Next up is the grass season but one player who may not be involved not for the want of trying is 16-year-old prodigy, Mirra Andreeva.
Losing out today to Coco Gauff at Roland Garros, Andreeva has been a revelation in Madrid and Paris gaining new fans and tennis traction.
But confirming to James Gray of i News today post match, she said she has yet to receive her visa to play at Wimbledon.
The journalist added that she would likely get a qualifying wildcard but also noted that she has not ever played on grass.
Aryna Sabalenka herself will also return after the ban of Russian and Belarusian players last year and also confirmed recently that she is still waiting which means that the next few weeks remain pivotal.

Mirra Andreeva hasn’t received her UK Visa to play Wimbledon. Aryna Sabalenka also posted something about not receiving her Visa a few weeks ago. This will likely be resolved in the coming weeks, but the players must be really anxious. Wimbledon starts in 1 month.
