Do you know which version of Don Fabio will turn up?
The Fog will take the first set 6-3 and then proceed to lose the other 2 sets 6-1,6-1.This really could happen.
Rafa in 2 because the thought of Zverev vulturing another title makes me sick to my stomach.
Depends which Fognini shows up
The Fog in GOATnini mode to take this one.
Fog will get decked, unfortunately.
Fabster will lose badly to Nadal tomorrow only to rise from the ashes and make the final of Wimbledon, which he will lose 6-7, 6-7, 6-1, 7-6, 10-8 to this man. You read it here first!
Gorgeous or "more gorgeous" are your picks.
They will start at 12 pm
don fabio to save tennis from the topspin plague
Lol but we need RAFA to save us from Z, I don’t like it but beggars can’t be choosers.
Fog to push Ned.
Wow. Don Fabio leads Don Rafael 9 to 4 in the poll.
Don Rafa will make an offer Don Fabio cannot refuse: "Go home to sleep with Flavia by loosing easy or sleep with the fish."
"Fabio’s a great player, a big talent and he’s playing at home, so it will be a tough one,” Nadal said.
“We’ll see how things go and I hope to be ready for it.”
If Fog can be inspired, we could have a fun match.
But Nadal is too big, too powerful, too dominating and just looking to stomp out the competition before RG. I expect a straight set win for Nadal, no matter what version of Fognini turns up.
or simply, Don Rafa will make forehands and backhands Don Fabio cannot return.
Foggy has what it takes but I fear we will not see this tomorrow, 6 games max.
He might show something considering he's in Italy. Seems he's a little more motivated by the looks of it.
Wrong, Hitman. If nude Fognini shows up for the coin toss tomorrow, Rafa'll be like a deer caught in the headlights. Nude Fog beats anyone on any surface, 24/7, eight days a week.
Nadal might tank against Fog to avoid Djoko semi/Zverev final and giving them any kind of confidence.
Least talented player in 2.
Realistically speaking the match is on Fabious racquet but does he care enough to win?
Wishful thinking at its peak
Nadal has lost his last 3 Rome quarterfinals...
Oh come on! Shapavolov in the final would be fantastic. Why do you want Fog to go that far???
He won the 9 previous quarters that he played there though
Nadal will win, but everybody goes home a loser against the Fog. By far the coolest man on the tour.
I am hoping for the Velvet Fog to roll in.
But as the scripture* tells us:
"-Feareth I, the foghorn shalt soundeth meakly. For the Dragon of Dirt is to vanquish him fully and all hope will be lost. "
Nadal in straights.
* Before the meeting in Nicaea
Nadal, Federer, Djokovic....can come away winning 30 slams each, breaking all the records, and put their names on all the trophies.
But they all know, deep down, that the Fog could of fathered their children.
His butt is practically in my face, so I'm not going to "like" this, but you made me laugh.
The picture. His butt jumped right out, right off the screen.
A bit more of Foggy than I'm comfortable looking at, though he is obviously a very good-looking guy.
"Thiem is a tough opponent. I have to play great and be ready."
Loses to Thiem.
"When he beats me three times in a row, then we can say he's a tough opponent."
Nadal at his humble best.
Where are the bull fans? No one is watching? The match has started.
amazing drop volley by THE BIG SHOW
I hate when Koenig comment Nadal matches. His perspective is from inside Nadal's brain, it seems. Always about what Rafa should do...
Pls Fog, keep it together!
Fabio has ripped a few. His timing is on.
Nice short CC backhands from Fabio. Almost Davydenko-like.
A very fine match up, indeed
Nice to see Nadal applaud the Fog.
Of course that is easier to do when you're 40-15 up but still.
It must be very tiring to grunt so loud and so long on each shot
THE BIG SHOW breaks.
Insane get from Nadal, how is that even possible.
Fabio playing great, still gets broken.
Exactly, it was mind-blowing.
Very impressive court coverage from the Bull. Fognini very vulnerable to grinding it seems.
