Fabio Fognini (ITA) vs Andrej Martin (SVK) H2H
This match is a great story for Martin (no relation) who has battled through many challenger events in his career. He has banked at least 150 ATP ranking points. With a win, he will add 100 more points to that total. He is a capable player who competes well. Still, Fognini has a lot of firepower. He should beat Andrej Martin. I am not sure he will because Fognini’s willingness to compete is questionable. That may be Martin’s only edge entering the match, but it is not a small one. If Martin is not too nervous and plays as though he would crawl over broken glass to win this title and 250 ranking points, he will have a chance. If Fognini plays like a good frontrunner and imposes his experience, Fabio should win.
My Prediction: Fabio Fognini d. Andrej Martin: 6-2, 6-4 – Fognini has to be the pick as the match seems to be on his racquet.
