According to the BBC, Roger Federer was fined $1,500 for unleashing the “S” bomb on live tv during his match against Juan Marin Del Potro in the U.S. Open Men’s Final.
Federer, unhappy with the fact that Del Potro took too long to request a challenge, got into an argument with the chair umpire who at one point told Federer to “be quiet” which prompted the outburst.
The BBC also listed other offenders who got fined during the event including Vera Zvonareva and Daniel Koellerer for obscenities, Daniel Neston who got tagged with a $3,000 fine for unsportsmanlike conduct towards a fan and finally, and the most obvious, Serena Williams for her meltdown during her semifinal.
One wonders that when Fed hits thirty if he will morph into the “cranky old guy” upset that all the young punks have started to pass him by.
