Lost in all of the talk about "what happened to civility?" (Serena Williams, Kanye West, Joe Williams) is the outburst which came from Roger Federer yesterday during the Mens Final of the U.S. Tennis Open. Yes, that Roger Federer--the Swiss metronome who has won more major championships than any other tennis player in history.

Federer cursed the match umpire during an argument about the time his opponent, Juan Martin del Potro, was taking to challenge line calls. The normally unflappable Federer uttered the word (associated with human excrement) on camera and within audio range of the microphone.

With that we'll give R-Fed our "Un-civility act of the week."
