Del Potro, Fognini advance to Mifel final

Share

Italian Fabio Fognini stunned Juan Martin del Potro 6-4, 6-2 on Saturday to win the Abierto de Tenis Mifel presentado por Cinemex in Los Cabos.

Del Potro won for the third straight night in the hard-court event after a rest break following a five-set loss to Rafael Nadal in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

Many wondered whether the British No.2 Norrie was going to be able to live with the Italian in the baseline exchanges, and from the beginning, Norrie was doing a good job of it, working his left-handed forehand to perfection and believing in his game, but Fognini really elevated his level in the 3rd game, where he broke for the first time with a sequence of attractive defensive points, which unsettled Norrie from the baseline.

Howell were the names given to the black, Labrador retreiver-mixes, the Canadian Press reported. The island where they were found is about 25 minutes by boat from the nearest inhabitants.

The second saw Norrie break the Frenchman twice in a row before winning the final game to love to set up an encounter with Fabio Fognini, who is seeded second.

The world No. 4 had a chance to serve out the contest in the 10th game, but he got broken for the second time in the match partly due to a costly double fault and the second set came down to a tie-breaker. He used his forehand to push del Potro behind the baseline.

"It was a good fight from him. He took all the chances to win, and I think he's a good victor of the tournament".

Zhing was hospitalized with visible injuries to her face and body, and Thomas refused medical attention, according to police. She was later released on her own recognizance following a hearing in Brooklyn Criminal Court, cops said.

"Unfortunately, I couldn't play my best tennis in the final", Del Potro said afterward. Fognini returned everything in play and took his chances with Del Potro's second serve, winning 71 per cent of those points (15/21).

The Italian broke Norrie's serve four times on Friday night and has racked up 13 service breaks in three matches at this year's Los Cabos Open. Giron, ranked outside the top 300, gave a good account of himself but ultimately could not match del Potro's power, losing 5-7 3-6.

"It's fantastic... He's one of the best players..."
