The ATP recently announced that tennis players who have received a doping penalty, as is the case of the Chilean Nicolas Jarry, they will not have the figure of ‘Ranking protected’ and they will return to play the circuit with zero points in the world list.
Jarry, upon hearing the news, pointed out to the Seventh Game portal that “I thought the bad news was over, receiving it was very hard. But hey, you have to accept it no more ”.
However, Jaime Fillol’s grandson assured that “I know it will make me stronger. In the same way, this does not change my plans, nor my goals, and I will continue training just as hard. Now I have more desire to return ”.
The 24-year-old from Santiago will lose the number two category of Chilean tennis and will be left with no option to defend Chile in 2021 at the Tokyo Olympics.
With this update of the rule, the 2019 winner of the Bastad tournament in Sweden will lose all points and will leave the ATP world ranking in September.
