“To reach the Top 10 is like the fulfilment of a dream. I see myself as a kid on a tennis court with a racquet bigger than me and I think, ‘This kid has gone a long way’,” Fognini informed ATPTour.com. “Right now I am happy and I want to thank my family, my wife, my son and all the people who have always been close to me.”
