The Hungarian walked over to Baez and asked him how old he was and before his opponent could answer he patronisingly suggested he was 12-years-old.
Baez, 22, calmly dealt with the situation by simply answering Fucsovics’ question.
He said: “No, 22”, but that didn’t stop Fucsovics from carrying on his rant with his tempers high.
The tennis star, who has been dubbed the bodybuilder due to his insane physique, turned his attention to the umpire to express his dismay at Baez.
He said: “The f*****g 20-year-old guys. Not that he is the only one, playing so unfair.
“[He says] Vamos for every point I miss and screaming like a b***h”
The umpire took issue with Fucsovics foul language and explained that he couldn’t talk like that on the court.
He said: “It’s okay for you to talk to me, but I don’t want this kind of language.

In the end it was Baez that came out victorious with the Argentine winning in straight sets.
