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

Fabio will now move up to about 30th in the rankings.

Luckily the world will know more about this legend with this higher rank, more direct entry in ATP events.

If he gives a shit, that is.

Why are you even here, mr. "I-only-support-winners"? Go back to following the top 3, bandwagoner.

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

The fog was a legend long before his mugfils match

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

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

I don't always call for a medical timeout, but when I do, I prefer at 6-7, 15-30 in the fifth between my own first and 2nd serves.

Stay cramping, my friends.

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

Unlikely. Unless he beats Djokovic or gets a WC to Halle/Queens.

He is playing Eastbourne after RG.

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

Love the guy really. If the Fog takes tennis seriously he will be easily top 20 for sure.
But i really love his "I don't give a damn" attitude.

This is true. But what is Fognini's adjusted grass ranking?

It is possible.

Didn't he beat fiasco round 1?
