Visagate 2 - Shahar's visa hasn't arrived

Concern in the Israeli camp, as Shahar's Visa to Bali hasn't arrived yet.Indonesia has pulled out of Fed cup against Israel in 2006, and any refusal on their part to grant the Israeli the Visa wouldn't surprise anyone.

Amit Naor (Djoko's agent, who usually deals with all of those issues for the Israeli players) said he was promised the tournament would be canceled if Shahar won't get the visa.

Early days. To be continued...It would be a terrible shame if she couldn't play after qualifying.

Re: Visagate 2 - Shahar's visa hasn't arrived

I agree that the tournament should be cancelled if they don`t give visa to Shahar.
I hope the WTA has another place to replace Bali in this case.

Indeed. Again? Bali should be banned from organising any events.

I hope her visa will come through soon, but if not, they really do have to cancel the tournament. It's horrible, and I hope the WTA is right on top of this.

Will be interesting to see what Stacey Allaster would do if Shahar is denied.

Re: Visagate 2 - Shahar's visa hasn't arrived

I do hope shahar would be able to play

1 in 20 people has been a victim of crime. Which means that 19 out of 20 people are criminals.

Foreign policy, it's not the tournament's fault if she doesn't get accepted, time to move on.

Of course it`s not tournament fault. But WTA can`t have tournaments in countries which don`t allow all players to come there.

Re: Visagate 2 - Shahar's visa hasn't arrived

i feel sorry for Shahar and she deserves the right to play a tournament like this
However, each country also has the right to grant and refuse visas and if the indonesian gov dosnt grant visas to Israelis in general then its not unusual or surprising... That said i still think she should b given the visa cause she can represent a different side of israel and wont b there promoting a Zionist cause or anything other than her sport and her ability
