Eight-time champion Rafael Nadal will face 13th-seeded Fabio Fognini in the third round of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell. Our champ leads head-to-head series 4-1. Fabio’s only win over Rafa came in their last meeting, two months ago on clay in Rio de Janeiro.
Date: April 23, 2015
Rafa: “Fognini is extremely fast and makes difficult things look so easy. He can play at such a high level but then sometimes not so much….I guess he goes through some ups and downs, but either way he is such a tough rival given the fact he already beat me.”
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
