Polish sports minister to boycott Swiatek’s matches with Russians and Belarusians

Polish Sports Minister Kamil Bortnichuk said he would not participate in the matches of the world’s first racket player Igi Swiatek if he met athletes from Russia and Belarus.

“I completely disagree with the WTA and ATP policy regarding the performance of Russian and Belarusian players in tournaments. Tennis players from these countries will play in the tournament in Warsaw, so I decided to avoid matches with their participation.

I would like Iga Sventek to win this tournament. I will be happy to go to his matches. But I wish he didn’t have to play with Russians or Belarusians. If that happens, I won’t be at the match, even if we are talking about the final, ”bortnichuk i.pl quotes the words.
