Fognini attacks Sinner: “Wrong not to go to the Olympics”

by admin

Fabio, returning from Indian Wells: “I’ve always said what I think, for better or for worse. I’m fine, but I no longer have any ranking targets.”

“If I look back, I see that I am almost at the end”. Heavy words from Fabio Fognini, number 34 in the world, who told himself in a radio broadcast: “If I have to take stock, I must say that I have achieved at least 90% of my dreams in the drawer. Young Italian tennis players? always said that, the more we are, the better. ”

As an expert and veteran of Italian tennis, Fabio also has his say on Jannik Sinner, who missed the Olympic appointment in Tokyo: “In my career I have often made mistakes and, when I have made a mistake, I have always done` mea culpa´. always said what I think, for better or for worse. For me Sinner was wrong not to go to the Olympics. Then, everyone makes his choices and must suffer the consequences. It is not for me to say if he is wrong, he surely has behind him a valuable team who advised him to act like this and he did so “.


To those who ask him about his outbursts, I always lie frequently: “Am I angry? In work I transform myself, because I try to do it in the best way and, if I don’t succeed, I get angry. Journalists have a strong power, that of paper and of the pen that, in this moment, has always prevailed over everything. I don’t want to argue, I no longer want and I don’t have time to keep up with this nonsense. Who knows me, knows how I am. I’m a guy who likes to be with friends. Obviously my family has priority over everything, I’m a quiet, lively and playful one. ”

The future

Fabio Fognini will soon become a father for the third time. His wife Flavia Pennetta, a candidate to enter the tennis Hall of Fame, will give birth in a couple of months. “I still see myself playing tennis. I have had confirmation in America that my level of play is there, I am physically well and I can play. The ranking is no longer a main objective. The results keep the fire burning inside me, because I know I can do it too. In terms of ranking and results I have no goals, but I still want to get back into the game and get a good result before saying goodbye. “
