An all-Italian affair in round one between Fabio Fognini and Andreas Seppi ensures there will be at least one representative of the country in round two, with Fognini the heavy favourite to advance. Fognini enters the tournament at a career high ranking of 11 but is actually seeded 9th in the tournament.

Fabio Fognini and Andreas Seppi have met eight times. They are currently tied at 4-4 on head-to-head, but remarkably it is Fognini who has won the last four matches. World No.66 Seppi last beat his countryman in 2010. In their eight meetings, only one match was in a Grand Slam tournament, which happened at the 2017 French Open with Fognini winning in straight sets.
Fognini Will Be A Dark Horse This Fortnight
Fabio Fognini overcame a terrible start to 2019 to become one of the surprise contenders at the French Open this year. Fognini had arrived in Monte Carlo in mid-April in the worst form of his career having suffered five first round exits in the first quarter of the year. Confidence was at all-time low and he was still feeling the effects of elbow and ankle pain.

But during the his one-week stay at the Principality, Fognini fought through adversity. He came back from the dead in his first match in Monte Carlo against Andrey Rublev and he never looked back since then.
Seppi is a veteran of the tour, once finding himself inside the top 20. Now outside the top 60, he continues to slide and comes into the tournament on a nine match losing streak, dating back to Delray Beach in February. That includes losses in three straight weeks across Madrid, Rome and Geneva to Gael Monfils, Roberto Bautista Agut and Hugo Dellien respectively.
Fognini remains an enigma but might be on the verge of figuring it all out, as he seeks to make the top 10 for the first time in his career. That will be in some part down to his Monte Carlo Masters title, where he beat Alexander Zverev and Rafael Nadal as part of a great run for his first Masters 1000 title. He lost at the same stage in both Madrid and Rome but defeats to Dominic Thiem and Stefanos Tsitsipas are no shame for the Italian.
Somewhat surprisingly, the pair are split down the middle at 5-5 in their 10 career matches. Seppi won the first 5 but Fognini has been on the winning side ever since and should make it six in a row with his and Seppi’s careers going in opposite directions.
