Athletistic / Tennis. The 5th racket in the world, Russian tennis player Andrey Rublev, commented for the first time on his disqualification during the ATP-500 tournament in Dubai (UAE). The Russian was disqualified in the semi-final match against Alexander Bublik of Kazakhstan.

The meeting between the rivals was stopped in the third set. The Russian tennis player was rude to the linesman, after which Andrey was disqualified. Subsequently, the ATP partially upheld the Russian’s appeal: he received points for reaching the semi-finals and kept his prize money.

“I would like to thank the ATP panel for upholding my appeal. The original decision has been amended.

I hope that in the future the ATP will carefully study this rule and make changes.

Roddick: ‘Rublev only has himself to blame’

Although I’m disappointed that I couldn’t finish the Dubai tournament, I’m grateful for all the support I received. Thank you all for your support. I promise that I will learn from this and try to become a better person and a better player,” Rublev wrote on social media.
