Tomic stripped of £45,000 Wimbledon prize money for tanking/托米克因輸得難看,被撤銷4萬5000英鎊溫布頓獎金

Australia’s Bernard Tomic was stripped of his entire £45,000 Wimbledon prize money on Thursday for tanking in his first round match which was over in just 58 minutes.

澳洲的博納德.托米克因在首輪賽中表現差勁,僅58分鐘就落敗,週四被撤銷他所有的4萬5000英鎊溫布頓獎金。

"It is the opinion of the referee that the performance of Bernard Tomic in his first round match against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga did not meet the required professional standards," the All England Club said in a statement.

全英草地網球俱樂部在聲明中說,「裁判認為,托米克在第一輪對上松加的比賽表現,未達所需具備的職業水準」。

"Therefore he has been fined the maximum amount of £45,000 which will be deducted from prize money."

「因此他被罰最高額的4萬5000英鎊,這筆罰款將從獎金中扣除」。

When Tomic was asked if he was happy with the effort he was making on court at Wimbledon, he snapped:"Next question" and refused to answer other questions.

當托米克被問到滿不滿意自己在溫網場上的表現,他立刻發飆說「下一個問題」,然後拒絕回答其他提問。

Tomic has run foul of the Wimbledon authorities in the past. Two years ago, he was fined after admitting he had faked an injury and complained of being bored in defeat to Germany’s Mischa Zverev.

托米克之前曾與溫網主辦單位發生過不愉快。兩年前他承認傷勢造假以及敗給德國的米夏.茨維列夫後抱怨該場比賽「無聊」,因此被罰款。

Left-handed boxers win more fights 左撇子拳擊手贏更多比賽

Left-handed people are better fighters than their right-handed counterparts because they catch them off guard, new research has found.

新研究發現,相較右撇子對手,左撇子人士是更好的戰士,因為他們會讓對方措手不及。

Researchers studied data on the careers of 10,000 professional boxers and mixed martial arts fighters. They found that when a left-handed fighter fought a right-handed competitor, around 54 per cent of the time the left-handed fighter got a higher rating.

研究人員對一萬名職業拳擊手及綜合格鬥技選手的職涯資料進行調查。他們發現,當左撇子格鬥家對決右撇子競爭者時,約54%的時間裡,左撇子格鬥家都獲得更高評級。

According to the "fighting hypothesis," right-handed people are more used to fighting fellow right-handers due to the relative rarity of left-handed people. As a result, left-handed people have a competitive advantage in combat because their opponents are likely to be disoriented by their fighting stance.

根據「搏鬥假說」,右撇子更習慣與同樣使用右手的人對戰,因為左撇子相對罕見。結果是,左撇子在戰鬥時具有競爭優勢,因為他們的對手可能被其戰鬥站位所迷惑。
