Wimbledon fines revealed as Novak Djokovic meltdown breaks record… but 16-year-old pays out just as much

NOVAK DJOKOVIC received the biggest fine at Wimbledon this year following his outburst in the final.

The Serbian, who was beaten in five sets by Carlos Alcaraz in his first loss on Centre Court for 10 years, was punished for “racket abuse” when he was crucially broken in the deciding set.

He was hit with a £6,100 fine for the infraction, though bagged a cool £1.2million for finishing as runner-up.

That was the largest individual fine given out at this year’s tournament – making it a record for 2023.

It is however equalled by Mirra Andreeva, who received two fines during the tournament also totalling £6,100.

The 16-year-old Russian struggled to contain her temper throughout the tournament and was seen furiously punching herself during the early rounds.

She crashed out in the round of 16 when she gifted a match point to Maddison Keys.

Keys was awarded the point after Andreeva was judged to have thrown her racket to the ground after slipping by the umpire.

It was the second time she had experienced a racket related incident – having received a warning for throwing her racket across the grass earlier in the match.

Following her loss to Keys, Andreeva refused to shake hands with the umpire.


She received two fines worth £3,050 each for her conduct in the round of 16.

Brit Dan Evans received the largest fine in week one and was forced to pay out £3,100 for an “audible obscenity” in his round-one defeat to Quentin Halys.

Alex De Minaur and Alexander Zverev were also hit with £2,720 and £2,330 fines respectively for audible obscenities – aka swearing loudly.

Zizou Bergs picked up a smaller punishment for doing the same in qualifying.

Arthur Fils, meanwhile, got a fine for “abuse of rackets and equipment”.
