GGL never had a chance.

The Fog oftentimes throws sets away.....just to make sure the crowd gets their money's worth.

He once DIDN'T look at himself in a mirror for a whole day.....just to see how it feels.

"I don't always call people shit, but when I do, I prefer Robredo. Stay fucking, my friends."

A clown, maybe.

A mug, perhaps.

A legend, without a doubt.

Fognini is a man who has truly figured life out.

Well now this is something we simply cannot have. The two of them playing doubles on the same court would soil many a female's panties.

But as a person I doubt 'interesting' is the correct description. Fairly sure he's an arrogant, self-involved, vacuous moron.... but I could be wrong.
All the qualities of a true legend.

What a champion. Making sure the crowd always gets its money's worth and keeping the tension always high in his matches.

but im curious what makes you think that as apparently the OP and others think the same. does he have a history of appearing in magazines and shows? i know little about the fog. in fact, i didn't care at all about him until he called boredo "the shitman". in any case, from what i've seen, i hardly think he's got the potential to enter the top 10. even for the standards of the current era, i think i'd be a bit surprised if he ever gets to the top 20.
The Fog is a legend. His exploits are well documented. As for top 20, or even top 10, if he wants to, he will.

don't you see these "i'm divine" pics?

verdasco got to top 10 because these days it looks like it does, that's why i think fognini can get there without a major problem too
Should Fognini get to top 10 or 20, his star will rise exponentially. And that day, all will know the full legend of The Fog.

Nice rare one on one interview with The Fog. He tried and did it in English...

He's not in the quarter-final yet He still has to face Montanes.

What's with this thread? He's not that great. He's a solid 25-30 player if he puts the effort in all the time, which he doesn't almost 90% of the time. What's so great about that?

There is more to tennis than just results and ranking.

First of all, I would go watch Fognini over almost anyone. The man just has hilarious potential that I would never want to miss. I might even consider cursing at him just to see what kind of amazing reaction it gets.

Second, to the earlier quote that one out of every 10 ATP players is a Fognini, I disagree. Some might be like Fognini, but very few actually reach Fognini's level of ridiculous amusement.

Also, it's great because of the one British commentator (don't know his name, sorry) who pronounces his name "Fog-nin-ee" (pronounces the g and the short I sound in the second syllable).
