What is likely ATP/ITF action against Nalbandian? Police investigating assault claim

Think this deserves its own thread separate to the match thread. Seems to be disagreement between journalists about whether ATP/ITF will take action any further than the disqualification - will it just be a fine or will he get a ban too?

I think the remarks about the ATP on court might also have gotten him in trouble. Would be surprised if this was just a fine. Odd for ATP supervisor to say categorically on BBC that it would go no further than the disqualification.

Feel bad for Nalby as he didn't mean to injure the linesman but he kicked that board and has to live with the consequences sadly. Hope nothing in jeapordy for Wimby or Olympics.

The ATP supervisor guarantee that there will be no further bans for Nalbandian outside of this tournament, hopefully they will stick to their word.

ITF will say they do not know anything.

Suspension for a month or so could be a possibility. The fact that Nalbandian criticized the ATP with such bad timing isn't going to do much justice to his situation either.

Don't think he will be suspended for the Olympics. He might get a fine from the ATP, then again being right about the ATP will result in a fine.

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".

Re: What is likely ATP/ITF action against Nalbandian?

Nothing a public visit to a hospital or feeding the poor while camera is rolling won't fix. But hopefully he will get to play at Wimbledon. I like Nalbandian. He can play unlike Cilic

Re: What is likely ATP/ITF action against Nalbandian?

The rulebook said he'll be fined (rule 8.04), which would be his runner up prize; which is about 56,000 USD.

How much did Nole get fined for abusing the sponsor label at FO?

Nalbandian continuing to dig that hole - via @ubitennis:

NNalbandian claims ATP force players to sign a document at start of year in which they promise to agree/not 2 criticise ATP- no sign, no play
Don't think Rafa and Novak have been abiding by that...

Good for him if he does get suspended from the tour though. I guess that means he can catch up on his off-season Big Macs a little earlier this year.

Re: What is likely ATP/ITF action against Nalbandian?

ATP is a mafia. What did you expect? But Nalby needs to get a life. In the U.S., if you criticize NBA, NFL, or whatever, you get hefty fines and suspensions

Lifetime ban from Burger King.

10 year ban from Mcdonalds (some leniency must be observed).

I would need to hear it again to be sure, but I thought he said there would be no further outcome FROM THIS TOURNAMENT. That would be all he could know for sure, it's up to the ATP to look at things and consider if there should be further action.
