A fine of $ 40,000 for "non-combativity"


Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro, the 33rd player in the world, was fined $ 40,000 for her "non-combativity" in her first-round match at the US Open, organizers said on Friday.

"After studying the findings of the medical team and the Grand Slam supervisors, it was concluded that Carla Suarez Navarro had not played at the required professional level," explained the tournament organizers.

The player had retired at the end of the first run (lost 6-2) against the Hungarian Timea Babos, 112th World, pretending a pain in the lower back.

The purse for a player in the event of a defeat in the first round is $ 58,000 and amounts to $ 100,000 in the event of a defeat in the second round.
