I'm really torn here. Fabio has been to 6 previous SF's and lost in all of them:
Umag 2011, lost to Cilic in 2
Santiago 2011, lost to Robredo in 3 (called him Shitman after the match)
Stuttgart 2009, lost to Hanescu in 3 (beat Davydenko in QF)
Umag 2008, lost to Verdasco in 2
Warsaw 2008, lost Davydenko in 2
Costa Do Sauipe 2008, lost to Almagro in 2
I actually like Fognini even though his on court behavior is really silly at times. He has a really nice game on clay.
Still, this is a great opportunity for Balazs and would really help his ranking. So either way I will be satisfied.
All of the players he lost to are good players though....
