Rublev received his prize and rating points back after appealing his disqualification

Russian tennis player Andrei Rublev, after an appeal, had his prize and rating points returned for the ATP-500 series tournament in Dubai. Inews reports this.

“The Appeal Committee concluded that, in addition to forfeiture from the match, the usual penalties associated with non-compliance, namely the loss of ranking points and prize money for the entire tournament, would be disproportionate in this case,” the representative of the Association was quoted as saying professional tennis players (ATP).

Thus, Rublev will receive more than 157 thousand dollars in prize money for the tournament. The Russian was also awarded 200 ranking points, thanks to which he managed to maintain fifth place in the updated ATP ranking.

On March 1, during the semi-final match with the representative of Kazakhstan Alexander Bublik, Rublev swore at the line referee for a decision made not in his favor. After this, the Russian was disqualified and deprived of prize money and points.
