China Daily | Updated: 2017-10-13 08:04

Italian Fabio Fognini was fined $96,000 and hit with a suspended ban from two Grand Slams on Wednesday for having insulted an umpire at the US Open.

Fognini was kicked out of the US Open and fined $24,000 at the time for launching a sexist tirade at Swedish female umpire Louise Engzell after a first-round defeat to compatriot Stefano Travaglia at the end of August.

The world No 28 has been warned that if he offends again by the end of 2019, he will be banned from two Grand Slams, one of which will be the US Open.
