LONDON (AP) — Andrey Rublev will get to keep the ranking points and prize money — minus a fine of $36,400 — from the Dubai Championships, the ATP ruled Monday, after he appealed the punishment of his default from the semifinals for yelling in the face of a line judge last week.

The No. 5-ranked Rublev, a 26-year-old from Russia, forfeited the match after his reaction to a point being awarded to his opponent, Alexander Bublik, at 6-5 in the third set on Friday. When a tennis player is defaulted from a match because of on-court conduct, he relinquishes all money and rankings points earned in that event.

But the ATP ruled that the "customary penalties associated with a default ... would be disproportionate in this case."

"The appeal process took into consideration testimonies from the player, officials, as well as a review of all available video and audio materials," the tour said.

It noted that Rublev would still be docked $36,400 for the code violation he was issued by the chair umpire for unsportsmanlike conduct.
