One day after being fined and suspended by the Grand Slam committee for his extraordinary outburst at Wimbledon, the American, Jeff Tarango, received additional sanctions from the ATP Tour yesterday. It announced that Tarango had been fined a further $20,000 (pounds 12,500) and suspended for three weeks of tour events for remarks he made in his post-match interview after defaulting in his third-round Wimbledon match against the German, Alexander Mronz. Tarango had accused the French umpire, Bruno Rebeuh, of favouring certain players.

The Grand Slam committee had added $28,256 in fines to the record total of $15,500 he was fined by the All England Club.
