Thanasi Kokkinakis v Fabio Fognini Head to Head

The pair have played each other once before on the hard courts of Cincinnati last year, Kokkinakis winning in three sets.

Kokkinakis’ Second Clay Court Match This Year

Kokkinakis shares the reputation with some of country’s wines of not travelling well.

Certainly he has enjoyed his best results on home soil, winning his first senior singles tournament in Adelaide in January, and, a few weeks later, going on to win the Australian Open doubles’ title with Nick Kyrgios.

Results have been harder to come by since then, although he reached a creditable fourth round in Miami, before losing to Alexander Zverev.

Not feeling comfortable on the surface, he chose to give the first part of the European clay court circuit a miss, and, when he did make his reappearance, lost in the first round of qualification in Rome.

This will be only his second match of the year on clay.

2017 Winner Fognini Takes to Court

Fognini won the tournament in Geneva in 2017, one of nine senior titles he has won, the most recent and the most prestigious of those being the 2019 Monte Carlo Masters.

The clay court specialist – he once famously wished that the grass of Wimbledon could be blown up! – has been fighting to find his best form for several years now, but, having struggled in the first part of the season, a run to the semi-finals in Belgrade was most welcome, and hinted that better things may be in store.

However, he was beaten in the first round in Madrid and then, last week, in Rome, in his home event, he lost the all-Italian second round clash with Jannik Sinner, although he did take the younger, and higher ranked man, to three sets.

Kokkinakis v Fognini Prediction and Tip

Whilst Kokkinakis won their only previous match between the two last year, that was on a  hard court, whereas this meeting will be on the Italian’s favourite surface of clay. That alone should be more than enough to tilt the balance in his favour.
