    I know this is old news, but I never really read anything about it, and would appreciate if someone explained what exactly happened. I just read that he was fined for not trying hard enough? I don't get it. What happened? How can they fine you for that?

    as i recall, he wasn't fined for not trying hard, but for practically bragging about his lack of effort afterward

    If I remember well it reached the point where it became ridiculous and Safin was letting the guy hit second serves without returning them... One of the most spectacular tanks ever. I think they were right to fine him.
