Fabio Fognini got slapped today with $27,500 in fines at Wimbledon today. The predictably dramatic Italian once again couldn’t resist getting involved with umpires and officials during his first round win over Alex Kuznetsov on Monday and now will have to pay for it.
According to reports, Fognini was hit with two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties one for $20K and another for $5K plus a third fine of $2.5K for what a visible obscenity.
Fognini was seen arguing with the chair umpire in his first round match, even swearing. Then getting in the face of a tournament referee.
“They have rules here, different from other (tournaments), that need to be followed,” Fognini told the AP after beating Tim Puetz in the second round.
Fognini will now play Kevin Anderson on Friday in the Wimbledon third round.
