6:32 pm
that british tennis has banned russian and belarussian players from wimbledon and the other grasscourt tournaments this summer, such as queens, and nottingham and eastbourne becasue of the invasion of ukraine. the all england club say they want to play their part in limiting russias global influence in the circumstances of such unjustified and unprecedented military aggression. the former top 20 player and grand slam quarterfinalist alex dolgopolov spoke to me from kiev earlier about the decision. we are happy with the decision. as i said before, i believe if all the world is united and is trying to stop all of this and push the russian government and nothing is working then the only way this can stop is the russian people push the russian government. and i think is most of them continue living their
6:33 pm
normal lives, that's not really going to change much. they are not going to change much. they are not going to change much. they are not going to speak up, they are not going to speak up, they are not going to speak up, they are not going to see that something is wrong. and i believe the more people gets affected by this war not only ukrainians but russians the more they will change their mind and understand that they have to stop this. understand that they have to stop this, ., understand that they have to stop this. ., , , ., understand that they have to stop this. ., ,, ., , , this. some of the russian players bein: this. some of the russian players being denied _ this. some of the russian players being denied the _ this. some of the russian players being denied the right _ this. some of the russian players being denied the right to - this. some of the russian players being denied the right to take - this. some of the russian players i being denied the right to take part, do you feel sorry for them as individuals or do you feel that if they want to play they have to stand up they want to play they have to stand up and denounce president putin and denounce the russian action? sure. i believe for sure _ denounce the russian action? sure. i believe for sure they _ denounce the russian action? sure. i believe for sure they are _ denounce the russian action? sure. i believe for sure they are famous, - believe for sure they are famous, and they should say something, you know? if they don't accept this and if they don't support this then that's another thing. they would stand up and say ok, we are against
6:34 pm
this war, we are against the actions of our country and just step away from those actions. and that's a another thing a decision like this would be tougher. but at the moment, i don't see them speaking out. the stand that british tennis is making on this, you are just can hope stand that british tennis is making on this, you arejust can hope i guess that the wta, the atp tour that they can follow suit as well. as it stands russians are allowed to compete in that. the french open as i'm speaking now, they will allow russian and belarusian players who take part. for russian and belarusian players who take art. ., , , ., take part. for sure, i said before that i think _ take part. for sure, i said before that i think tennis _ take part. for sure, i said before that i think tennis has _ take part. for sure, i said before that i think tennis has taken - take part. for sure, i said before that i think tennis has taken a i take part. for sure, i said before i that i think tennis has taken a week stand than is needed in the situations like this. the magnitude of the situation also matters. the details of the situation it matters, what's happening on the ground. what
6:35 pm
were seeing, although atrocity, if it was just a fight of the army this one thing but when leaders of big countries are calling it genocide, it's another thing. so the actions have to be equal. and hopefully the tennis world start speaking up. because i think the actions they took is not enough to what's happening here.— took is not enough to what's happening here. took is not enough to what's hauenina here. ., ~' . happening here. thank you so much for “oininu happening here. thank you so much forjoining us- _ happening here. thank you so much forjoining us. stay _ happening here. thank you so much forjoining us. stay safe. _ alex dolgopolov, who retired last year and is back home in his native ukraine and helping with the war effort. let's speak to our tennis correspondent russel fuller. really strong stand from wilmington and the lta fell into line and followed suit. the men's store, they are not happy with this at all. hot are not happy with this at all. not
6:36 pm
at all. are not happy with this at all. not at all- and _ are not happy with this at all. not at all. and the _ are not happy with this at all. iirrt at all. and the wta, the women store even though there is not spoken publicly yet will share the atps misgivings. the men's tour have described it is unfair. they go on to say in a statement that it sets a damaging precedent to the game and they refer to discrimination based on nationality. they say it's a violation of their agreement with wimbledon, the agreement that player should enter an ranking alone. that's why a colossal 2000 ranking points rewarded to the winner. the lta know that they are potentially in hot water by making this decision because you think of the queens cup event two weeks before wimbledon, thatis event two weeks before wimbledon, that is an lta event that signed to run. there are potentially penalties such as fines that could be heading their way for taking what they consider a very principled stance. could this go any further, could it end up in court? we've got some big players who as it stands our pretty redundant forjune and july. what
6:37 pm
about the french open? they say that russians and belarusians can take part. do you see them following wimbledon, could they be any clan doing a grand slam solidarity? players always have the right, particularly those with deep pockets to take legal action, restraint of trade. that may be less likely then perhaps the atp taking action against the all england club and the lta in particular. as far as ron garris is concerned, we saw the entry list read least a week or so ago for the grand slam that begins in paris at the end of may, was a russian players, belarusian players, we thought that's decision taken. 0n reflection we are in this. in france at the moment. two weeks before the first and second round of the presidential election, that concludes on sunday. it is possible that there may be some news next week. that may not be set in stone. thank you.

6:50 pm
unhappy about aspects of the contract. the build up between the two camps have been very acrimonious with w wondered what would happen when they start each other today. they were very spiked doing that respect. tyson fury talked about the fact they've known each other for a long time and train together in the early 20s. he's paid dillon whyte respect by preparing hard for this because he is expecting a tough test on saturday night but up in front of 95,000 fight fans here at wembley stadium. mostly two fighters were quiet calm, it was interesting that their entourage, things that he did amongst them put up a bit of pushing and shoving it was tyson fury and dillon whyte that had to separate them. that is reasoning is our moment and tyson fury say so close to such a big occasion he didn't want anything to ruin the prospect of the cycle through. it was interesting that both men really understand the magnitude of what can happen on saturday night. dillon whyte has nothing to lose, he's been waiting it off a long time to get the opportunity to challenge the heavyweight title. i went to his camp in portugal a few weeks ago, of

6:52 pm
issue, they wanted them to focus on what is a huge i here on saturday night. history was made at the crucible today. hossein vafaei has become the first iranian to compete at the world snooker championship. vafaei came through two rounds of qualifying to make his debut before he took to the table, he spoke to our reporter jamie broughton. it's been a long journey for hossein vafaei to get to snooker�*s most iconic venue. he's been dreaming of playing at the crucible since he first picked up a queue at the age of six. everyone saying and never been here, everyone saying this is great venue for snooker. we all dream to play here and i think the crucible is the home of the snooker. if some players, they don't like to be here they must be on tough luck. so that is a reason. very big achievement for me and my country and the middle east players and believe that they can do this as well.
6:53 pm
i'm the youngest in whoever playing the sport. we've done it. and they can do it as well. a global tv audience of around 275 million people watch the world championship every year. but the pressure to do well from the fans in iran does not worry him. of course. that's put lots of pressure on me. but i like it, we are working hard to get a situation, that is the hardest to get in that kind of situation. you have to deal with it, all the top players deal with it and that's why they can show the good performance. the iranians first round opponent is the 2019 world championjudge trump. he's a great player, i think is one of the players still improving. ——judd he's a great player, i think is one of the players still improving.
6:54 pm
there's a lot of good players that were in the first round but he's one on the up. and one day i think he could probably break into the top ten at some point. i think with a bit more experience. it's a career highlight for every. player to act town these famous steps for the first time - in into this famous auditorium. but hossein vafaei isn't just happy to be here, he wants to make history as iran's first world champion. that's good to be very big not only in iran but all over the world with an iranian be in the world championship. i hope that happens and i'm trying my best to make that happen. how has his debut gone? pretty well againstjudge trump. the iranian lost the first three games for the bebop fought back, drew level trump made sure the tear had reese strained that. irenes 6—3. that match will reach its conclusion tomorrow evening. doing really well there, hossein vafaei. all on bbc sport website.
