"I looked in the direction of where the noise came from. He [Fognini] then told me, 'Stop looking at me, what are you looking at me for?' and I was like, 'I was just about to hit a shot and someone made a noise.'

"He was then telling me to stop looking at him. Normally when someone shouts during the middle of a point, which is pretty rare something like that happens, he told me to stop complaining, to have a sense of humour, that when you have a volley on top of the net you're not going to miss it.

a person holding a racket on a court: From Laver-Rosewall to Borg-McEnroe and Nadal-Federer, tennis has produced some of the greatest rivalries in sports history—some more intense than others. As 14-time Grand Slam winner Pete Sampras once said, “It’s one-on-one out there, man. There ain’t no hiding. I can’t pass the ball.” Here are the most heated rivalries in the tennis world. These athletes may respect each other off the court, but when it comes time to play, they’re anything but friends.

"Well I know I'm not going to miss it but I wanted to know where the sound came from. It came from him, which you're not allowed to do, it's against the rules, it's hindrance, you shouldn't do it.

"He said I should have a sense of humour about it, but I would say in the moment neither of us were in a joking, laughing kind of mood. That was the issue."
