Aus­tralian Bernard Tomic plans to ap­peal against his fine for not play­ing to “re­quired pro­fes­sional stan­dards” dur­ing his 58-minute, first-round thrash­ing by Jo-wil­fried Tsonga at Wim­ble­don, as he had been un­well at the time. Tomic was fined £45,000 af­ter losing 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 in the short­est Wim­ble­don men’s match for 15 years. “Fly­ing from Turkey and losing in the quar­ter-fi­nals there, play­ing few matches in 40C heat and I was run down and be­came a bit un­well over the week­end,” Tomic said. “From the start I knew I had very lit­tle chance be­cause I was feel­ing down but I thought I would go on court to try [be­cause] it’s Wim­ble­don. Sorry, guys, for feel­ing un­well.”
