DETAILS: WPT´s verdict against Lijo stands — longest suspension in history


Pablo Lijo appealed the World Padel Tour's twelve-tournament suspension after the incident he caused in the Buenos Aires Masters. 
The Twitter account VeinteDiez now has information that the circuit has rejected the appeal. 

The twelve-tournament suspension verdict from the World Padel Tour means that the Spanish backhand player World Padel Tour is welcome back again in June for the Marbella Master. 

The question is how keen the player is to come back, as he has strongly distanced himself, criticized the World Padel Tour organization, and already said ”Goodbye WPT” on his social media. 

The background to the verdict is the gesture that Pablo Lijo made to the Argentinean crowd at the Buenos Aires Masters against home players Tino Libaak and Leo Augsburger. 

”Longest suspension in history”

The World Padel Tour came with the harshest possible verdict. 12 tournaments are the harshest punishment the tour has ever given a player. 

When Padel Alto was in contact with the player, he did not want to comment on it in detail, as he had appealed. The World Padel Tour had until the 28th of January to respond. 

According to the reliable Twitter account VeinteDiez, the WPT has already responded and rejected Lijo's request.
