6/28/2010 - Tennis Rafael Nadal

WIMBLEDON, England -- Rafael Nadal has been fined $2,000 by Wimbledon officials for receiving coaching during his third-round match.

Nadal was given a code violation by French umpire Cedric Mourier for allegedly receiving advice from his coach, uncle Toni Nadal, during his five-set win over Philipp Petzschener on Saturday.

Both Nadals said Toni had only been giving the player encouragement.

The fine was announced Monday.

Nadal said, "The rules are the rules."
