When Fabio Fognini became the first Italian to win 400 matches on the major circuit, he opened up about his future in tennis and his anxieties about the upcoming stretch.
“After all the victories, good matches, bad matches, and tournaments I have won, I can say that I am approaching the final part of my career, and the Covid-19 pandemic and physical problems have made it the most difficult period.
When the time comes, I will decide to leave everything behind and devote myself completely to my family, but right now, my greatest dream is to get back to having fun: running without feeling pain and fighting until the very end “told the official ATP website, the Ligurian.
What Binaghi thinks of Fabio Fognini‘s chances in the future.
During the press conference to announce the new ATP 250 tournament in Florence (to be held from October 10 to 16), FIT President Angelo Binaghi reflected on Fognini‘s words and discussed the potential of the Italian men’s movement.
When asked by Sportface to describe Italian tennis without Fabio Fognini, Binaghi said, “I don’t even want to think about it.” Binaghi’s managerial experience coincided with Fognini‘s tennis career.
“This year’s crop of Italian tennis players, led by the phenomenon that is Matteo Berrettini and the steadily improving Jannik Sinner, makes for an exciting start to the tournaments in Florence and Naples.
Lorenzo Musetti made it to the quarterfinals in Hamburg, which is a good result; the future performances of Berrettini, Sinner, Lorezno Sonego, and Fognini are highly anticipated “.
Florence isn’t the only ATP 250 tournament in Italy, though. Naples Tennis Club will host some of the world’s top tennis players in a tournament that will replace the VTB Kremlin Cup in Moscow.
