Chief executive Richard Lewis called what Fognini said "a very unfortunate comment" but also "one of those heat-of-the-moment comments."
Sandgren, ranked 94th, advanced Saturday by eliminating No. 12 seed Fabio Fognini 6-3, 7-6 (12), 6-3 in a match marked by Fognini's outburst, in Italian, in which he said the All England Club deserved to be hit by a bomb.
