Tsitsipas fined for breaking Miami bubble

The Greek and his father skipped isolation protocols. They were not disqualified, but they will have to pay 7,500 euros as reported by the ATP.


Stefanos Tsitsipas and his father, Apostolos, skipped the bubble protocol during the Miami Masters 1,000, according to Open Court. This media reports that both left the hotel where they were staying at some point (both the Epic and the Marriot Marquis have officiated these days as 'home' of the participants in the appointment) with a purpose other than that authorized, which is go to the training fields or to play games.

The regulations applied throughout the pandemic implied that a violation like this of the isolation measures would mean an immediate expulsion from any tournament, but the truth is that there has been more laxity with the Greek duo, which, according to the ATP, will have to pay a fine of 7,500 euros but did not suffer disqualification at the time of the events.

Tsitsipas fell in the quarterfinals against the Polish hubert Hurkacz, ultimately a finalist (he will play for the title against Sinner this Sunday), and did not want to share a vehicle with him in the transfer to the track before the game, a gesture that is now explained better. This week he will not be in Andalusia or Cagliari. His next appearance is expected at the Monte Carlo Masters 1,000, which starts next day 10.
