Italian hot-head Fabio Fognini is facing the prospect of being banned from the USA and Australian Opens after claiming he wished a bomb would drop on Wimbledon.
To many players Wimbledon's manicured lawns are the finest grass courts in the world, but seemingly not to Fabio Fognini, who cursed the English and said he wished a bomb would explode at the All England Club on Saturday.
A post-match apology is unlikely to save Italian firebrand Fabio Fognini from potentially the largest fine in grand slam history - nearly $360,000 - after saying he wished "a bomb would explode on this club" during Wimbledon defeat. "A bomb should explode here", according to Sky News.
Fognini apologized during his post-match press conference, stating the comments came in the heat of the moment; he was upset about his play and the court's conditions.
"The court was not really good..." "Something happened on court", he said.
During a three-set loss to 94th ranked player Tennys Sandgren, a visibly frustrated Fabio Fognini had to take a medical time-out for treatment to his bloodied knuckles on his right hand after punching his racket.
"For sure I was not happy about my performance today". Now I have to be focused on the second half of the season. If somebody feels offended, I say sorry.
Fognini was put on probation for two years with an assurance the fine would halved if he didn't misbehave at the majors through 2018-2019.
