Serena Williams Fined $10,000 For Damaging Wimbledon Court
According to reports, Serena Williams was fined $10,000 on Monday for damaging a court during practice before the event started. While the details are scarced about exactly what happened, the 37-year-old tennis champ was fined by the All England Club.
Serena wasn’t the only athlete fined. Reportedly, Fabio Forgnini was fined $3,000 fine for saying he wished a bomb would hit Wimbledon after his loss. Nick Kyrgios was also hit with two fines, totaling $8,000, for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Serena, who is seeking her eighth women’s singles title at Wimbledon, will face off against Alison Riske this week in the quarterfinal.
She has yet to release a statement about the fine.
