   The ATP ruled that Sam Querrey, a 33-year-old San Francisco native, committed a major offense by violating the COVID-19 protocol at the St. Petersburg Open in October and fined him $20,000, the men's tour announced today.
   However, the fine was suspended because of Querrey's "many years of otherwise good standing with the ATP and other mitigating factors," according to a news release.
   The fine will be lifted if Querrey commits "no further breaches of health and safety protocols related to COVID-19" for six months.
   Querrey, who fled Russia with his wife and 8-month-old son after all three tested positive for the coronavirus, has five days to appeal the decision.
   The Las Vegas resident is ranked No. 53 after reaching a career-high No. 11 in February 2018. He is 0-4 since the professional tours resumed in August after the pandemic halted play for almost five months.
