Fabio Fognini breaks the racket and insults the chair umpire!

Fabio Fognini was yesterday on the score of 0-2 in the first round match of the Australian Open 2020 against Reilly Opelka, then suspended due to rain. Today the match resumed and Fognini won at the end of a great comeback, with the final score of 3-6 6-7 6-4 6-3 7-6.

In the second game of the fifth set, Fognini insulted the chair umpire Carlos Bernardes Fefè, who inflicted him a penalty point after the Italian try to break a racket: "I pity you! I just did so with the racket.

You can't talk, shut up, I did it twice. Then did you understand why I don't want to see you anymore? You can't give me the penalty in the fifth set. We are 1-0 in the fifth set, you have to use your head and don't give me a penalty point.

I didn't f**k you. For that I don't want to be with you, you don't give me security and I don't like you. I already have my thing, then I see you in the chair and I'm over the edge!"
