ATP Rome: Fabio Fognini on the court with his son moves the crowd

The Italian Open so far have been a real success for Fabio Fognini. The Italian tennis player who had struggled to ring together a series of consecutive results this year achieved his second consecutive victory in Rome. Fognini, after winning his debut against Andy Murray in three sets, comfortably defeated No.

30 seed Miomir Kecmanovic in straight sets 6-3 7-6 in a packed Pietrangeli to incite the Italian. The most beautiful scene of the match valid for the second round against the Serbian took place at the end of the match when Fognini's son came down the court to go and hug his father.

Moments of great tenderness between them and which served to best seal this day.

In the third round Fognini will have to dramatically raise the level against Holger Rune to achieve what would be such a prestigious goal.

There has already been a precedent between the two in the 2022 edition of Montreal in which I saw the Canadian triumph against the Italian. Before his second round in Rome, the Ligurian explained why he chose this emoticon "Winning in Rome against a great tennis player like Murray is always special," said Fognini to the ATP.

He also added: "I repeat: I am really happy. It will be important to recover well from a physical point of view, but I will try to enjoy this victory. I was playing well at the start of the clay season, then I got injured at the Estoril tournament.

I wanted to play Roma, but honestly I don't feel 100%." Here is the video posted on the Tennis TV instagram page

There were no problems at the debut at this edition of the Internazionali d'Italia for Jannik Sinner.

The blue tennis player won the first match, in the second round, beating the Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis: 6-1, 6-4 was the final result.
