Fognini suspended two grand slam ban for U.S. Open outburst

Fabio Fognini was provisionally suspended for two grand slam tournaments and fined $96,000 for his outburst at this year's U.S. Open, the Grand Slam Board said.

Fognini directed vulgar language toward Swedish chair umpire Louise Engzell during his first-round loss to compatriot Stefano Travaglia and was subsequently disqualified from the tournament in which he was also playing men's doubles.

A statement from the Grand Slam Board, an independent body responsible for the establishment and enforcement of the grand slam rules, said it had found Fognini guilty of "Aggravated Behavior and Conduct Contrary to the Integrity of the Game".

Fognini apologizes for insulting chair umpire at US Open

Fabio Fognini has apologized for insulting a chair umpire at the U.S. Open and said he is prepared to discuss his mistake with schoolchildren as a lesson.

Fognini was kicked out of the New York tournament on Saturday and could be banned from all Grand Slam events.

"I apologize to everyone, not only the chair umpire, to whom I already apologized in New York, but to everyone who felt offended - women above all," Fognini told Italy's Sky TV in a report that was broadcast Tuesday.

Rafa Nadal criticises US Open organisers for three-day wait before throwing out Fabio Fognini

Rafa Nadal criticises US Open organisers for three-day wait before throwing out Fabio Fognini

Rafa Nadal has criticised US Open organisers for waiting three days before suspending Fabio Fognini from the tournament for unsportsmanlike conduct during his first round defeat.

The 22nd seed Fognini was cited for three code violations during his 6-4 7-6(8) 3-6 6-0 loss to fellow Italian Stefano Travaglia on Wednesday and was heard directing vulgar language towards Swedish chair umpire Louise Engzell.

He was slapped with $24,000 (£18,500) in fines on Friday but was allowed to play two matches in the doubles tournament with partner Simone Bolelli before the Grand Slam Board announced their decision to suspend Fognini on Saturday.

"Fabio Fognini is hereby provisionally suspended from further participation in the U.S. Open pending a final determination whether a major offense has been committed during his first-round singles match," the Grand Slam Board said in a statement.

Sam Querrey defeated Stefan Kozlov 6-3 6-0 to advance into the second round of the Cincinnati Open.

Querrey was barely tested by his 19-year-old wildcard opponent in the 51-minute match during which he dropped only four points on serve and did not even face one break point.

"Went out there and just kind of put my head down and went to work, and played a really solid match from start to finish. It felt good," said Querrey.

Fognini wins Swiss Open 2017 title

Fognini wins Swiss Open 2017 title

Fabio Fognini defeated Yannick Hanfmann 6-4, 7-5 to win the Swiss Open 2017 title, his fifth career title.

Forgnini was always in control, racing to a 4-0 lead in the first set and never allowing a break-point chance in the second.

"It's always a good feeling when you win," said Fognini. "Our job is winning matches and of course I'm happy with this. It was a really tough week for me. I remember my first match was really difficult. I couldn't play. I lost the first set 6-1 in 20 minutes, but in the end I won the match. I said to my team that if I continue playing like that, I'll go home. That's the sport. Every day I was feeling better and now I'm here with the title."

"Yes, for sure," Fognini said, when asked if the title is any sweeter as a new father. "This is the first title as a father, so it's something different and special."

The 31st-ranked Fognini is now 5-8 in finals on the ATP tour. He earned a prize of 86,000 euros ($101,000), and Hanfmann got a career-best 45,000-euro check ($53,000) for his full week's work.

"Fabio was the better man today, he deserves to win," said Hanfmann. "I had an amazing week here in Gstaad, the crowd was great. I come from college tennis and I'm used to great crowds, but the atmosphere here was unbelievable."
