Tennis players are effectively sole traders and as much as their birthplace is something that's referenced, the idea that because the country you were born in decides to go to war that means you're guilty by association and so should be banned from playing doesn't seem right to me. It's the same for the national teams as well really, but I can see that they are much more strongly associated with their countries as they play under the name of their country. For a tennis player, for example, Medvedev plays Nadal. Medvedev is Russian, Nadal is Spanish but that's not the way it's looked upon - it's Medvedev v Nadal not Russia v Spain like it is in international team sports.
