Just been reading up recently on Safin's history of fines. He piled them up. Just wondering whether he ever got close to the notoriety of McEnroe in this area. Also noticed that Capdeville and Ancic got into it at the French Open in 2006 and were fined $3,000 each. But what about Safin and McEnroe?

3. David Nalbandian. 12,000 US dollars.
The Argentine was fined 8,000 dollars for alleging throwing water over a doctor after his second-round defeat to America’s John Isner at this Australian Open. Nalbandian, who had called the umpire “stupid” for his decision-making, has denied soaking the doctor, and has said he would appeal the punishment

3. Dmitry Tursunov, 12,000 US dollars.
Tursunov, registered his frustrations in other ways during the 2006 Wimbledon Championships. During a fourth-round defeat to Finland’s Jarkko Nieminen, Tursunov slammed a ball in the direction of the umpire’s chair (Fergus Murphy believed that the Russian was trying to hit him), and later called the official “an idiot” and compared him to Saddam Hussein

Nalbandian was also fined US$5,000 after the 2008 Davis Cup doubles match he lost partnering Agustin Calleri because he skipped the mandatory news conference.

In 2012 after the infamous Queen's incident he was fined US$12,560 – the maximum possible for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Yeah, but that fine against Nalbandian for accidentally hurting the lines judge was unfair. There was no mens rea or guilty mind. He didn't set out to injure him. It was just in the heat of the moment kicking the barrier. No intent. But outside of the criminal realm, I guess organizations can do whatever they want against persons operating under their jurisdiction.

Don't think anyone can surpass Mac in this respect, even with the inflation over the years
