Mr Disney fines Davydenko $10,000

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tennis/6250911.stm


"
Russia's Nikolay Davydenko has been fined $10,000 after making disparaging remarks about the Sydney International.


He claimed on Wednesday that players had pulled out of the last major warm-up for the Australian Open because they did not care about the event."

And thats worth a $10,000 fine? No wonder the top atp players behave like robots becasue if they question Mr mickey mouse they get this.

thats a bit harsh.

a $10,000 fine for speaking for mind. terrible. that means players are going to be scared to speak out about the issues, cos if the atp don't like what they say they will jsut fine them

Re: Mr Disney fines Davydenko $10,000

He deserves it. There's a diference between speaking your mind and being an asshole: By insulting the tournament, he spited on the face of linesmen, volunteers, etc. He dissed the effort of tons of people. Etienne is an asshole too, but take it to him, not to the tourny.
Really dissapointed with Kolya. Play less, bang your wife more

If he dislikes the rich ATP execs, great. But the fans, the ball boys who receive his towel .. no way man. Classless comments. F*ck u, Kolya.

Sure, but it's always that freedom of speech ends where the interests or rights of others begin. And Davydenko as a tennis pro is part of an organization.

Anyway, he will survive the fine easily , can laugh it off and play again.

Freedom of speech?

that's just a buzz word politicians use to win elections. But $10,000 fine is a complete joke.

Re: Mr Disney fines Davydenko $10,000

Freedom of Speech, at least in the US, does not apply to private institutions, so unless the law is vastly different somewhere else, that discussion is completely irrelevant here.

Davydenko's comments were out of line, no doubt, but what I fear is that the fine will have a chilling effect on things that need to be spoken out against (like round robin - if a player thinks the ATP is gonna fine him for speaking out against round robin, this is a bad bad thing.).

Re: Mr Disney fines Davydenko $10,000

He could have spoke his mind without putting Sydney down. All he needed to do was emphasize how important the Australian Open is, and let everybody know that he needs to be in top physical condition for the Open.

Agreed. MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA players and coaches get fined left and right for the criticism they have towards there organization. It happens on a daily basis. ATP is along the same lines as those leagues. Do I agree with the fine no but I think they were in the right here.
