Albeit she’s represented Kazakhstan since 2018. 

A flag of convenience. She was born in Moscow and still primarily lives in Moscow, holds a Russian passport and pays taxes in Russia.

SW19 sending Putin a percentage of the winners cheque which was the situation they wanted to avoid when they banned the other Russian players.

Aye very fair points.

It does show what a folly of a decision that was by the LTA. Medvedev rumoured to be considering switching to represent France to get around future bans - which is where he has lived since he was a teenager. Won’t make him any less Russian, of course.
Anyway, gents final day. Hopefully we do not see a Kyrgios tanking and Djokovic getting an effective walk over, but would say that’s not unlikely.
I would argue that Kyrgios is the more naturally talented tennis player of the two. The difference is one of them has the mindset of stone cold champion and the other has the mindset of a petulant child.
Expect him to have arguments with the umpire, the referee, the crowd and line judges if it starts going against him.
Or he might keep his head screwed on, play the game of his life and win…

Serving like a demon!

Looks like he's really going for it on his 2nd serves as well.

 

As an aside, Djokovic should probably give up the pathetic "please love me" deal. If the crowd are still cheering on your opponent when your opponent is Nick Kyrgios then you're clearly just never going to win people over.
