Fabio Fognini Loses Racquet, Wins Point In Rio

The match between Thomaz Bellucci and Fabio Fognini was very emotional and funny on Monday night at the Rio Open presented by Claro. The Brazilian was up 7-5 4-0, then the Italian player cameback and on 6-5 40-30 he won the second set in a very crazy way: he lost the racquet, brought it from the ground and still won the point, taking it to a decider where he won 6-2. Here is the incredible point. In the second round on Wednesday, Fognini will face the American Tennys Sandgren.
