She defeated top seed and compatriot Tasnim Mir in straight games in the women’s singles final. Tasneem could not stand against Tanya in the shortest match of the day. Tanya won the match 21-7, 21-11. However, with this victory of Tanya, a controversy has started deepening.
forced to wear hijab
In fact, after winning the match, a strange incident happened during the medal ceremony with Tanya. She was forced to wear a hijab before going to the podium. Tanya had to obey Iranian rules to wear the medal. This rule was in force the last time Tasneem won the title.
The organizers had already made the rules
According to media reports, the organizers of the tournament had already told that the players reaching the podium would have to wear hijab. According to a report in The Times of India, the organizers had made it a rule that women players who go to the podium to collect medals must wear a headscarf or hijab. However, this condition was missing from the prospectus of the tournament. The same rules were written on the prospectus of this tournament which are written in international tennis tournaments around the world.
Male spectators were not allowed to watch the match
Interestingly, no male spectators were allowed during the women’s matches in this tournament. A board with the words ‘No men allowed’ was hung at the entrance. The referee and umpire in the women’s match were also women. According to reports, mixed doubles matches were held for the first time in the tournament. Women’s matches were held in the morning and men’s in the afternoon. The father who went with his daughters in this tournament also did not get to see the match. Men and women players were allowed to watch the match only during the mixed doubles.
