Pfff Fognini is talented but what a mug mentality. Guy simply couldn't carry any momentum from saving a lost match.

Tommy played a very aggressive match, his serve+forehand combination won him points throughout the match. Fabio just isn't on the level of Tommy when Tommy playing well, especially mentally. Tommy choked that second set but recovered nicely.

Tommy was very loud today and yelling vamos a lot, I don't think the bad blood has washed away, but they kept it professional enough where they didn't spill it onto the court. Good win for Tommy.

Oxymoron.

Boredo can't play tennis.

That overhead smash in the second set hurt me physically to watch D:

But good job recovering Tommy :D

I am a big fan of Fognini, his is just so different, you don`t what is going trough his head, he plays his best when he is on the ropes. He is the type of player that when things are out of ordinary he is exceling, when the play is "messy" he is playing his best and I like that.

Stop playing dumb, man. Robredo was a consistent top 10, with several titles. You don`t like his style, neither do a lot of people, but that doesn't mean he is not a great player. Learn to differentiate taste from facts. He plays the bread and butter tennis really well, combined with mental fortitude, is why he gets the great results that he gets.

Of course it's an exaggeration, but Boredo plays disgusting tennis.

good win for shitman.

He went 12-1 in Chile/Costa/BA in 09 so I doubt he'll tank this week

Watched until the end of the 2nd set and went to sleep happy. Woke up to find the fog had imploded once again. Not so happy:rolleyes:

Boredo was so ridiculously loud in this match. Worse than the WTA. He was not grunting in effort that's for sure:devil:

Anyway congrats to him. He's really focused these days. That one set against Roger's obviously done him the world of good :eek:

No fighting although the fog had a go at the umpire a couple of times but it wouldn't be a fog match without those. Actually it helped him focus and he wound up breaking the bore's serve in the 2nd set :lol: He also chatted away with the lines people as though they were old friends. The way he saunters around the court making his opponents wait is the stuff of legend ;)

I dare anyone not to like the crazy fog :worship:

Everytime Robredo wins, tennis loses :(

I have to admit though, I don't like Robredo very much, but he is a better player than the Fog, sadly..

Robredo having a single handed backhand is enough to like him to some extent.

I don't get why so many people hate him.

Hmm, I don't know.. maybe it has something to do with the fact that he has the worst personality of all the guys on the tour?:shrug: I cringed when I saw how he behaved in the match against Fognini in Chile.. ugh :(

The fog should stop extending his hand out like that. It looks embarassing when Boredo decides not to shake it :o Thankfully this time the Spaniard was in a good mood :yeah:

Congrats Tommy :bounce:
Nice to read he played aggressively with serve and forehand :banana:
I really hope he can keep his momentum for the whole Euro clay season :banana:

Posts were changed because of biased moderating. Some had to whine about Boredo's very fitting nickname.
