I usually have an eye out for improving my italian language ability, always not very good and later, as a long time has gone by since I studied for a couple years, worse..
So, this link amused me, though I know it shouldn't have. Two more words I didn't know!

Fabio Fognini was in effect kicked out of the US Open on Saturday, accused of shouting obscenities at a female umpire during his defeat by his fellow Italian Stefano Tavaglia, a qualifier who bagled the 22nd seed in the last of four sets in the first round.
Fognini, whose legendary volatility had dimmed since his marriage to the retired US Open champion Flavia Pennetta last year, then the birth of their first child in May, exploded three times during the match.
Louise Engzelle, the Swedish umpire, reported Fognini after he called her, in Italian, “troia” and “bocchinara” – which translate as “whore” and “**********”. He received three fines from the International Tennis Federation of $4,000, $15,000 and $5,000, to which he responded, according to the Italian tennis website Ubitennis: “Today they’re all moralists.”
