Roland Garros R1: Fognini def. [WC] Mannarino 6-0 7-5 6-1

First result of the tournament!

Good match from Fabio outside of a lapse to start the second set. Clean hitting, not too many bad errors, good returning, moved well, and his body language was a lot better than it usually is.

Adrian had some chances to get into the match, being up a break in the second set and having chances to break at 1-3 in the third, but was horrible overall, played without confidence, and has no real clay court game.

If Fabio plays like this going forward, he can make potentially the R4 here for sure.

Nice Sunday breakfast for Mannarino.

The Fog serving a bagel and breadstick, he just needed some training so had fun in set 2.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Fogmeister is in his right element. The title is his for the taking.

Fognini will go far again, he seems to be ready for belluci/troicki and should make r4

His Fogness showing up for his tournament again. Hope he won't give a walk over when he reaches the quarters this time.

Predictable victory for Fognini against the French man who couldn't find his best tennis yet in this first half of the year. Not so sure to affirm that Fognini will go further this year as he will find a real hard bone on Troicki or Bellucci in 2nd or Tsonga in 3rd round.

Easy job for Fabio, he always gives his best in RG, very good match vs Bellucci/Troicki next. A pity for Mannarino, he needs more match practice.
