Fabio Fognini fined for sexist outburst at US Open
    2017-October-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

ITALIAN Fabio Fognini was fined US$96,000 and hit with a suspended ban from two Grand Slams on Wednesday for having insulted an umpire at the U.S. Open.

Fognini was kicked out of the U.S. Open and fined US$24,000 at the time for launching a sexist tirade at Swedish female umpire Louise Engzell after a first round defeat to Italian compatriot Stefano Travaglia at the end of August.

The world No.28 has been warned that if he re-offends between now and the end of 2019, he will be banned from two Grand Slams, one of which will be the U.S. Open.

However, if he keeps out of trouble his fine will be halved.

“Mr. Fognini accepts and will not appeal this decision and he has expressed remorse for his admitted misconduct,” said the Grand Slam Board in a statement.

Shortly after being kicked out of the U.S. Open, Fognini, 30, appeared contrite and said he would accept whatever punishment the Grand Slam Board decided to impose.

“Should (the Grand Slam Board) decide to ban me from the next Australian Open, I will accept the decision, because actions have consequences, and I need to pay for what I did,” Fognini told Italian Sky Sports TV a month ago.

“I am aware of the severity of my mistake, I take full responsibility for it.”
