Wimbledon, Rybakina: Russia-Kazakhstan controversy - La Gazzetta dello Sport

After the victory in London, the Russian Federation provided “leadership” by adopting the company of the Kazakh: “Wow, we won Wimbledon”. From Astana: “You didn’t believe her”

“Our Product”. This is how Russia defines new Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina. Born and raised in Moscow, in 2018 the Kazakh-born star “celebrated” on Russian social media and media. The No. 1 player of Moscow Federtennis said: “Wow! Great Rybakina, we won the Wimbledon tournament. He was echoed by former world No. 1 Yevgeny Kafelnikov, who expressed his view on Twitter: “Buying something ready to use. A product from a top-level factory is something everyone knows how to do…”.

In short, a real dispute between Russia and Kazakhstan. The tennis star’s parents still live in Moscow, and she struggled to talk about Putin’s country after the victory: “The transition from a junior to a professional career is very difficult – she told Kazakh media after returning from London. -. We need a high-level team, not everyone can continue and win. Very few. Get it, I was very lucky for this. So no, I disagree with Tarpyshev’s sentence “.


Along with Rybakina, in a meeting with the Kazakh media, Federer was accompanied by tennis president Polsky, who argued with his Russian rival: “If this victory is the product of Russia, why did they allow it like this? Easily? In 2018, when Elena came to us, Tarpyshev stated that he did not consider her a promising player … However, this controversy I would say it is appropriate to conclude, it has already been said too much “.
