Chief warns play­ers

Cyprus Today - - SPORT -

A WIM­BLE­DON chief has called for greater “mu­tual re­spect” af­ter a video clip showed Fer­nando Ver­dasco ges­tur­ing at a ball boy to hurry up with a towel dur­ing last month’s Shen­zhen Open.

Mick Des­mond, com­mer­cial and me­dia di­rec­tor of the All Eng­land Club, added he was “not afraid” to fine play­ers.

“There’s an eti­quette. The ball boys and ball girls of Wim­ble­don are all vol­un­teers,” Des­mond told BBC Sport.

But he sug­gested an idea to in­tro­duce towel rails was un­likely to be adopted.
