Azerbaijan Tennis Federation appeals to International Tennis Federation over provocation against Azerbaijan

Baku, January 21, AZERTAC

The Azerbaijan Tennis Federation (ATF) has sent a letter of protest to the International Tennis Federation regarding the provocation against Azerbaijan at the Australian Open Tennis Grand Slam.

Karen Khachanov, a Russian athlete of Armenian origin, who reached the 1/16 finals in the men`s competition, attracted attention with his hateful act. Thus, after claiming 3:1 victory over his American rival Frances Tiafoe, Khachanov wrote "Artsakh stay strong" on the camera as his heartfelt words.

The Azerbaijan Tennis Federation`s letter presented facts and legal documents regarding the provocation against Azerbaijan. The ATF condemned this act and demanded that the tennis player be punished and urged the International Tennis Federation to take harsh measures for prevention of such incidents in the future.
