Question Was Rafa Fined?

I just got this email tonight. Not sure how true this is, but I can't find out anywhere else and I thought i'd come here to ask. The place of all knowledge Here it is anyway:

Rafa is going have to pay 5.000 euros because of his behavior at court in Wimbledon. It seems that players and the organization of the tourney dont like the way he gets when he's celebrating a point or so.

Do you think its true? I mean, I know his antics on court are not for everyone. Much like when Hewitt does it, not everyone likes it when he does it either. But to fine Rafa? It seems a bit harsh!

Oh well...

Re: Was Rafa Fined?

I guess people are relating his celebrations to Hewitt's... but come on, Rafa has NEVER messed with an opponent.

Unlike Hewitt...

Re: Was Rafa Fined?

Did you also get the email that says if you forward it to all of your friends Bill Gates will send you a check?

Seriously, if a Top 5 player was going to get a fine for something like that, it would be all over the place, especially here because just about all of us would be insulting the very idea of it.

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.

Re: Was Rafa Fined?

Nah, didn't get that email *LOL* But yes Fee, I totally agree with you...especially since I didn't find an article to go with it anywhere. But I was basically just asking to see if anyone else heard about it. That's all

Re: Was Rafa Fined?

Until there's something on the Wimbledon site or at least, some links to articles on this, I seriously doubt it. That's like 6 times the amount of Safin's fine for breaking the Perrier sign at RG. I haven't heard anyone really make a serious complaint on Nadal's celebrations (which don't seem to warrant that heavy amount of a fine in the first place, imo).

No. Wimbledon wouldn't fine players in euros - they'd rather die.

no, it's 5,000. They use a period instead of a comma.
