Fognini vs Nadal by Peter
Fabio Fognini is on 32nd place in the ATP rankings, in the first round at US Open he managed to win against Steve Johnson (47th place) with 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 and in the second round he managed to win against Pablo Cueva (40th place) with 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.
Rafael Nadal is on 8th place in the ATP rankings, in the first round at US Open he managed to win against Borna Coric (33th place) with 6-3, 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 and in the second round he managed to win against Diego Schwartzman (74th place) with 7-6, 6-3, 7-5.
Fabio Fognini performed very poor this year on hard surface, he won only 2 matches, both at US Open and he lost 10 matches.
Also Rafael Nadal performed poorly on hard surface comparing to his previous years.
Both players play the best tennis on clay surface, while hard surface is their second preferred surface.
I'm expecting a 5 sets games today, even if Rafael Nadal seems to be the favourite here I'm sure that Fabio Fognini will fight for his chance. Also Rafael Nadal didn't won previous matches in a categoric manner so for sure tonight it will be a disputed match.
