Rublev was removed from the tournament

World No. 5 Andrey Rublev failed to reach the final of a major tennis tournament in Dubai, with a prize pool of $3.2 million. The Russian threw a real tantrum in his match against Alexander Bublik from Kazakhstan, cursing one of the judges, and was disqualified.

The scandalous moment occurred in the 11th game of the decisive third set. During the play, it seemed to Rublev that the ball flew into the out after the opponent's hit, which was not signaled by the line umpire. After Bublik scored a point, the Russian literally flew off the handle.

After that, one of the tournament managers came down to the court and said that Rublev had sworn obscenely in Russian and called the referee a "f***ing idiot." The Russian actively denied his guilt, claiming that he had only spoken in English.
