Donaldson fined EUR5,000 for umpire outburst

Jared Donaldson has been fined EUR5,000 following his angry exchange with umpire Arnaud Gabas at the Monte Carlo Masters on Monday.

During the second set of his first-round 6-3 6-3 loss to Albert Ramos-Vinolas, Donaldson squared up to Gabas when he insisted a serve from his opponent had landed out.

The official adjudged Ramos-Vinolas' ace to have clipped the line, but a furious Donaldson pointed at Gabas and shouted "show me the mark" before claiming "you're making up a mark because you don't like me."

Donaldson called for a supervisor and when Gabas said he had been aggressive, the world number 51 replied sarcastically: "Oh I'm sorry, I hurt your feelings. I apologise."

The 21-year-old was given a code violation at the time and on Tuesday the ATP confirmed he had been fined.
