Re: Fabio Fognini: The Most Interesting Tennis Player in the World
Fognini is crazy man, he is an artist, when he plays is like 90% emotion and 10% reasoning, he is at his best when things get messy he is not one to follow tatical plans very mcuh. when he is detached from a match he is a mug of the highest caliber, but when he gets involved by whatever reason he just gets a lot better.
Obviously, you play a lot of mind games with yourself, but it is important to always believe that you can play your best, perform your best, and in the end, your convictions are stronger than your doubts.
