Sport's Spitting Scandals

9 of 17


Romanian tennis player Victor Hanescu was accused of spitting at fans during Wimbledon. During his match against German player Daniel Brand, Hanescu was offended by spectator heckling and took the matter into his own hands by spitting on the crowd. He quit the match early due to a leg injury.

Tournament officials confirmed the incident and issued Hanescu a code violation for unsportsmanlike conduct with a fine upwards of $10,000.
