Ludmilla Samsonova Russia
In July 2021, she explained her decision as a result of the added pressure of competing for the Italian national team, a country where tennis is more popular than in Russia, where she feels she is only competing for herself, especially given her “boom boom” hard-hitting game style.
In light of a significant number of local players switching from the Russian flag, Russian sources were more specific about all of the reasons behind the unusual switch after turning 18. According to Tennis Weekend, Samsonova encountered difficulties in obtaining an Italian passport, and the Italian Tennis Federation provided limited support for her as an immigrant. She continues to train outside of Russia because she is dissatisfied with the domestic conditions for professional tennis provided by the Russian Tennis Federation. Samsonova clarified in October 2021 that she has never had Italian citizenship and thus has never had to choose between the two flags.
