Re: Fabio Fognini - The Hope of Italy
VEGETA CROATIA OPEN UAMG 2013
Fabio Fognini is chasing his third ATP World Tour title in as many weeks.

World No. 19 Fabio Fognini is two wins from capturing his third ATP World Tour title in a row after reaching the semi-finals of the Vegeta Croatia Open Umag on Friday. The third-seeded Italian defeated Martin Klizan 6-4, 6-2.
Fognini is on a 12-match winning streak, having won his first two ATP World Tour trophies in the past two weeks in Stuttgart (d. Kohlschreiber) and Hamburg (d. Delbonis). This week he broke into the Top 20 of the Emirates ATP Rankings.
The 26-year-old Fognini is through to the Umag semi-finals for the third time (2008,’11) and will face Gael Monfils, whom he trails 1-2 in their FedEx ATP Head2Head series, losing to the Frenchman two months ago in Nice.
