Rome Open 2022: Dominic Thiem vs. Fabio Fognini Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 Rome Open as Dominic Thiem takes on Fabio Fognini in the first round on Monday, May 9th, 2022.

Will Dominic Thiem get his first win post-injury? Or will Fabio Fognini extend the Austrian’s wait? The Rome Open has thrown up another enticing first-round match between the home favorite and the 2020 US Open champion. Who will prevail?

Since his return to the tour, Dominic Thiem has not had a lot of joy. Thiem, who missed competitive tennis for over half a year due to a wrist injury, has lost in the first round in each of his last four tournaments including the Madrid Open this past week. Defeat to Andy Murray in the Spanish capital was a hammer blow in his bid to return to the upper echelons of the game, prompting the Briton to deliver an encouraging message across the net. There is no doubt that Thiem will get there in the end but how long can his patience last? The Austrian has received another challenging opener at the Rome Open where he is due to face Fabio Fognini.

It is never a dull moment when Fabio Foginini is on the court and particularly at the Rome Open where he feeds on the crowd’s raucous support. The home favorite, however, has not been at his vintage best in each of his last two visits to the ForoItalico, losing to Ugo Humbert in 2020 and Kei Nishikori last season. Fognini owns a victory over Dominic Thiem in these parts when the Austrian power hitter was at the top of his game. So can the enigmatic Italian make amends from his Madrid disappointment?

Dominic Thiem leads Fabio Fognini 3-1 in their head-to-head. As mentioned, Fognini’s solitary win over the Austrian came in Rome four years ago when he defeated the former World No. 3 in three sets. Thiem’s comeback is yet to take shape despite working so hard to return to the tour. While consistency is Fognini’s biggest drawback, he should be the favorite to advance in Monday’s meeting.
