Daniil Medvedev fined $5,500 for unsportsmanlike conduct, after a meltdown which included taking a swipe at the grass after his five-set defeat to David Goffin.

Medvedev left frustrated as he threw away a 4-1 lead in the deciding set to go down to the Belgian 4-6 6-2 3-6 6-3 7-5.

The furious Russian took aim at the freshly cut Wimbledon lawn with his racquet after refusing to shake the umpire’s hand at the end of a dramatic defeat.

Although the fine won’t do the 22-year-old too much harm considering he pocketed £111,000 in prize money.
