Serena Williams Fined $10,000 for Damaging Wimbledon Court

Serena Williams

Seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams has been handed a $10,000 fine for damaging one of the practice courts with her racquet.

The incident occurred on an outside court during a training session the day before this year’s grass grand slam began, according to organizers.

Williams has previously been fined $10,000 at the All England Club for repeatedly smashing her racket on the court during a second-round victory over Christina McHale in 2016.

The All England Club, the organization which hosts Wimbledon, has meted out a $10,000 fine for Serena which is chump change for her considering she’s already made $367,000 for making the quarterfinals.  So far, Serena hasn’t commented on the fine.
