Two months ago, the organizers of the All England Club banned Russian and Belarusian tennis players from participating in Wimbledon due to the invasion of Ukraine. They told The Times that the Dzalamidze could not prevent them from starting after a citizenship change.
Moscow native Dzalamidze last played at Roland Garros, where she stepped under a neutral flag alongside another Russian, Kamilla Rachimova, and was eliminated in the first round. The 29-year-old won two doubles titles on the WTA circuit. This year, they played with Rachimova in the finals in Istanbul in April, in which the Czech-Spanish duo Marie Bouzková and Sara Sorribesová lost.
