Was Serena penalized for racket abuse?
 
She smashed a racket and broke the head in half at the end of a game in the match against Sloane. Was she penalized by a point in the next game, or fined?

She got a code violation warning, and I'm guessing a fine.

You only get a warning for the first code violation. I'm not sure she got one though. She did pay the ultimate penalty however, by being beaten.

She did get a warning

The only fine I've seen make the news was Janowicz getting $2500 for his outburst the first week. Is there a place on the web to get a full run down of all the fines from tournaments?

She did receive a warning. But, since she didn't do anything else, it didn't lead to greater punishment.

No. And I pretty sure janowicz fine was for the spitting.

I think you're right, and hitting the umpire's chair was mentioned. His quote when he found out was sort of funny:

"For sure I will not believe this because I didn't say anything bad," he said. "I didn't do anything bad. I was just shouting. You get fined for shouting?"
