RG R1: Fognini def Istomin 6-4 6-2 6-2

Really pathetic result, Istomin broken 7x and had 43 ues. From the stats looks like Fognini just kept the ball in play

Istomin is in terrible form right now, but even before that Fognini just far, far better on clay.

p.s. flyboy will be in this thread very soon talking about how Istomin doesn't deserve his top-100 spot, is bad, etc.

Re: RG R1: Fognini def Istomin 6-4 6-2 6-2

A much needed victory for Fabio, he won 78% of first serve points. A great stat for him. Istomin struggled on his service and definitely made too many mistakes it seems. The first set was topsy-turvy and Fabio hit quite a few DF's, so I'm glad he was able to get a hold of his game and take the set and eventually the match. He's been in poor form so this is a good shot in the arm, and an expected win on this surface.

No, Smoke. I think Istomin is a top 100 player. I like Denis. But the truth is, he's been horrible since basically post USO last year. I don't know if his issues are physical or mental, but he hasn't looked on court whatsoever. Also his serve is one of the worst in the top 100 as of right now and he struggles to hold constantly.

You know you're terrible if Fognini beats you in straights, the guy always loses a set.

Good for Fabio.

43 UEs in the pros. There is no real excuse.

Didn't see the match but if that's true it must have been a tremendous effort for Fognini, hence he deserves to win.

Re: RG R1: Fognini def Istomin 6-4 6-2 6-2

I was wondering if Fog could upset Berdych, but I think Berdych will collect himself. Otherwise he'll lose his legitimacy of ever being a top 8 player. He's already lost respect for a lot of strange losses, no need to dent his career furthermore.
