It was alleged that the Forbes world richest female athlete damaged the practice court at Wimbledon, after throwing her racket before the start of the tournament. The incident occurred during a practice session before this year’s tournament at the All England Club.

Italy’s Fabio Fognini, on the other hand, has been fined $3,000 (£2,396) after he said that Wimbledon should be bombed.

The 32-year-old made the outburst in his native tongue during his third-round loss to Tennys Sandgren on Saturday.

According to CNN, Bernard Tomic of Australia was also fined his full $58,500 last week Wimbledon prize money for failing to meet the “required professional standard” during Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s 58-minute first-round defeat.
