The Italian used insulting language towards Louise Engzell in his first-round defeat by Stefano Travaglia.

The 30-year-old world number 28 was initially fined $24,000 (18,000) and suspended from the US Open.

If he does not commit another offence in the next two Grand Slam seasons, his punishment will be reduced.
