No Wimbledon for Nasty Nastase

Save

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.
