Serbian tennis player, Novak Djokovic has tagged the recent Russian and Belarusian players Wimbledon ban a “crazy” one.

The twenty-time grand slam champion criticized the decision made by Wimbledon organizers on Wednesday, after they announced that players from the two countries cannot participate in this year’s edition of the global competition, due to the situation in Ukraine.

The world No. 1 while speaking to reporters at the Serbia Open said, “I will always condemn war, I will never support war being myself a child of war.”

The talented tennis star who seemed to have an understanding of the effects of the war situation took reporters memory lane, reminding the public of what happened in 1999, emphasizing that it is usually not good when politics interferes with sport.

“I know how much emotional trauma it leaves. In Serbia, we all know what happened in 1999. In the Balkans, we have had many wars in recent history,” he told reporters.

“However, I cannot support the decision of Wimbledon, I think it is crazy. When politics interferes with sport, the result is not good.”
