The worst of Fabio Fognini


The thing about Fabio Fognini is that he can be funny.

He can be endearing – in a childish way.


And, above all, he is supremely talented. His brand of tennis looks so effortless, almost anyone player in the world will watch and think, “How come it’s not that easy for the rest of us?”

But predominantly, Fognini is profane. Disrespectful. Offensive. Fully fluent in four-letter words in multiple languages.

And as of Wednesday, he’s on a short leash with a potential two-Slam suspension hanging over his head.

Here’s just a small taste of it.
