Fognini apologises for insulting umpire at US Open

Fognini apologises for insulting umpire at US Open
ROME: Fabio Fognini has apologised for insulting a chair umpire at the US Open and said that he is prepared to discuss his mistake with schoolchildren as a lesson.
Fognini was kicked out of the New York tournament on Saturday and could be banned from all Grand Slam events.
"I apologise to everyone, not only the chair umpire, to whom I already apologized in New York, but to everyone who felt offended — women above all," Fognini told Italy's Sky TV in a report that was broadcast on Tuesday.
"Being described as sexist hurt me, because it's not true," said Fognini, who is married to 2015 US Open champion Flavia Pennetta.
