Wow. Fognini is up 6-4, 5-0 on Rafa.

LOL Rafa avoids the bagel.

 

 

 

I wouldn’t bet on it, but it also wouldn’t surprise me if Fabio lost this match from 6-4, 5-0, 40-0 up.

 

OK, Lajovic-Fognini M1000 final it is.

That is true, but I’ve seen Ben Rothenberg make huge mistakes (like posting incorrect winners before matches end with scores) and not own up to it, even when called out for it. I don’t have a lot of faith in journalists admitting errors or jumping the gun, so it’s refreshing to me when they do.

Speaking of Rothenberg:

Can't remember the last time I really read anything written by Ben Rothenberg and his tweets I've already learned to take with a grain of salt.

Oof. I didn’t even think about that. Tennis is such a small world.

My guess is that neither Fognini nor Lajovic will be playing Barcelona or whichever tournament they were next scheduled to play.

Yup....the tourney is stacked though...with Sascha taking a wildcard. Most of the ones that were entered in MC are in Barcelona.

 

Not a Fabio fan but better than Nadal winning again.

Fabio can be a complete ass but he is a complete ass capable of playing some beautiful tennis sometimes.
