A mighty Stan Wawrinka and a fully concentrated Fabio Fognini: started under the rain, Wednesday’s Banque Eric Sturdza Geneva Open tournament ended in climax with the qualification for the quarter-finals of the two top seeds.
Fabio Fognini won 6-7 (5) 6-2 6-2 against Noah Rubin. The Italian was able to make a perfect recovery after losing the first set. With this determination, he made it clear that he had come to Geneva with the sole aim of winning the tournament. Therefore, he intends to take another step towards this pursuit this Thursday against Tennys Sandgren.
Stan Wawrinka entered the court at 9:14 p.m. and was able to swiftly find his way back to victory after a long wait of 103 days. This 6-3 6-4 win over Jared Donaldson is the ninth in a row that the double defending champion has picked up on the Eaux-Vives soil. We are hoping for the tenth this Thursday against Marton Fucsovics. “It’s been a long time since I’ve played two games in a row,” said Stan Wawrinka. We’ll see how I handle this second game in less than 24 hours.”
