Dimitrov vs Fognini by Bobo95

Another ATP semifinal for me, in which I go with the underdog


Dimitrov will face Fognini in this match and clearly the odds see Dimitrov as a favourite. The main reason of the low odd in favour of Dimitrov is the ATP ranking where Dimitrov is in top 10 (8th ranked) and Fognini just 28th. This month they both have won tons of matches and have lost only two (Dimitrov both of them against Nadal, while Fognini one against Nadal and one against the next top player Zverev).


Dimitrov is delivering some good tennis games recently, hittings winners and also finding consistency in serve, but the thing is that he has won against some pretty defensive and safe players. What does it mean safe? Safe player in tennis is the definiton of players who dont really try to hit winners, or hit diagonal, drop or volley. They are players who just pass the pall on the other side safe and in the same direction without changing it, and wait until the opponent makes any mistake. Dimitrov has managed to dominate these kind of players till now.


But Fognini is totally the opposite. A so called wasted talent, whose technique and hard hitting could have brought him why not to the top 5. But his main enemy is himself. He loses his temper and is not consistent. But concerning the game when he's calm, is just wonderful. He changes the direction of the ball every 3-4 rallies, tries all the time to hit winners and finds the edges of the field really well. I think he's finding consistency recently having also achieved a tournament final back in September.


When coming to the temper and consistency, I think they both have problems. Dimitrov is really incosistent just like Fognini.


Today I excpect a wonderful tennis match, and I think that Fognini's style will be a big problem for Dimitrov.


And the odd 4.0 for Fognini is totally not fitting this match in my opinion.


So Fognini to win!pin
