Fabio Fognini takes title in Los Cabos Open

Cameron Norrie

The "Mexican Double" will have to wait till next year.

Italian Fabio Fognini stunned Juan Martin del Potro 6-4, 6-2 on Saturday to win the Abierto de Tenis Mifel presentado por Cinemex in Los Cabos.

Norrie, who was looking to make it into a first ever tour-level final, did momentarily get the break back at 3-3 as Fognini's mental application did wander, but each and every time that Fognini stepped his foot on the accelerator, it was hard to see Norrie finding a way back into the match.

He was also ordered to pay US$3700 to the Hollywood Historic Trust and $700 to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for the damage. The star recognized Trump for his work on the TV reality show 'The Apprentice .' It has been repaired.


The 21-year-old defending champion did not face a single break point as he overcame his Greek opponent 6-2 6-4 in an hour and 28 minutes.

It is the 31-year-old Fognini's eighth ATP Tour victory but his first on hardcourts after previously winning only on clay.

Del Potro was unable to create any breathing room in the "breaker" and even needed to produce a backhand down-the-line passing shot victor to stave off a set point. The Argentine, after a strong start, lost his way, even on his usually reliable forehand wing. He won again two years later in Ecuador at another Challenger when Fognini was forced to retire after five games. "It was a good week for me".

"Fabio deserved to win".

"Unfortunately, I couldn't play my best tennis in the final", Del Potro said afterward. "I made some mistakes in the end of the set, but then I played a smart game in the tie-break. I took my chances to win and I'm glad to reach another final this season". Fognini will receive 250 ATP Rankings points and $127,635 in prize money; Del Potro will receive 150 ATP Rankings points and $67,220.
