Fognini overcomes array of antics
PARIS -- They were standing at Court Suzanne Lenglen, vigorously applauding, screaming their congratulations, and -- after 4 hours, 22 minutes of zany, sometimes dark comedy -- all Fabio Fognini could do was shrug and extend his arms, palms up.
Fabio. The name says it all. It was the moment of his tennis life, and his response was reminiscent of Michael Jordan's famous, hey-what-can-I-say moment after he nailed his sixth 3-pointer in a half against Portland in the 1992 NBA finals.
