The Russian tennis player Andrei Rublev was disqualified from the semifinals of the ATP tournament in Dubai.

The disqualification of the Russian came in the finish of the third set against Alexander Bublik when the score was 1:1 in sets and 6:5 for Rublyov.

Rublev lost his temper and uttered numerous insults in Russian after the tennis player had objections to a line judge's decision. The tennis player got in the referee's face and started yelling at him, while the linesman who obviously knew Russian signaled to his colleague that he was insulting him.
