Ilie Nastase won’t be able to show off his military splendor in Wimbledon’s Royal Box this year.
All England Club chairman Philip Brook said the 70-year-old won’t receive his annual, exclusive invitation. Nastase’s crude behaviour during Romania’s Fed Cup last month came against the Great Britain’s squad.
If he tries to get in anyway – as he did in Constanta after he was kicked out – even with a ticket, he also may be out of luck. He “could be stopped at the gate”, AELTC chief executive Richard Lewis said.
