U.S. Open Fines Mike Bryan for Making Gun Gesture to a Line Judge

The United States Open fined the doubles player Mike Bryan $10,000 on Sunday after he received an unsportsmanlike conduct warning in a second-round match early that morning for pointing his racket at an official, mimicking the pointing of a rifle.

On the first point of the 12th game of the second set of Mike Bryan and Bob Bryan’s match against Federico Delbonis and Roberto Carballés Baena, a lob from Delbonis landed close to the baseline and was called in. Mike Bryan immediately challenged the call; a video review showed the ball had landed about half an inch out.

As the screen validated Bryan’s call, he held his racket in both hands and pointed the handle at the line judge as if it were the barrel of a rifle.

Icebreaker Crowd

Opening shots from Peter von Bagh's 2008 documentary "Helsinki, ikuisesti" ("Helsinki Forever" ) show a crowd admiring (and soon being chased by) the icebreaker Tarmo in Helsinki, Finland. Apparently filmed in the 1920s.

The voiceover quoting Eino Leino towards the end is not related to this footage in particular. It translates roughly as:

"We do not live only in the present
The past – with all its memories, events and experiences – lives in us
And often it just might so happen that the past is stronger than the present"
