Video: Viktor Troicki fined for 'worst umpire in the world' on-court Wimbledon rant

Viktor Troicki has been fined US$10,000 for his remarkable outburst at Wimbledon.

A heavier punishment has gone to Britain's Heather Watson.

The British number two jammed her racket into the grass during her heartbreaking first-round loss to Germany's Annika Beck and has been ordered to pay US$12,000, tournament organisers said.

Defending women's champion Serena Williams was handed a US$10,000 fine for smashing her racket after losing the first set to Christina McHale on Friday and then throwing it behind her, where it landed on the lap of a cameraman.
