete in Paris, in Krejcikova’s opinion.
“In my opinion, the Olympics have always been a celebration of peace and friendship. And it is obvious that the nation does not uphold these ideals if it is waging an aggressive war. Anyone who backs an assault on a neighboring nation has no business attending the Olympics, according to Krejcikova.
Players from Belarus and Russia will be permitted to attend Wimbledon this year. The AELTC has been under pressure to lift its ban on Russian and Belarusian players for several months from the ATP and WTA. Wimbledon formally announced the lifting of its ban on players from Belarus and Russia in late March.
