Klein Fined

Posted by gauloises1 on June 19, 2009

Australian player Brydan Klein has been fined 10,000 euros and suspended from Tennis Australia’s player development program following an incident during an Eastbourne qualifying match.


Klein was accused of using a racial epithet against his South African opponent Raven Klaasen, as well as spitting at Klaasen and Klaasen’s coach. He has been given the maximum penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct.

And quite right too.

    Heh, this reminds me of the AO this year.

    It was near the end of the day, and I was standing outside the main scoreboard looking for a match to watch that night.

    Klein had played his R2 match and lost (not that anyone would have noticed, the position of wunderkind having been taken by Tomic)

    This fabulously ocka lady waddles buy squawking at her husband “…By the end, I was glad that Brydan boy lost. He was a F*wit!”

    I thought it hilarious, if not a bit harsh at the time, but apparently she was right.
