Fabio Fognini played two five-set matches at AO. On January 24, as part of the third round, he will play with Guido Pella. Does the Italian tennis player have the strength for the upcoming meeting? – Read in our prediction.
For Peglia, the current Australian Open is going on better than last year, where he took off in the first round of the competition. In the current AO draw, the Argentine tennis player has already overcome two laps. In the first, he figured out three sets with John-Patrick Smith (6-3, 7-5, 6-4), and in the second, he defeated the French tennis player Gregoire Barrera (6-1, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3).
The starting matches with the participation of Fognini at the Australian Open turned out to be five-set. In the first round, the Italian defeated Railay Opelka (3-6, 6-7, 6-4, 6-4, 7-6), and in the second round, he beat Jordan Thompson (7-6, 6-1, 3-6 4-6, 7-6). In total, Fognini spent about eight hours on the court, which, of course, could affect his game in future meetings.
