Fabio Fognini vs. Aljaz Bedene Head to Head
Fognini has dominated against him in the past winning 10 of the 11 games they have played. The most recent in Belgrade was easily won by Fognini.
Up and down for Fognini
Fabio Fognini isn’t having a great year as his usual woes of playing tennis up and down have been more low tennis this year than anything else. It’s obvious that his peak is far behind him, but the Italian should be able to play better tennis.
14-14 is not a good score and his ranking has dropped significantly to number 64 overall. Last week in Bastad he met an inspired Sebastian Baez who easily beat him in straight sets. The Argentinian finally qualified for the final. In doubles, Fognini played superbly with Simone Bolleli so the week went well overall.
He will be looking to right the ship a bit in Hamburg and he has a pretty solid draw. Bedene is a player a few weeks away from retirement and Fognini should be able to win easily. He’s topped it in the past by leading 10-1 in H2H matches and is usually the more talented player.
Fognini has played well on clay this year with an 11-10 record, but he needs a few wins to build that confidence.

Bedene on his way to retirement
Aljaz Bedene hasn’t played much tennis this year and that’s largely due to injuries. The Slovenian player has struggled with injuries over the past few months and has officially announced his retirement for later this year.
He will do it at home in the Davis Cup, so these events he attends are kind of a farewell tour for him. He has only played 11 games this year and is 4-7 overall. His four wins came on clay and he had a decent Roland Garros losing to Novak Djokovic.
Since then, there have only been two official matches and he has lost them both on grass. The last time he held a racket was last week when he played an exhibition against Djokovic in Bosnia. It’s clear that he doesn’t think about tennis anymore, but he can still win matches.
Don’t expect him to give up in this one, but it will be tricky.
Fognini v Bedene Prediction and Tip
They have played many times in the past and Fognini leads 10-1. It’s quite rare to see such domination in a tennis H2H but it is clear that Fognini has the upper hand here.
He should also win this one as Bedene is only weeks away from retirement and in theory Fabio should care more about this game. He definitely needs the win.
