NEW YORK (AP) - John McEnroe's World TeamTennis club has been
fined for what the league called "unprofessional conduct" by him and other players at a match last week.
During the men's doubles match between McEnroe's New York Sportimes and the Washington Kastles on July 16, a shot by Washington's Leander Paes hit New York's Robert Kendrick. McEnroe
and Sportimes coach Chuck Adams went over to Paes' side of the court and yelled at him.
Four points later, Kendrick hit Paes with a serve, prompting more screaming and confrontations.
The league suspended and fined Adams the next day, then reviewed
video and the umpire's report before issuing fines of both teams Thursday.
Kendrick and Kastles player Olga Puchkova received individual fines.
