Marton Fucsovics complains and curses about "12-year-old" Sebastian Baez in Lyon
The No. 6 seed had the final proverbial word when he wrapped up a 6-4, 7-6 (5) victory on Tuesday.

In the case of Marton Fucsovics, maybe not.
On Tuesday, the Hungarian let it be known he didn’t appreciate the conduct of his opponent during an eventual first-round defeat in Lyon. After falling behind a set and a break to Sebastian Baez, Fucsovics walked past the Argentine’s chair with a question.
“How old are you… 12 years old?” he said.
Baez promptly responded, “No, 22.”
The 31-year-old sat down and served up running commentary during the changeover.
- “These fu#@ing 20 years old guys.”
- “Playing so unfair.”
- “Vamos for every point I miss.”
- “Screaming like a bi#@$.”
The chair umpire told Fucsovics, “I don’t want these words,” in reference to the language spewing from his mouth. Before taking his side of the court, Fucsovics made a passing reference to Cam Norrie’s behavior.
Upon losing, Fucsovics shook Baez’s hand, though used the moment to voice his frustration directly one last time. Needless to say, the No. 6 seed had the proverbial final word by virtue of his 6-4, 7-6 (5) victory.
