Fines in this year's Wimbledon

It seems like the weather is causing players to become fiesty.

Frenchman fined $11,800

FRENCHMAN Julien Benneteau has been fined $11,800 after an astonishing Wimbledon blow-up after losing a first-round doubles match.

Benneteau exploded after losing a first-round doubles match with compatriot Nicolas Mahut to Brazilians Marcelo Melo and Andre Sa.
Benneteau abused officials after Melo and Sa were awarded a 6-7 (4-7) 6-3 7-6 (8-6) 2-6 6-3 victory on a disputed ace. The enraged right-hander complained to the linesman and, failing to get a positive reaction, turned nasty.


Tournament supervisors appointed by the International Tennis Federation would not reveal what Benneteau said. However his language so upset Melo and Sa, the pair ended up pushing and shoving the Frenchman after the match.


Wimbledon's dire weather has affected the mindset of many players, including Australians Wayne Arthurs and Jordan Kerr. Arthurs was fined $590 for an audible obscenity after drawing the wrath of officials in qualifying.
Kerr received a $1770 penalty for the same offence.


Belgian Kristof Vliegen was fined a total of $9440 after being reported on two counts -- an audible obscenity and unsportsmanlike behaviour.
Of the 13 players fined in the first eight days of the championships, and during qualifying, only five are women.


Spain's Laura Pous Tio, Romania's Madalina Gojnea, Russia's Ekaterina Makarova, Czech Barbora Strycova and France's Alize Cornet all drew $590 penalties for relatively minor infringements.


Frenchman Olivier Patience and Italian Federico Luzzi were given $1180 fines for unsportsmanlike behaviour.

And she looks so cute when she is angry. "Oh no no no no no no. The ball was on zee line!!!!"

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

If being idiotic were a reason to fine someone, you'd be begging on the streets, living under a bridge.

Re: Fines in this year's Wimbledon

The organising committee should be fined.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
