A petulant but unrepentant Jeff Tarango was hit with the highest fine in Wimbledon tournament history -- $15,500 -- for his outburst on Saturday. The breakdown: $10,000 forverbally abusing an umpire, $5,000 for defaulting the tennis match, and $500 for telling spectators to "shut up." The fine broke the previous record of $10,000 levied against John McEnroe for verbally abusing a line judge. Despite earning $29,984 in his best ever performance in a Grand Slam event, fines and taxes left Tarango with only $2,961 for the tournament. The good news: Tarango's wife was not penalized for twice slapping the umpire her husband called the "most corrupt in the game."
