US Open 1R: The Fog standardizes Roger-Vasselin 3-6, 5-7, 6-4, 6-4, 7-5

All-round scoreboard classic as expected.

The Fog marches on to who knows where...

One thing in tennis is for sure: If you want entertainment for your money's worth, go watch the Fog play, especially in Grand Slams.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

The Fog got up 2 breaks in set 5 but you knew it would never be easy, ERV got back on serve before the Fog showed him who was boss

There's a reason Fabio was voted the greatest entertainer in any field of the 20th and 21st century combined.

You could have placed a bet on a scoreline like this, both because it's Fognini and because it's Roger-Vasselin. Doud always gets tight

BEMELMANS | CHARDY | CHIUDINELLI
CIPOLLA| ROGER-VASSELIN | MCGEE




Bachinger|Basilashvili|Brands|Broady|Clezar|Cuevas |Eysseric|Giannessi|Gombos
Granollers|Grigelis|Huta Galung|Ilhan|Kudla|Al. Kuznetsov|Mannarino
Menendez|Mitchell|Naso|Paire|Peliwo|Polansky|Rober t|Rubin|Smyczek|J. Sousa|Weintraub

ERV is like the most tightest player out there he will lose a deciding set 9/10, such a shame.

Classic Fog just by looking at the scoreline. No wonder why DEUCE magazine called his article "The Art of Suffering"

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Vintage from the Fog. It's effortless for him to win these epics.

Oh my god, Fognini vs Garcia will be a masterpiece of beautiful apathy (Though it seems to give both more epic comebacks than anything else)

ERV always in the long battles and hardly ever winning them. Then there is the Fog he loves this sort of stuff, he does it for the fans.

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".
