Pretty hilarious match. Extremely disappointing performance from the Italian overall. You just never know what to expect from Fabio. The way he saved 0-40 at 3-4 and three MPs at 4-5 was awesome to watch, his shotmaking talent and how he went for the winners on such crucial points, but then lost serve to lose the match anyway with easy errors. But that's part of his charm.

Marcel stayed mostly solid, served well, and that's all which was required.

The Fog didn't try AT ALL today :haha:. Only while saving the first three matchpoints, which were some of the best points of the tournament.

Probably got tired of Granollers' GOAT grunt.

really hate this granollers, no weapons at all, just relentless pushing and grunting.

Fog was hilariously in and out today.

Granollers the steadier, more secure, but his tactical grunting, which gets epically loud, is seriously annoying.

Worst loss of his career. 40 unforced errors...

Granollers finally wins back to back matches at tour level this year.

Hilarious from Fog. Too bad we have to watch (and hear) Granollers for one more match here.

The grunting was off putting, especially in the 1st, c'mon Marcel, this isn't the WTA where you need to resort to being loud to win.

Marcel is really annoying. His grunt is even the worse than Azarenka's and Pova's combined.
The Fog was awful sadly but he produced some great shots here and there.

Someone check Granollers' testosterone levels asap, this is getting seriously alarming.

Granollers grunting and time wasting his way to victory. I guess Fognini is one of the players that can't really complain about gamesmanship though.

I matches like these, where Granollers isn't rushing the net, he really is the most boring player on tour to watch.

Idiotic clown Fuckgini quickly and deservedly sent back crawling to the dark, stinky hole from where he sometimes pops up, Federina's rectal tract.

How much did you lose on this match?

he grunts on every shot, even when he pushes a lame shot...and tries to make it seem like he used a lot of effort. :facepalm:

How can anyone not love the way he produces WOW winners with almost zero effort/With being totally careless? Only Fabio can do this. :lol:

The result of this mugfest matters not one bit. Either one would be crushed by Nadal like a frozen garden slug under the tires of an 18 wheeler.

This is last time i backed this Fogtard...,he is dumbest player on tour, maybe with gael monfils.
Epic retardeness and uselles servis as well....almost like cipolla.
Good bye Fabio

Yet another match with too many errors, it's gotta be the wind and clay getting in players eyes that's causing this many, also perhaps the transition form blue to red clay.

Can't believe in my eyes, as I read, Marcel's grunting was the most important thing on this match... :facepalm:


Great match Marcel. And good comeback at second set. :hug: Third round against Nadal.

Less anyoing then Fabio for sure...,he is using his strengths and plays smart and Fabio is doing pretty man show, gaging from one foot on other, takes care for hair, slams net 40 times in match, blabing someting on italian and he is cool.
Italians will never have decent player.

Dear lord, I hadn't realized how annoying Marcel is :hysteric: Such a talentless pusher with a pathetic grunt, he is by far the most boring player in the tournament :hysteric:

Fabio :hug: Such a drama queen at the end :sobbing: :hysteric: The way he saved those first matchpoints :worship:

Most of people including me was fuled by fogs win over baghy...baghy was just uselles..one of his days with pms i guess and granollers beat FL who is in decent form and at least has nice serve.
Shame on us all...,why Fog would be favorite against Marcel anyway.
Clown no.2 on tour

Fognini missed his oppurtunity to make a run here and played very...nonchalant. He did hit a few great shots but by that time it was already too late.

Granollers game is boring and his grunt is annoying. Occasionally he charges the net a lot, and it is really fun to watch, but that only happens like twice a year.
