Anabel, Alizé & Edina are the first players to be fined at this year's Open

http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/sto...5-3162,00.html

Players cross the fine line

AUSTRALIAN Open officials have wasted no time in cracking down on unacceptable player behaviour.

With the tournament's first round still incomplete, 11 players have been fined after a volatile start to the event.

And it appears officials have grown tired of umpires being subjected to outside influences by issuing $2500 penalties to Chile's Paul Capdeville and Spain's Anabel Medina Garrigues for receiving illegal coaching.

Argentine Juan Monaco and Italian Daniele Bracciali were both given $2500 notices under the same rule, reduced to $1275 on appeal.

Frenchman Marc Gicquel was docked $2500 for unsportsmanlike behaviour in his marathon five-set win over Australian Alun Jones, while former finalist Rainer Schuettler was hit with a $1275 fine for the same offence.

Russia's 2005 champion Marat Safin lost $630 for racquet abuse with Romanian Edina Gallovits docked the same for ball abuse.

Jean-Rene Lisnard (audible obscenity), Mathieu Montcourt (unsportsmanlike) and Alize Cornet (ball abuse) were handed $320 fines.

Why isn't Roddick fined?? Is he getting Celebrity treatment?? In his match against Tsonga, He directed verbal abuse towards the umpire a lot of times. Plus he also directed abuse towards Tsonga during the change over in the first set Tie break.

I agree that Roddick was out of line in some cases in his match and deserves a fine...

Also Sharapova dropping the f-bomb... I assume she will be fined also, though it entertained me

I"m not assuming anything, except that it would be fun to start a pool for how long it'll be before they abandon the "crackdown" in the face of a top name.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

I thought the exact same thing.

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

They'll never fine Roddick. He's a marquee player. He literally yelled out "fucking prick" to Tsonga at the net (it was live, heard by everyone, including the horrified commentators).

He then verbally abused the ref saying "i'll stop talking when you say something intelligent".

He's tennis elite, and he's immune to all fines.

Sharapova should be on that list. And Roddick too, as some people have mentioned.

Re: Anabel, Alizé & Edina are the first players to be fined at this year's Open

Can a fine be imposed retroactively when there was no infraction at the time by the umpire?


Or does it require that at the time of the incident an infraction was called by the umpire?

Edina Gallovits is one of the biggest clowns/jackasses i've ever seen (on the womens side). She has no qualms whatsoever about making a complete fool of herself on the court.
