1/32 final of Roland Garros and an interesting game is waiting for us between Fabio Fognini and Federico Delbonis. Both of the players prefer clay over any other ground. Most of their games played exactly on this type of court. To have more insights on this Fabio Fognini vs Federico Delbonis ATP match please check out the preview below.
Fabio is 12th in ATP rankings. He is currently on a great 11 wins and only 2 losses start of the season. Fognini lost only to Tsitsipas and Thiem this year on clay. It shows how impressive this guy can play on this specific ground. Fognini dropped out of this tournament in R16 last year with a loss to Marin Cilic in 5 sets. A lot of questions were asked about his health and a possible surgery but Fabio decided to play through it and does it well none the less.
Overall as a player, he can beat anyone on any day but losing his mind over some bad plays or other things plays a big role in his game as well. If Fabio keeps his cool and shows us the tennis he is capable of he might get to a much higher stage than past few years.
Delbonis is one of the true clayers as plays really solid tennis on this ground while struggling to beat much lower ranked players on other ones. Currently 75th in the world but don’t get mistaken by this rank – he is capable of much more. Since the tournament in Miami Delbonis won 8 matches and only lost 3. He is a good form and proved that in the first game of French Open by beating Garcia-Lopez in 4 sets. Delbonis differently from Fognini loves to play controlled tennis with long rallies and forcing enemies mistakes. If he manages to control the pace of the game and slow Fognini down from attacking the match might be a really close one.
