Serena Williams fined $10,000 for court damages


Serena Williams has been fined $10,000 for damaging one of the Wimbledon courts with her racquet.

The incident occurred during a practice session before this year’s tournament at the All England Club.

The seven-time Wimbledon champion is playing just her sixth tournament of 2019 and she is in the quarter-finals already.

The 37-year-old, seeded 11th has been suffering from a knee injury this year and she will go up against Alison Riske in the last eight of the tournament.
