<p>Following an appeal to the ATP, Andrey Rublev will keep the ranking points and prize money he won at the Dubai Tennis Championships even though he was forfeited from the competition for unsportsmanlike behavior.</p>

<p>After a Russian-speaking official seemed to accuse Rublev of using profanity when he raged at the line judge during his Friday semifinal match against Alexander Bublik of Kazakhstan, the chair umpire defaulted.</p>
<p>Arguments on when to introduce fresh balls, which centered around Bublik and chair umpire Miriam Bley, dominated much of the decisive set.</p>
<p>But at 6-7 (4/7), 7-6 (7/5), and 6-5, Rublev lost his temper, swearing at a line umpire and being charged by another that the second seed had cursed at his colleague in Russian.</p>
<p>The line umpire adhered to Rublev’s account despite his insistence that he was speaking in English and that he did not use any bad language, and the 26-year-old was forfeited from the game.</p>
<p>Bublik made an attempt to persuade Bley and ATP supervisor Roland Herfel to go on, but the decision was made, ending the match.</p>
<p>“The ATP stated in a statement on Monday that the appeals committee determined that, in addition to losing the match, the typical penalties connected with a default—namely, losing rankings points and prize money for the duration of the tournament—would be unfair in this particular instance.</p>
<p>Rublev’s $36,400 code violation sanction is still in effect after the appeal, which included player and official testimony as well as an analysis of audio and video content.</p>
<p>Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, a Spanish player and Dubai quarterfinalist, expressed compassion for Rublev and called the punishment “shameful.”</p>
<p>The world number 24 wrote in X, “It is very unfair that they disqualify Rublev without first ensuring that what the line judge understood is correct.”</p>
<p>“That regulation has to be examined and adjusted. Disgusting. In tennis, VAR is necessary.</p>
