UK: Novak Djokovic Fined $8k For His Wimbledon Men’s Final Oustburst

Novak Djokovic has been fined £6,117 for smashing his racquet against the net post during the Wimbledon men’s singles final which he lost to Carlos Alcaraz.

In fifth set of his loss to Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz, the 36-year-old Serb’s serve was broken in the third game.

Umpire Fergus Murphy immediately issued Djokovic a warning for a code violation for the transgression.

The fine was deducted from his runner-up cheque of £1.175m.

World number one Alcaraz took full advantage of Djokovic’s frustrations to seal a 1-6 7-6 (8-6) 6-1 3-6 6-4 victory after four hours and 42 minutes.

The 20-year-old’s victory at the All England Club denied Djokovic a 24th grand slam title.
