This is how Fucsovics defines Baez's noises during points: Screaming like a b****
The first round of the Lyon tournament, which pitted Sebastian Baez against Marton Fucsovics, had a moment of tension when the Hungarian complained bitterly to the chair umpire about the constant shouting of his rival when hitting the tennis ball.
First Fucsovics approached the Argentine and questioned him.
“How old are you? 12?” he reproached his opponent.
“No, 22,” Baez responded.
The debate did not stop there, and Marton, once in the change chair, gave free rein to everything that was going through his head.
“These f***ing 20 year old kids,” he complained.
“It’s just that he’s not the only one who acts in such an unsportsmanlike manner.
“He yells ‘come on’ every time I miss a ball. He yells like a b****.”
The umpire had to take matters into his own hands and ask Fucsovics to calm down.
“I don’t want you to talk like that,” he insisted.
“I understand that you are frustrated and you don’t like it, but I don’t want this kind of words on the court.”
The Hungarian insisted that the same thing had happened to him with Cameron Norrie in Rome.
“I know they are allowed to act this way,” he said.
The match was eventually won by Baez 6-4, 7-6(5).
