Fognini Gets Fine, Suspended Grand Slam Ban for Insulting Female Chair Umpire

LONDON – The Grand Slam Board on Wednesday handed Italian tennis player Fabio Fognini a suspended ban covering two Grand Slam events and a fine of $96,000 for insulting a chair umpire during the 2017 US Open.

The board said Fognini would be banned from participating in two Grand Slam events, one of which would be the US Open, if he violated the code of conduct during the next two seasons.

The Italian player’s fine could be reduced to $48,000 if he does not commit any code violations before the end of 2019.

The 30-year-old Fognini, who is married to 2015 US Open women’s champion Flavia Pennetta, used abusive language toward Swedish chair umpire Louise Engzell during his first-round loss to countryman Stefano Traveglia, who won 6-4, 7-6 (10-8), 3-6, 6-0.

The board warned Fognini that it would impose the penalties immediately in the case of further violations.

Fognini accepted the decision and said he would not appeal, the board said.
