Bucharest R2: Fognini def. Baghdatis 7-5 7-6(4)

Baghdatis missed some ridiculous shots in the second set breaker to lose it from up *3-0 but Fabio hit some awesome shots, especially with his backhand, to take the breaker. Fabio hit some amazing winners to go from 1-*4 down in the first set to win it. He really displayed his high level of shotmaking today. Forehand, backhand, he can hit winners on the run, and in all directions, he changes direction on the ball effortlessly. He was also pretty consistent today, too.

Marcos had good moments but never found high gear. He was simply outplayed whenever Fabio was on his game.

Many amazing shots from the Fog. When his timing is on it's great to watch

Matches like this make you realize, damn..............this dude has GAME. And it makes you wonder, if he ever gets serious, which he's doing now, what he could be. Too bad it's taken him to almost 25 to get serious with his career. But sky is the limit for him now.

Baggy showed some nice choking abilities in this match. Some great winners by Fabio, though they weren't hit constantly throughout the match of course.

Very up-and-down match from the Fog, as always. But when he was on it was amazing to watch.
He is soo talented.

Big opportunity for him to win his first title here. But if Simon maintains his form it will be very tough.

Yeah, but isn't the Fog like the Cassano of tennis.
