Fabio Fognini is the favorite in the upcoming match from the Australian Open. This will be the first time that these two players will play against each other. Fognini is the favorite and I think that his experience will help him against Herbert in this Grand Slam game. Even hard I expect a victory for the Italian even if we see 5 sets.
