Fabio Fognini will meet with Joao Sousa in the quarter-finals of the ATP tournament in Umag.
In this match I will give a better chances to Fognini. He is certainly a better player than Sousa. Clay is his favorite surface and in the last 2 years he had a lot of success in this tournament. Last year he reached the semifinals, while in 2013 he reached the finals. So he will lose a lot of points if you lose today.
He played very well in the first 2 rounds, defeated Dzumhur and Vesely , both in 2 sets and I think that he will continue to play well today. He have met only once with Sousa so far, it was last year in Monte Carlo and he won that match in 3 sets so I think he is a lot closer to win today again .
