Spanish veteran Tommy Robredo continued his recent resurgence by defeating Fabio Fognini 6-0 6-3 at the Croatia Open on Sunday.
A dominant first set saw the 31 year old administer a bagel within 18 minutes to the bewildered Italian who won only six points in the opening stanza.
Fognini rallied in the second set, breaking Robredo twice but had problems holding onto his own service game, as Robredo ran out the set relatively comfortabley to take it 6-3 and win his second tournament of the year.
“No money can buy this feeling,” said Robredo after the match. “I played a perfect match, did a great job. But in matches like this it is always important to win.”
