Wimbledon has already landed at the center of controversy over a controversial poster that snubbed British legend Andy Murray.
In view of the start of the men’s and women’s singles, the tournament has released a poster that has outraged many fans, especially in the debate that has been created on social media.
Considering that the protagonists of the present and past of tennis were present in the poster, the initial social controversy arose on the absence of Andy Murray, two-time winner at the All England Club, from the poster.
said she was against this choice, while the former world number one seemed more disinterested in the matter.Murray said, as reported by The Times: “A disaster, isn’t it? I don’t think the problem with the poster is that I’m not on it.
Not being there is absolutely no problem.”The Scot then shifted his attention to another controversy that arose around this poster. In the foreground is men’s tennis, behind the poster are women tennis players from the present and the past.
Murray expressed on Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner
Returning to the theme of the men protagonists, Andy Murray also wanted to dwell on the fact that Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz were in the center of the poster, in the foreground.
The two rising stars are positioned ahead of other champions, who have won numerous trophies at Wimbledon: see Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.Murray told: “I imagine the tennis players who are on that poster have and have had incredible careers and incredible success at Wimbledon.
Alcaraz and Sinner are incredible players, but it just felt weird that they were ahead of everyone. Actually, it’s not a big thing, it’s just a poster.
Personally, I don’t attach so much importance.”Murray will return to English lawns: he is the only main draw player alongside Djokovic to have won the English tournament in the last 15 years. And he has great expectations for this edition.
