Fognini vs Robredo by Catalonec
Simple, I must go back to back on Fognini, bealiving that he is able to pass July without defeat, bealive that is able to win 3rd straight title overall, bealive that should be able to menage best possible effort in this great finally.
The Italian is on fire, after no titles in the carrier, now have two straight and is in position to get 3rd one. IMO, at this moment is better player from Robredo in every sense. Great body shape, nice runner, nice improvement on backhand side, great baseline shoots. Have all the elements for a clay game. Great motivation, hugh confidence. This abilities should cause advantage for sure. Lost only 3 sets so far, one on each tournament. Yestarday was his craziest match of his carrier, it’s better to not mantion. If I skip the stupid mistakes, overall Fabio showed great tennis.
While, the old and experienced clay court Spanish had nice tournament so far. After two fast defeats in Bastad and Hamburg in the first rounds, finaly find his balance on the court. The only problems had yesterday over Seppi, was to close to lose and even closer to win the game but at the end was the lucky winner. This is the final game, Robredo knows that very well and will try to put extra effort on. But, I had the chances to watch the games in Bastad and Hamburg, at those first rounds the Spanish showed more weakness than advantages in his game. Is not the old good one, is still a good player but for me, not quite enough to left the trophy here.
Even Robredo is leaging on H2H, I give a advantage on Italian side. Expect Fognini to repeat the nice performance.
