Relative of Rezai restrained indefinitely from future women events

The incident had seemingly occurred while the currently happening Australian Open at Melbourne.

According to the released statement, the WTA's top priority was the health and well-being of their players. It further said that a critical safety issue had arisen before the WTA's attention, which led to the consequence of a relative of Aravane Rezai to be barred from all future WTA events for an indefinite period of time pending their investigation.

For the sake of the privacy of the player, the WTA refused to elaborate on the details.

According to a French newspaper, however, Rezai's father got involved in an altercation with the boyfriend of his daughter prior to her opening match previous Monday.

Rezai, of Iranian descent, who holds the 17th rank in the world, was defeated in sets of three by Czech player Barbora Zahlavova Strycova who is of a lower rank.
