Fognini reaches the quarters in Stuttgart

Seed no.1 Fabio Fognini starts his title defense in Stuttagart.

The Italian had no problems to dismiss Golubev in straight sets (64-4 6-4) to advance in what last year has been his breakthrough tournament “It’s special playing here. I won my first title here and it’s something I’ll remember for the rest of my life. I’m happy to be in the quarter-finals. I was feeling good on court.”

Next vs. Giraldo

Fabio will play world no. 34 Santiago Giraldo in the quarters. Head to head is 2-2.
