Fabio Fognini becomes a dad after wife Flavia Penneta gave birth to son Federico

Flavia Pennetta and husband Fabio Fognini have announced the arrival of their baby boy on Twitter: "Fabio and I are happy to share with you the birth of our son Federico."



A few days ago Pennetta said, "Fabio sends me a thousand messages, cares, is afraid not to arrive in time for birth and would not hesitate to leave anything but not miss the appointment with this extraordinary event. I will give birth naturally. If all is well, I plan to take the epidural to enjoy the moment without being stunned by the pain. I hope that everything goes fine, I've been lucky so far, pregnancy has been wonderful aside from some normall discomfort between the second and the third month."

Congratulations!!

An Interview With: Fabio Fognini (Round 3)
Friday, September 04, 2015

Q. 70 winners. It sounds crazy.

FABIO FOGNINI: Well, with Rafa you have to try that, because otherwise if you run -- he start running at the beginning and you finish at the end of the week. It's not easy. Right now I can't tell you something more because was something incredible that I did today, I think. Is a really special win about the No. 1 on clay and he won two times here. So really happy.

Q. What was the key to the match today for you?

FABIO FOGNINI: Well, I was starting to feel the ball really good, believe me. I lost that first set 6-3, but I was say in my mind, Okay, let's try, let's keeping working; do your tennis. I went down a break. After come back on 4-4, I went 40-Love on that game and I lost incredible game. So was my fault. Even if I come back from break down, I was say, Okay, let's try. But two sets to zero against Rafa, maybe you have to go to Lourdes. I went there tonight and everything was in a perfect way.

Q. You have beaten Rafa two times this year. Does it give you any confidence or belief?

Fognini Upsets Nadal In Barcelona

Fognini Upsets Nadal In Barcelona

Fabio Fognini defeated Rafael Nadal 6-4 7-6 and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell where he will face Pablo Andujar, a 6-3, 6-4 winner over fifth seed Feliciano Lopez.

Fognini had also beaten Nadal in the Rio de Janeiro semi-finals in February.

The Italian continually pressed for a break in the opener. Although he overcooked a forehand on his first set point opportunity on Nadal’s serve at 4-5, 30/40, he clinched his second chance with a forehand volley winner. It silenced the crowd.

There were three breaks of serve in the first four games of the second set, which saw Nadal take a 3-1 lead. But Fognini maintained his composure to fight back. He took a 6/3 lead in the tie-break, but Nadal recovered to 6/6 before mis-timing a forehand to gift his opponent a fourth match point.
