Re: Fabio Fognini - The Hope of Italy
Fabio and Bolelli won over the Croatian pair of Cilic/Zovko 6-3 5-7 10-7 to win the Umag championship! Great result for the guys. They beat some good teams to get to the final, including another Croatian pair Dodig/Veic 17-15 in the super-tiebreak in R2. Fabio is at a career-high 65 in doubles.
His SF is singles is his best result since his comeback but the heavy loss to Cilic shows work yet needs to be done. He has a bye in R1 of Kitzbuhel and plays either Giraldo or Brands in R2.
