Monday 18 June 2012
David Nalbandian has been fined the maximum penalty of 10,000 euros (£8,000) for kicking an advertising hoarding into a line judge's leg at Queen's yesterday, the ATP have confirmed.
Nalbandian was disqualified from the final of the AEGON Championships at Queen's Club yesterday when he lashed out at the hoarding which subsequently struck Andrew McDougall.
The Argentinian's £36,500 prize money was taken off him and the ATP revealed today that after the match they issued him with the maximum fine of 10,000 euros for unsportsmanlike conduct.
An ATP spokeswoman said: "Nalbandian automatically forfeited his prize money and ranking points due to his conduct default.
"A maximum 10,000 euro (£8,000) fine also was issued onsite by the ATP Supervisor for unsportsmanlike conduct."
