All his victories have been in Valencia, having advanced from the qualifiers by beating Yuichi Sugita with 6-4 6-1. The one defeat was versus Gilles Muller with 6-3 6-7(2) 6-1 in the first round of the ATP Stockholm after yet again advancing from the qualifiers.
Fabio Fognini will be coming into this game with 3 victories and 2 defeats in his latest 5 matches. The world no. 22nd player has yet to win a title this year and has looked rather shaky in his performances.

The vikings prediction for this fixture is that Fabio Fognini wins it in 3 sets. Fognini who has had quite a rough year on the ATP singles has qualified for the ATP Finals London doubles with Simon Bolleli and this should bring both motivation for this tournament aswell as confidence in his singles play. However Mischa Zverev has shown great determination advancing from several qualifiers and he´s sure to come into this match with great focus but Fognini is a hard opponent to best and especially when he will be a lot more rested, not having to go through the qualifiers and having a “bye” in the first round. Looking at the statistics for Zverev’s losses in the main draws it´s clear that he ´s able to put up resistance against good tennis players and his defeats have all ended in over 22 games. Some interesting side-picks for this fixture is “Will the game reach a tiebreak” and the over 2.5 sets pick.
