Fognini vs Albot (By: Iniestaone)
Second round from ATP Indian Wells between Fognini (#17) and Albot (#53)
I think its time for Albot's winning streak to come to an end. He now has eight wins in a row after winning Delray Beach and qualifying for Indian Wells. In the quals he defeated Krueger and Lacko and he took out Copil in the first round in IW. He is a very solid allround player but I feel like a Fognini who plays without pressure will be a bad matchup for him, Fognini doesn't allow his opponents to control the tempo of the rallies and from what I've seen from Albot he thrives when he can do that from the baseline. Fognini has the type of winning shot that can cause a lot of trouble for Albot here and he hasn't faced a player like that since Kyrgios during this winning streak
Fognini is in bad form at the moment, he lost all three clay court matches in South America. Its always risky to bet on him weather or not he is in good form or not and its something I rarely do but this time I am backing him to take out an Albot who in my opinion is playing above his capacity.
Fognini is also playing the doubles here in Indian Wells with Djokovic and it indicates to me that he is taking Indian Wells seriously. He has produced a lot better results here in the past than Albot has and he has won their only head to head match which was five months ago in Beijing on hardcourt
