PTR Expresses Concern
Hilton Head Island, SC — Professional Tennis Registry (PTR), although delighted by the issuance of a travel visa for Andy Ram, expresses deep concern about the denial of the same for Shahar Peer to compete in Dubai last week.
Peer’s ability to rise above in her statement of support of the decision to allow Ram to compete shows true sportsmanship at its best, however, PTR regrets any decision to use our great sport as a tool for discrimination.
