Nalbandian hit with maximum ATP fine
The ATP has confirmed that David Nalbandian has been handed the maximum fine of 10,000 euros (£8,000) for his outburst at Queen's.
The 30-year-old Argentinian looked to be on course to win the AEGON Championships at Queen's Club on Sunday when he took the first set against Marin Cilic and had recovered from an early break in the second to sit at three games all.
However, after his Croatian opponent broke his serve again to lead 4-3, a frustrated Nalbandian kicked an advertising hoarding into line judge's Andrew McDougall's leg which left him bleeding from the shin.
Nalbandian had his £36,500 prize money taken off him and the ATP revealed on Monday that he was issued with the maximum fine of 10,000 euros for unsportsmanlike conduct.
An ATP spokeswoman said: "Nalbandian automatically forfeited his prize money and ranking points due to his conduct default.
"A maximum 10,000 euro (£8,000) fine also was issued onsite by the ATP supervisor for unsportsmanlike conduct."
Meanwhile, police have also confirmed that they are investigating a complaint of alleged assault against the 2002 Wimbledon finalist after the injury to McDougall.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "We are aware of an incident at the AEGON Championships on June 17.
"A complaint has been made and the Metropolitan Police Service is now investigating.
"The allegation is of assault."
