Fognini to the chair umpire: "Do you get up because I'm beautiful?"

Fabio Fognini was capitulated in the second round of the Roland Garros 2022 against Botic Van de Zandschulp also due to the withdrawal in the third set after losing the first two 4-6 6-7. The 35-year-old Italian tennis player, during the first set, became the protagonist of a funny moment with the chair umpire.

In fact, as the former 2019 Monte Carlo champion was preparing to serve, he was stopped by the referee because a touch judge had not yet returned to his position. Fognini then asked if he had stood up because he was handsome, receiving a yes for an answer.

By virtue of this response, Fabio closed this nice curtain by sending him a kiss. In the next round of the Paris Open, Van de Zandschulp will have to contend with thirteen-time French Open winner Rafael Nadal. Here is the video published by Eurosport:
