Fabio Fognini has shared a hilarious snap of his newly-refurbished toilet to his Instagram story.
The Italian crashed out of the Australian Open in the first round of the men’s doubles alongside countryman Simone Bolelli last week, and had no luck in the men’s singles losing to Thanasi Kokkinakis in a rain-delayed clash.
However, despite the disappointing performances, Fognini has seemingly kept his spirits high by conducting some home improvements.
Fabio Fognini shared a photo of his tennis court-themed toilet to his Instagram story
Sharing a story to his 648k followers on Instagram, Fognini pictured a toilet with a floor containing the markings of a tennis court on his preferred red clay surface.
The 2019 Monte-Carlo Masters winner made the logical step of stopping short of adding a net inside the WC, before captioning the post indicating that his work was complete.
But it isn’t the first time the 35-year-old has made news for his lavatory habits during his career.
Fognini endured a disappointing Australian Open, crashing out in the first round in both the men’s singles and men’s doubles
The Italian previously made headlines for having to briefly pause a doubles tie to rush to the WC
During a Davis Cup tie in 2018, Fognini left all in attendance puzzled as he raced off court during a back-and-forth doubles match against Japan.
When questioned by the umpire why he was leaving, the Italian insisted that he desperately needed the toilet and was no doubt relieved as the umpire allowed him to.
Freshley relieved, Fognini returned to the court and he and partner Bolelli triumphed in four sets.
