MARSEILLE (ANP) – Tennis player Talon Cronbur may take part in an indoor tournament in Marseille this week. The organization has only scheduled its competition for the first round on Wednesday, which is why Greek Railways was able to complete its final visa process for the United States in Paris on Tuesday.
“The application has been approved and I can pick up my visa in three days,” said Cronbur, who traveled by train from Marseille to Paris and back on Tuesday. Netherlands No. 2 had to leave his passport in Paris, so he could not fly to the French capital.
Last Thursday, after he was eliminated from the ABN Amro World Tennis Championships in Rotterdam, the Greek track announced that he would be withdrawing from the ATP tournament in Marseille. “It’s a difficult situation, I do not know if everything will be alright. That visa has already caused me a lot of stress and distress. I have a priority number 1 on the US visa because I’ll leave it for many years. I want to leave a competition for filming,” the Greek track said.
The 25-year-old tennis player lost his passport at the end of 2020, forcing him to re-apply for a visa to the United States. The Greek track needs such a visa since he played two matches in Iran in 2015. Only with that visa – which he has not yet received due to circumstances – can he take part in the Masters of Indian Wells and Miami next month.
In Marseille, world number 60 France will face Lucas Puig on Wednesday.
