One of the greatest doubles players in US Open history has been fined for making a gun gesture with his tennis racket?

It’s hard to believe, but it happened.

Doubles tennis player Mike Bryan challenged a line call during a match at the US Open.  He showed his displeasure with the call by making a gun gesture with his tennis racquet.

He was fined a whopping $10,000! This is ridiculous!

Watch the video below and tell us what you think:

Bryan apologized after the match for the gesture:

‘I apologize for any offense I may have caused. We won the point and the gesture was meant to be playful. But given the recent news and political climate, I understand how my gesture could be viewed as insensitive. I promise that I will never do anything like this again.’ 

The Bryan brothers are incredible doubles players:

They won the Doubles Championship at the US Open last year and have won many other championships.

Wonder if the FBI will be coming to take his guns away because of the “red flag law”.

This is the slippery slope we’re on with gun control.
