Fabio Fognini: The Most Interesting Tennis Player in the World

What a legend this guy is. Complains left and right, tanks matches when he feels, and on rare occasions, actually plays to his full potential.

He is wanted in 30 countries.......Mostly for his headshots.

Women want him......Men....want to punch him in the face.

He makes Lopez look ugly.

He has more hair gel deals than Verdasco.

He is...The Most Interesting Tennis Player in the World.

He doesn't always play tennis, but when he does, he prefers clay. Stay muggy, my friends.

I have always liked him. The quarterfinal run here will open some eyes.

Any man that publicly insults Robredo is a true hero and legend of the game.

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

I love Fognini. Sometimes I feel like he tries to piss off the crowd just to pump himself up. And he says what he thinks when he thinks it. And that epic match against Monfils, the French crowd, and the tournament officials last year makes him hard not to love.

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

I've actually seen this man in the flesh.

Fabio coined the expression Man of Shit, and that he should get credit for. But he's really a huge clown.

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

The greatness in the man lies in his ability to put his heart and soul into p!ssing off everyone within earshot, rather than wasting his energies on developing his obviously huge potential.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Fabio fognini

The man of shit story.

I'd buy that for a dollar

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.

Sounds like he needs to play some doubles with Koellerer.

He doesn't always insult people in Spanish, but when he does, he invents awesome new words.
