Russia-Ukraine war live updates: Zelensky addresses G-7 leaders; Russia defaults on foreign debt

WIMBLEDON, England — As the singles rankings shook out ahead of Wimbledon, 16 players from the top 100s will miss out because of the All England Club’s ban of athletes from Russia and Belarus. The club that organizes the world’s most revered tennis tournament made that decision in April because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and Belarus’s support of the invasion.

For the men, those are players ranked first, eighth, 22nd, 40th and 43rd — four Russians and a Belarusian. For the women, those are players ranked sixth, 13th, 20th, 21st, 30th, 35th, 47th, 69th, 78th, 83rd and 87th — eight Russians and three Belarusians.
