The citizenship of the detainees is not reported, they are being interrogated.
Rublev lost in this match with a score of 2:6, 2:6, 4:6, and this ended his performance in the tournament.
It is noted that the meeting lasted 2 hours and 5 minutes.

The organizers of the tournament recalled that fans from Russia and Belarus were forbidden to wave flags so as not to interfere with the fans.
