Natela Dzalamidze, a Russian-born tennis player, has changed her nationality to Georgian in order to evade the ban imposed by Wimbledon on all Russian players following the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

According to CNN, the world No. 43 doubles specialist is now officially recognized as having Georgian nationality on the WTA website and is allowed to compete with Serbian doubles partner Aleksandra Kruni? when Wimbledon begins on June 27.

This comes after Wimbledon announced in April that all Russian and Belarusian athletes will be barred from competing

Some of tennis’ biggest names will be absent at SW19, including men’s world No. 1 Daniil Medvedev and women’s world No. 6 Aryna Sabalenka.

A Wimbledon spokeswoman told The Times that they were unable to prevent Dzalamidze, who participated under the neutral flag at the French Open, from changing her nationality.

“Player nationality, defined as the flag they represent in professional events,” the representative explained, “is an agreed-upon method overseen by the Tours and the ITF.”

The tennis world has been divided by the ban on Russian and Belarusian players, and the US Open stated last week that it would not follow Wimbledon’s lead later this year, with players from both countries permitted to compete under a neutral flag.
