Singles – Final

[2] F. Fognini (ITA) d [1] J. del Potro (ARG) 64 62

 

Doubles – Final

[3] M. Arevalo (ESA) / M. Reyes-Varela (MEX) d T. Fritz (USA) / T. Kokkinakis (AUS) 64 64

 

The “Mexican Double” will have to wait till next year.

 

Italian Fabio Fognini stunned Juan Martin del Potro 6-4, 6-2 on Saturday to win the Abierto de Tenis Mifel presentado por Cinemex title in Los Cabos. It’s Fognini’s eighth ATP World Tour crown but his first on hard courts. The 31-year-old had previously triumphed only on clay.

 

But Fognini showed another level against Del Potro and added another accolade to what is quietly becoming one of his best years on tour. He’s won three ATP World Tour titles this season (Sao Paulo, Bastad), a career best, and on Monday, Fognini is projected to rise one spot in the ATP Rankings to No. 14, only one mark off his career-high of No. 13, which he last reached more than four years ago, in April 2014.

 

“It’s something strange because, of course, at the beginning of the week if you told me that we would be talking about titles… I am really happy, happy about this week, about my game. Of course it means a lot for me,” Fognini said.
