*Wish I could have posted sooner…In a few hours Tommy Robredo will take the stage for the final in Umag. He is bidding for his 2nd title of the year. The Spaniard will take on Fabio Fognini in which he leads a 3-1 H2H. Tommy has won all those meetings on clay. However the Italian is have an amazing past month. In fact [Fognini] will attempt to make it a tri-fecta of titles (as he has won in Sttutgart and Hamburg).
Good luck to Tommy! I hope he plays well tomorrow. It’s going to be tricky. I’ve been watching Fognini play recently and I’m pretty impressed with some of the shots he’s hitting. Tommy is going to have play his top-notch on Sunday to beat his opponent.
I realize that Feli lost out in his semis in a close match against Robin Haase. I had liked his chances to get into the finals in Gstaad. It wasn’t meant to be, but he’s been playing better this year. He tends to do well on hardcourts in which that season is around the corner-so let’s see!
