This is the next Berdych-Anderson of the tour.

He will, this time. Fognini will take this match seriously for a change.

I think both have raised their level playing each other, so I expect a high quality match with 2 TBs. Grigor in 3.

Well, both players know exactly what to expect, since they already played it twice during this clay season.

The Fogmeister has the advantage of playing at home (possibly at night with a packed crowd, with also Federer in the mix for the Wednesday's night match), but I don't know if this is actually an advantage. He usually gets nervous under pressure and also Hotshotmitrov tends to play near his best in front of packed crowds.

Hopefully both play like in the 3rd set of Madrid, cause that was the best set of clay tennis of the year so far.

Fognini never reached R16 in Rome and Dull is too far behind in the draw, so I think most likely Dimitrov will win another tight match.

On paper it's the place where Fabio would have the best head start - slowish clay and home crowd.

But it would still depend on him to capitalize.

Last year's semi finalist, against the guy who never made it past second round, with a 2-0 H2H in last month.

Fabio seems to be more nervous with the crowd's expectation toward him, so this won't help much.

Grigor in 2

This is a tight one. The fog almost beat him in Madrid he was dictating everything and on control of the match. Hopefully with the help of the crowd fognini will take this in 3. Also, the fog never reached Rome's 3rd round before (8 attempts, but tomorrow everything change :) This is the match of the day hopefully it'll be as good as it is on paper.

Fognini is making some of the best back hand shots (barely clearing the net) that I have seen in tennis this year on clay. This is a great match vs Dimitrov. But my favorite is Fognini.

I think we have a contemporary rivalry here. And a good one that will last their entire careers. These two want to beat on each other.

Akin to Raonic-Nishikori

Fascinating matchup never fails to provide some form of entertainment.
