- ATP and WTA could suspend Queen’s Club and Edgbaston events
- Losing tournaments would be a £20m blow to LTA finances
The Lawn Tennis Association believes it faces an “existential threat” if the ban on Russian and Belarusian players continues and it is stripped of its prestigious pre-Wimbledon events such as Queen’s Club and Edgbaston.
While talks with the government and tennis continue – with a decision expected by early April – the LTA believes the threat from the ATP and WTA to suspend it from staging events if the ban remains is serious and could cause major damage to British tennis.
