St Petersburg QF : Fognini def. Bautista-Agut 6-4 7-6(1)

Not much trolling from the Fog today. He plays DGT in the semis and a big chance for another tour final.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Fognini almost choked by getting broken 5*-4 in the 2nd but luckily Bautista-Agut forgot how to play tennis in the tb. Also DFed on MP



World #1.

Some people mistake the Distant Sun for an eternally raging fireball calling for your demise. Just like aliens from outer space. Aliens from other planets. Aliens in galaxies too far away from your own comprehension. Your demise is ultimately irrelevant and meaningless.

Do not question our motives, our objectives, or our qualities. Question your own place in the universe.

Broken while serving for the match. Gave a glimpse of his usual self there. One ridiculous point in that game too, Bautista-Agut ran all over the court defending before Fog tried a little push forehand half volley into the net. Entertaining match imo, some ridiculously poor decision making but it makes for intruiging rallies. The facial expressions are obviously gold as well.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

The game wins whenever the most interesting player in the world wins.

He was gesturing to Bernandes after the 3rd game about something. Bautigol was just running but the TB was pretty funny. I didn't say there was no Fog trolling

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".

Be fun if Fog finally wins a title ........ and it's indoors, not clay. Like Seppi managing it on grass.

Good work man.

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".
