Wimbledon to take firm line on treatment of ball boys and girls


LONDON (Reuters) - Wimbledon is prepared to take action against players who behave badly towards ball boys and girls and plans to discuss the matter with representatives of men's and women's tennis, commercial director Mick Desmond said on Wednesday.

The subject became a hot topic last week after Spaniard Fernando Verdasco was pilloried on social media for appearing to berate a ball boy for not bringing his towel quickly enough at the Shenzhen Open.
