Why the Fabio Fognini punishment could ring hollow



The Grand Slam Board's recent decision in the case of Fabio Fognini reads like the lords of tennis went out of their way not to come down too hard on the hotheaded player despite the repugnant nature of the offenses he committed at the US Open.

Early this week, the board (which writes and enforces the rules for the four major tournaments) concluded its investigation of the Fognini affair and provisionally fined him $94,000, while suspending him for two Grand Slam tournaments -- but only if he commits another "major offense" in the next two years.

In other words, Fognini walks. His sentence amounts to probation, not a suspension. And that $94,000 fine automatically gets reduced to $48,000 if the flashy 30-year-old Italian, now ranked No. 28, can control his temper and incur no further major offenses over the 24-month period ending in September 2019.
