From 11 April 2022, the player who had a highest ATP ranking of 281 and is currently ranked 804, is prohibited from playing in or attending any tennis event authorised or sanctioned by any international tennis governing body or national association until the full disciplinary process is completed.
The provisional suspension was issued under section F.3 of the 2022 Tennis Anti-Corruption Program:
