During the WTA 1000 tournament held in Cincinnati, USA, the media circulated a video of the match between two Russian women.
At one point an unusual situation occurred. The judge approached the woman with the Ukrainian flag and ordered her to leave the stand or hide the Ukrainian flag. He insisted that this behavior would provoke Russian soldiers.
In the first matches of the WTA 1000 tournament in Cincinnati, two Russians played together: Anastasja Potapova and Anna Kalinskaja. The match ended with the victory of the second player with the score of 7: 5, 6: 1.
The judge threw a woman off the stage with a Ukrainian flag
During the break, the judge left the stool and turned to the woman holding the Ukrainian flag. Kibika was sitting wrapped only in it and had a wreath on her head.
However, the judge concluded that such behavior incites Russian soldiers.
– It’s something to see the communist WDA at work … they ordered to leave the court for peaceful protest against the Russian invasion – commented the video in such words.
Ukrainian tennis player Marta Kostzhuk also shared.
