Has a player ever not turned up for a match?

Waiting for Venus to turn up (she's over 10 minutes late, while Amanmuradova is just sitting and waiting), I was thinking: Has a player actually ever just not turned up?

Im not the next anyone. Im the first Maria Sharapova...

Also, is there a time limit or fine for being late?

Surely there must be. On a sidenote, without being a crank straight away, Venus is already acting like a diva and it's just bad manners...
