Rafa on playing Fabio Fognini:

Tomorrow will be a tough match against Fognini, he beat me three times last year and it was up and down against him.

Fabio on playing Rafa:

I need some sort of miracle to beat him again.

Rafa is better than me at the moment.

Fabio eliminated Rafa in the third round of Barcelona last year, among his three wins over Rafa in 2015, including in a five-set match in the third round at the U.S. Open.

    Fabio playing possum, saying he may need some luck against RAFA today. Of course, as we know, he’s going to go for all his shots, throw tantrums and argue with someone to deflect his bad play or interrupt our guy.
    RAFA needs to be EXTRA focused today, and WE need to have loads of patience watching Fabio. It’s going to be tricky today for sure.

    CHOMP, CHOMP RAFA.

    RAFA fan forever.

  6. Fognini the Italian is a,,, how do I put it,, he’s a top 10 player when he’s serious about his own game, maybe even a top 5 player, but what ever is on his mind at the time is what guides him, maybe his argument last night, with his girl friend, or his room wasn’t cleaned to his satisfaction, what ever it is that eats at him is what determines his type of play for that particular game he’s about to play, could be up or could be down But if Rafa is on his game like he is now, it doesn’t matter what Fognini thinks or feels Rafa will beat him an get on to the “next up” please,,,
