Re: Fabio Fognini: The Most Interesting Tennis Player in the World

LOL. From his wikipedia page: "His novel interpretation of particular rules, including those regarding medical time-outs and foot faults, have made him a cult hero among hardcore tennis fans." and the footnote after this sentence actually refers to this topic. No kidding!!!

Federer: Lord of the Strings (quote borrowed from another MTF-poster)
Safin: His Royal Dork-ness
Hewitt: Mowing a lawn near you
Kuerten: tennis in the shape of a heart

Re: Fabio Fognini: The Most Interesting Tennis Player in the World

Fognini with his disproportional body building looks like a giant among dwarfs

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Chiquita bananas ECC Antwerp

He needs to start posing without the pants. We need replacements for those terrible nude pics of Robredo and Lopez. Anyone who thinks that pic of Lopez in particular is something nice to look at needs a shrink.

Re: Fabio Fognini: The Most Interesting Tennis Player in the World

Fognini will return to play Davis Cup for Italy today and then Stuttgart next week.

Hopefully he has recovered from the injury from the Montanes epic from RG.

Forza!!!!

Re: Fabio Fognini: The Most Interesting Tennis Player in the World

He won his match, of course there were the shouts, gesticulations and strutting.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Such a kind man. Giving Zemlja a 1-6 set to start off and give the guy hope, and keep the next 3 sets interesting.

Fognini knows how this game works.

Re: Fabio Fognini: The Most Interesting Tennis Player in the World

Fognini plays German WC and 1148th ranked 17 year old Robin Kern in the 1st round.

I don't always embarrass young wild cards in front of their home crowd, but when I do, I prefer Germany.

A possible pure sex matchup with Davydenko in the 2nd round. The women in Stuttgart are truly being treated this week.

Re: Fabio Fognini: The Most Interesting Tennis Player in the World

Fabio is into the semifinals in Umug, taking out Starace, 6-1 in the third.

Fognini plays Marin Cilic, the Croat fave in what will prove to be an epic encounter.
