Fabio Fognini

Madrid, Spain

Press Conference

F. FOGNINI/C. Taberner

7-6, 2-6, 6-3

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. A lot of momentum shifts in that match. How were you able to come back after losing the second set? I would love to get your thoughts on your next round against Matteo Berrettini.

FABIO FOGNINI: Well, I was saying before that it's always difficult first match because, I mean, it was coming from quallie. I know what tough match. He beat two really good guy. Nothing else. I was try to be focus on my game. Here it's quite different from normal tournament because it's a bit of altitude. You should adapt your game.

Was not my best day, if you talking about tennis. I'm happy because I was staying there, even if I was not feeling really good. I move on and have another opportunity to play.

Q. Thoughts playing against Berrettini next round?

FABIO FOGNINI: Well, is going to be for sure a tough match. At the moment I'm not any more the better ranking. As we play probably five years ago, well, I don't remember. Is going to be high up, good match for sure. I mean, for the people, they have a chance to come again and watch us playing.

Second thing, I mean, nothing to say. We know each other. As I say before, it's interesting because now he have everything to lose, I have nothing to lose because of course I'm not in the highest ranking any more.

I'm lucky, first of all, because I turn 34 really soon. Physically, of course, every day I have something different to treat. He's coming, is really young, and is better ranking.

For me is going to be an interesting match. Hopefully I play great tennis, better than today. Well, we see. I'm really, as I can say, calm. Nothing to say about the match on tomorrow. I repeat, hopefully it's going to be really good match.
