Italian Fabio Fognini was fined $96,000 (81,000 euros) and hit with a suspended ban from two Grand Slams 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 Italian compatriot Stefano Travaglia. The world No.28 has been warned that if he re-offends between now and the end of 2019, he will be banned from two Grand Slams, one of which will be the US Open. However, if he keeps out of trouble his fine will be halved.

The USTA and WTA allowed Sharapova to use dope for her entire career, until WADA busted her. Sharapova is receiving Wildcards as HUSH money.... Sharapova receives HUSHcards from the USTA and WTA, not Wildcards
