If he actually starts caring about tennis he will be a top 10 player

You're smoking funny stuff with that comment. The Fog is entertaining, crazy, a bit silly, likes to tank now and then but he's not top 10 potential.

He can be a top 20 player though I think. he is still just 24 and around the top 50, so many players like this have the chance to break in the top 20 at some point if they get their game together for 6 months or more. Fognini has decent results on grass and hard courts too so has the chance.

I don't know why he wouldn't be top 10 if he wanted; these days anyone with a bit of good will enters it.

Fabio is too focused on his physical appearance though.

Thats true, some of the recent top 10 players are hardly more talented than Fabio.

that didnt stop verdasco from getting there, though.

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.

Default Re: Fabio Fognini: The Most Interesting Tennis Player in the World

i don't think his name is big enough to appear on shows, but you can recognize a vain boy loving his looks very briefly, they just have this vibe not every handsome player (or a handsome man, in general) has it

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

He's entertaining on court that's for sure.

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.

He has an insane record this year. Before RG, only 28% of his matches have been decided in straights. Thats the Fognini trademark, tanking sets all over the world. Most of his matches are seen as 50/50 depending if Fabio shows up or not

Now that Giraldo is out it's gonna be tough to stop the Fog at RG Making Great Grass Lord look like an amateur out there and he will eat Montanes alive next round. From there it gets a little tougher but his draw is pretty kind. About time Italy had a new RG champ
