Rublev gets £120k in prize money after screaming in line judge’s face

Andy Roddick, 2003 US Open champion, will be among those to welcome the ATP’s ruling after calling out the stipulation that prize money and ranking points from previous wins at the competition are also taken away.

“He has to now give up his prize money for the week, his ATP ranking points for the week, drops him out of the top five in the world,” Roddick said on his podcast Served. “I don’t know what his meltdown on Friday has to do with his first, second, and third-round victories.

“He will have some of the blame because he went too far, but taking the money for the week, taking away the points because of a judgment call of some guy in a chair, that doesn’t make sense to me.”
