Argentine fined; police involved

David Nalbandian was fined the maximum $12,560 and placed under police investigation for assault after kicking an advertising board and injuring a line judge during the Queen’s Club final.

The ATP said the Argen­tine player also was stripped of his $57,350 in prize money.
London police said they were investigating a complaint of assault filed against Nalbandian, who was defaulted from Sunday’s match against Marin Cilic in the grass-court Wimbledon warmup event.

Nalbandian won the first set 7-6 (3) but lost his temper after losing serve to fall behind 3-4 in the second. After missing a running forehand on game point, he kicked the board under the chair of line judge Andrew McDougall. A piece of the board cut the judge on the left shin, leaving him bloodied from an inch-long gash.

Tournament director Chris Kermode said Mc­Dougall received first aid but needed no further treatment after seeing a doctor.

• Wimbledon officials set out to ensure that all matches would be broadcast live and by the same company in the United States under their new television contract. They agreed to a 12-year deal with ESPN last summer, ending a 43-year run on NBC.

The move to cable means the finals will air in fewer homes, but it does away with tape-delayed matches and makes the tournament easier to follow in the middle rounds.

ESPN had owned the rights to extensively televise the early rounds since 2003, with NBC picking up coverage as the tournament progressed. NBC was often criticized for not showing all the action live in every time zone.

Brit gets 4-year ban for doping

British heavyweight boxer Larry Olubamiwo was suspended for four years after admitting using more than a dozen doping substances.

UK Anti-Doping says Olu­bamiwo tested positive for the blood-boosting drug EPO on Jan. 30 after a bout with countryman Sam Sexton.

The agency says Olu­ba­miwo later admitted to using 13 banned substances, including human growth hormone and anabolic steroids, over a six-year period.

The 33-year-old fighter is banned from participation in all sports until Feb. 28, 2016. All of his boxing results dating to Jan. 1, 2006, have been annulled.

Olubamiwo had a record of 10-3.

• USA Boxing says lightweight Queen Underwood has been awarded a berth in the first Olympic women’s boxing tournament.

Underwood is a five-time national champion who won the first U.S. Olympic boxing team trials in February. But she dropped a one-point decision in the preliminary round of the world championships in China last
month, falling just short of Olym­pic qualification and jeopardizing her berth in Lon­don’s 12-fighter lightweight field.

Underwood learned Mon­day that she had been given an Olympic spot.
