Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula have now confirmed that they have received some sort of apology for the Madrid Open Women's Doubles fiasco.
Gauff though herself said that she only received one after expressing her frustration afterwards to the tournament organisers.
"I don't know what was going to be said in the speech. At least my speech, I wasn't going to say anything. I didn't know about the whole situation before because I'm not on Twitter," said Gauff.
"You can kind of see us talking on the podium. That's when I found out. I think for the most part, yeah, I don't think it was a great decision. I expressed that afterwards. They apologized."
While Pegula joked that it made everything better but said she received a letter of apology.
"No, but they sent me an apology letter. The letter made everything okay (smiling)."

Jessica Pegula on the ceremony: "There's been a lot of drama in Madrid, too much tension. Everything got worse as the week progressed and the organization considered to decide that. I wish they had managed it in a more mature and professional way. These things can't happen again"
