Andrey Rublev, who was one of the first champions to speak out about the conflict in Ukraine, continues to talk about the concern for political intervention in sport.
“I think politics has always been featured in sports. Everyone knows it. But I believe that by being united and doing good things for peace, tennis can be an example, maybe other sports will follow, maybe one day sport can be without politics. I believe that tennis can live without the intrusion of politics, because tennis is one of the rare sports to be independent from the rest of the disciplines. We have players from all over. We play in all countries. We travel all over the world »
