in response to Russia's attack on Ukraine, the European table tennis union in March excluded all Russian and Belarusian teams from international competitions. Since the two Champions League semi-finalists Fakel Orenburg and Ummc Jekaterinburg were also affected, the Düsseldorf team were declared the Champions League winner after their semi-final success against 1. FC Saarbrücken.

Both Russian clubs and the Russian association appealed against this decision and were at least partially right. According to a judgment of the "Board of Appeal" of the ETTU, Russian and Belarusian national teams, but not Russian and Belarusian clubs from European Cup competitions, may be suspended.

The ETTU applied for a review of this decision in May, but now, at least in parts of the sports court judgment, to "protect the players, participants and the integrity of the competition", as the statement states. After consulting all affected clubs and the marketer of the Champions League, the 2021/22 season was declared without a winner. The "Board of Appeal" had ordered that all outstanding semi-finals and final games still have to be played. However, the Düsseldorfers declared early not to compete against a Russian team.

"The decision of the ETTU is not unexpected for us," said Borussia manager Andreas Preuss. “The clubs now have other squads, have new players under contract, others no longer, so that it is no longer technically possible to play the games. All arguments have been exchanged in the past few weeks. Now there is a judgment and we accept that. ”

The Twins have released reliever Joe Smith.The 38-year-old side-slinger appeared in 34 games for the Twins this season, pitching to a palatable 4.61 ERA. His usage was fairly protected, however, compiling only 27 1/3 total innings, and his peripheral numbers suggest a performance that doesn’t exactly fall in line with his prolific career. Smith’s 6.29 FIP was the worst such mark of his career, and his hard hit percentage rose to 42.1 percent, well-above the league average mark of 35.7 percent.
