Default Zhang Jike, winner of the table tennis World Cup, fined 45,000$ for celebration

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/111...lebration.html

Zhang Jike won the table tennis World Cup a couple of days ago, and celebrated by kicking and destroying the barriers. He was later fined 45,000 dollars, which was his entire prize money for the tournament win.

Discuss.

Not as good as Nalbandian.

Looks like a serious fight was about to break out over that shirt thrown into the crowd.

That's what I noticed and was kinda hoping the camera would have kept on rolling

But that is absurd. Probably the Chinese advertisement companies got pissed off and threatened the tournament or something.

Could have fined him half the amount. Not fair to fine him his prize money that he won for winning a WHOLE TOURNAMENT.

But I guarantee you that he won't do it again. Maybe the ATP should take some notes with Fognini

* Slams Do Not Exist!

Lenders: One thing people need to understand about this so-called weak era is that it was 'weak' for Federer on HC and grass and for Nadal on clay (Federer on clay too Nadal apart) because they were so much better than anyone else, for any outsider the era couldn't possibly be any harder, during 5+ years you had to either beat the best grass/HC player ever or the best clay player ever in every single Slam just to get 1 Slam title.

Exactly.

Tennis players win millions and get fined 2 or 3k.

Of course the fine was ridiculous high, specially if you think that was the total prize money of him.

But it is quite unusual (for me it's a first) to see chinese athletes celebrating these way. I always thought of chinese players and people in general as very emotionless (at least in their public demonstrations) even after winning.

Disregarding the fact that he is chinese, I don't know if I've ever seen a player behave like that when winning something, regardless of sport. I've seen lots of players thrash stuff when they're losing ofc, but when winning? Only similar thing that comes to mind is kicking away at the corner flag after scoring in football.

Quite fascinating
