Nick Kyrgios, Fabio Fognini get fined by Wimbledon

Nick Kyrgios received an £8,000 fine in Wimbledon for his unsportsmanlike conduct during his matches in Wimbledon. The Australian player defeated Jordan Thompson in the first round and then lost to Rafael Nadal in the second.

Fabio Fognini instead got a £3,000 fine. On Kyrgios, the former Spanish player Jordi Arrese said: "The society is quicker and with less values. We will see more people like Kyrgios in the future." Bernard Tomic appealed his £45,000 fine.

The Australian said: “I played pretty bad. From the start, just didn’t feel good out there. He was serving really well. I got no idea where he was serving, so it makes it even tougher. I guess a lot on the return. I was guessing; I just guessed wrong.

Obviously (he) broke me early in the first set, the second set as well, and after that, it was pretty much finished; those two sets. Pretty much played pretty bad, felt bad. What can I do?” On David Goffin, Novak Djokovic added: "I think he started well, he was dictating the play from the baseline.

He was deservedly lead at 4-3 and serving. New balls came in play but I played a good game and managed to break him back. It was a crucial service game at 5-4. It could have gone a different way, who knows what would have happened if I lost the first set."
