São Paulo, Brazil
Second Round of the 2017 Brasil Open will see the erratic Italian Fabio Fognini (42) face his compatriot Alessandro Giannessi (127). Giannessi have qualified into the event and managed to beat another Italian, Marco Cecchinato in straight sets in the first round. Giannessi have never won against a top 50 player in his career and is down 0-1 in the H2H against Fognini as well.
Fabio Fognini has good results from clay tournaments in South American and has reached the final on more then one occasion. He has won 17 of his last 19 games against other Italians, so it seems like he has a mental advantage on his countrymen. If he plays to his potential, this should be a very straightforward victory for the nutcase. MarathonBet will give us 1.33 times our money on Fognini and that is my bet for this match.
