The size of the fine Serena Williams incurred for hurting Wimbledon’s grass – $10,000 – raised some eyebrows.
But Wimbledon takes its grass seriously – as it should. You can’t patch it overnight.
A Daily Mail photographer caught her in the act (the Tennis.Life pic above was taken a few minutes before). There was video.
Serena knows. She even wrote an “apology note” – to no avail.
Heather Watson and Fabio Fognini are among those similarly dinged – but not before the tournament.
