Completely unpredictable match like every Fognini match. He's known for understimating low ranked players and playing horrible against them. We'll see. His new coach Perlas should help.

I'm really torn here. Fabio has been to 6 previous SF's and lost in all of them:

Umag 2011, lost to Cilic in 2
Santiago 2011, lost to Robredo in 3 (called him Shitman after the match)
Stuttgart 2009, lost to Hanescu in 3 (beat Davydenko in QF)
Umag 2008, lost to Verdasco in 2
Warsaw 2008, lost Davydenko in 2
Costa Do Sauipe 2008, lost to Almagro in 2

I actually like Fognini even though his on court behavior is really silly at times. He has a really nice game on clay.

Still, this is a great opportunity for Balazs and would really help his ranking. So either way I will be satisfied.

All of the players he lost to are good players though....

The Fog should make his first ever final because he'd be the heavy favorite, unlike every other time he was in the semis.

So of course I pick Balazs in 3.

Who the hell is Balasz? The guy is so much of a mug, even wikipedia doesn't have a page on him

I think I've mostly forgiven Fognini for his fake MTO at RG last year, he's just too hard to dislike... but still, gotta pull for Balazs here

And people complain about the US hardcourt series in February. This is terrible, can they both lose? Hope Balazs can win I guess to continue his dream week.
