Federer fined $3,000 for swearing at the Australian Open

It is hard to believe that the Swiss tennis player is fined because of having misconduct at the 2020 Australian Open.

According to the Serbian chair umpire Marijana Veljovic, one line judge reported to her that he heard that Federer had sworn something in the match between him and the American fellow Tennys Sandgren.

It was the match that Federer had to save seven match points before winning to advance to the semi-finals.

Federer's misconduct happened at the third set of the match, and the Swiss player also admitted that he had sworn something in the mixed language. However, from the perspective of Federer, he thought it was very normal when he did not play as well as he wanted in that match.

Recently, Federer was eliminated by the defending champion Novak Djokovic in straight sets. Although he had a great advantage to lead 5-2 in the first set, he lost it before losing in the tie-break.

In the following minutes, Federer went on making many mistakes, ending the match in three sets.

As a result, Novak Djokovic continued defending his champion title by advancing to the final match, when he will face the winner of the game between Alexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem.

The remaining semi-final match will be held tomorrow, in other words, Nole has the advantage to have one more resting day compared to his opponent, who will likely be Dominic Thiem.
