Serena Williams has been fined $10,000 (£7,988) for damaging one of the Wimbledon courts with her racket.

It was alleged that the American tennis star damaged the practice court at Wimbledon, after throwing her racket before the start of the tournament. The incident occurred during a practice session before this year’s tournament at the All England Club.

Italy’s Fabio Fognini, on the other hand, has been fined $3,000 (£2,396) after he said that Wimbledon should be bombed.

The 32-year-old made the outburst in his native tongue during his third-round loss to Tennys Sandgren on Saturday.

Australia’s Bernard Tomic was also fined his full Wimbledon prize money of $58,500 last week for not meeting the “required professional standard” during his 58-minute first-round defeat by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
