Italian Tennis player Flavia Pennetta may be headed for trouble after showing her middle finger to the chair umpire during a Fed Cup match against french player Amelie Mauresmo.

Flavia Pennetta was upset over the chair umpire overruling a backhand passing shot by Pennetta that was initially called in. Clearly upset over this, Pennetta mouthed an insult to the chair umpire and then later showed her middle finger. Pennetta went on to win the game 2-6,7-6,6-4.

Tennis fans and many former tennis players are calling for an immediate suspension on Flavia Pennetta for her display of poor sportsmanship during the game.
