ITALIAN loose cannon Fabio Fognini wished a “bomb would explode” on Wimbledon in an extraordinary outburst.
The No12 seed was unhappy his singles match against American Tennys Sandgren, which he lost 6-3 7-6 6-3, was moved to Court No14 for a 12.30pm start.
In a moment of utter frustration, in the fifth game of the second set, on-court microphones picked up the Italian saying: “It’s fair to play here?
“Damn, English, really. Damned really.
“Wish a bomb would explode on this club. A bomb should explode here.”
SunSport have contacted the All England Club for comment and the 32-year-old could being fined for his antics.
Fognini is renowned for his bad behaviour on-court.
He was kicked out of the 2017 US Open before his doubles clash after being accused of shouting obscenities at a female umpire in a single match.
