Thomas Fabbiano believes that Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal manage to sort of intimidate most of the opponents when it comes to play an official match. 'The top three, four players in the world win the match already in the locker room, because they have a strong personality and they have been winning the Grand Slams in the last 15 years', admitted Fabbiano speaking to Tennis World USA.
'Personality plays a huge factor before heading into the court, no doubt about it.' Analyzing his 2018 season, last year he had said: 'I started with my career-high ranking and so I played all the ATP tournaments, which was new to me.
I lost too many matches, my confidence and my shape dropped and I lost energies. Heading into Wimbledon I had won just two grass-court matches in the three previous tournaments, then I went through the qualies and I won two main draw matches.
It was a good thing but grass is a particular surface and I did not bring that strength with myself on hard. At the end of the year I went to play some Challengers so that I could earn the points to stay close to the top 100 and play the Australian Open.'
Fabbiano believes she would beat the female 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams. Speaking to Tennis World USA, Fabbiano said: 'I played with some girls and when you start playing points you see the difference is there.
I think I would win 6-3 6-2.' Fabbiano said he plans to compete in the "new" Davis Cup next year: 'Playing for Italy is always a good thing, there are six or seven players, including me, who have the chances to go in India (in February) and if we win we to Madrid in November.
I heard some huge money is involved, I do not know how it will be split, probably depending on players competing per each team. We as players all agree on doing our best for a country that deserves to be at the top.'
