Serena Williams, Fabio Fognini and Nick Kyrgios all slapped with fines by Wimbledon chiefs
Serena Williams has been slapped with a $10,000 (£7,988) fine by the All England Club for damaging a court at Wimbledon.
The 23-time Grand Slam winner, who will take on fellow American Alison Riske in the quarter-final, was hit with the penalty after she damaged one of the courts with her racket prior to the start of the tournament.
Although officials did not reveal on which court the incident took place, it is understood it was not one of the practice courts at Aorangi Park.
Italian Fabio Fognini, meanwhile, has been hit with a $3,000 (£2,396) fine after he said Wimbledon should be bombed during his third-round exit against Tennys Sandgren.
“Damn English. I wish a bomb would explode on this club. A bomb should explode here,” he was heard saying.
He offered a half-hearted apology during his post-match press conference, saying: “Something happened on court. If somebody feels offended, I say sorry. No problem.”
Nick Kyrgio will have to cough up $3,000 and $5,000 (£3,996) fines respectively for two separate unsportsmanlike incidents.
Both were for dissent towards the umpire, the first fine was for an incident during his first-round win over fellow Australian Jordan Thompson and the second one for an incident during the second-round clash against Rafael Nadal.
