A clown, maybe.

A mug, perhaps.

A legend, without a doubt.

Fognini is a man who has truly figured life out.

Well now this is something we simply cannot have. The two of them playing doubles on the same court would soil many a female's panties.

Did you hear that? That was the sound of millions of women's panties dropping around the world
This woman speaks the truth.

Without a doubt.

But as a person I doubt 'interesting' is the correct description. Fairly sure he's an arrogant, self-involved, vacuous moron.... but I could be wrong.
All the qualities of a true legend.

What a champion. Making sure the crowd always gets its money's worth and keeping the tension always high in his matches.

but im curious what makes you think that as apparently the OP and others think the same. does he have a history of appearing in magazines and shows? i know little about the fog. in fact, i didn't care at all about him until he called boredo "the shitman". in any case, from what i've seen, i hardly think he's got the potential to enter the top 10. even for the standards of the current era, i think i'd be a bit surprised if he ever gets to the top 20.
The Fog is a legend. His exploits are well documented. As for top 20, or even top 10, if he wants to, he will.

don't you see these "i'm divine" pics?

verdasco got to top 10 because these days it looks like it does, that's why i think fognini can get there without a major problem too
Should Fognini get to top 10 or 20, his star will rise exponentially. And that day, all will know the full legend of The Fog.
