Italy’s No. 2 tennis player Fabio Fognini is known for his candid behavior. From racquet-smashing to his love affair with Flavia Pennetta, the 28-year-old has been in the headlines more often that not. And this time is no different, as he opens up on his ‘most feared’ opponents.

In an interview with The Luxer, the 28th-ranked Fognini divulged that he considers the ‘Big Three’ –comprising of tennis superstars Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal – as the most feared players standing at the other side of the net.

Opponent Won Lost
Roger Federer 0 3
Novak Djokovic 0 7
Rafael Nadal 3 5

Meanwhile, Fognini has had a miserable outing this season and is yet to pull off his first ATP title of the year. With a shoddy record of 26-24 in 2015, the Italian’s best appearance came in as the runner-up in Rio de Janerio (lost to David Ferrer) and Hamburg (lost to Rafael Nadal).
