Brydan Klein suspended, fined for racial abuse

Australian Brydan Klein has been suspended from ATP World Tour and Challenger events for six months and fined a second time for making a racial slur during a qualifying match against South Africa’s Raven Klaasen on June 13 in Eastbourne, England.

The 19-year-old Klein has been fined an additional $10,000 on top of the $14,000 fine he received on site.

Klein who has apologised and expressed his embarassment and regret is considering whether to appeal, or to accept a reduced penalty by completing a racial sensitivity training course.
