Fognini Dispatches Mayer in Vina del Mar

Fabio Fognini

Fabio Fognini clinched his third career title and first of 2014 in a comfortable straight sets win over Leonardo Mayer at the Royal Guard Open, Vina del Mar, Chile.

The 6-2, 6-4 scoreline was secured on the back of a strong service game with Mayer only winning seven points against the Italian’s serve.

Fognini raced to a 4-0 lead in the first set and Mayer, who was playing his first tour final, was never able to recover. He was broken again in the third game of the second set as Fognini stormed toward the title.

Fognini squandered two match points in the ninth game, but it proved to be a short-lived respite for his Argentine opponent as victory was sealed in the following game.
