Seriously? 10,000 bucks?

I don't know the Italian language, but on the face of it, it's absolutely ridiculous.

It's in Dutch, but I used google translator, which helped:

That's crazy getting fined for that at all, let alone 10,000. Insane and unjust.

Exactly. If we all got fined ten grand for playing according to stereotype, well, someone would get very rich very fast...

Well, yes, that was rather an operatic Italian display, but all he said was "It's not true, it's not true," then basically, 'what are you doing to me?' Only at the end did he say "Che cazzo fai? Madonna mia!" Which is sort of the equivalent of the F-bomb, but also not really. If he got fined for that, it IS insane and unjust. Really that's just good tennis theater. (HOW many hits on youtube.com...for a match that most wouldn't spare two seconds to watch?? The ATP should GIVE Fognini $10,000...for the publicity.)
