Serena Williams has been fined 10,000 U.S. dollars by the All England Club for damaging a court during practice before the Wimbledon tournament started on Monday.

Fabio Fognini was fined 3,000 U.S. dollars for saying during his third-round loss that he wished a bomb would hit Wimbledon.

Nick Kyrgios was imposed two fines, one for 3,000 U.S. dollars from the first round and another for 5,000 U.S. dollars from the second round, both for unsportsmanlike conduct.

The Australian lost to Rafael Nadal in four sets in the second round.
