David Nalbandian might not be allowed to play at Wimbledon

The Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) might not permit Argentinean-Armenian tennis star David Nalbandian to compete at Wimbledon, which will kick off on July 25.
The world’s 39th seed could be disqualified, writes The Sun.

To note, Nalbandian was given a technical defeat for injuring a linesman at the final of the ATP Queen’s Club tennis open held on June 17 in London.    

In the second set of his match against Croatia’s Marin Cilic, Nalbandian could not return a shot from the Croatian and, in rage, he kicked an advertising board placed under the legs of a linesman. As a result, the linesman’s shin sustained an injury.   

The event organizers decided to call off the match and give a technical defeat to David Nalbandian.
