Russian player Zvonareva blocked from entering Poland

Russian tennis player Vera Zvonareva was denied entry into Poland on Friday due to concerns regarding state security and public safety, according to the Polish interior ministry. Zvonareva, who won a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, was scheduled to participate in the BNP Paribas Warsaw Open tournament starting on Monday. The ministry stated that Zvonareva attempted to enter Poland using a visa issued by France, but was stopped by the Border Guard upon her arrival from Belgrade to Warsaw. She remained in the transit zone of Warsaw Chopin Airport before departing for Podgorica later in the day. The ministry clarified that Zvonareva is on a list of individuals considered undesirable in Poland. This decision aligns with Poland’s strong support for Ukraine since the Russian invasion in 2022, leading to the refusal of entry to individuals who endorse the actions of Russia and Belarus. The tournament organizers have not yet responded to requests for comment.
