Fognini, Dimitrov, Shapovalov Headline Stockholm Field; All You Need To Know
Fabio Fognini leads the charge at the Intrum Stockholm Open, the 2018 ATP 250 Tournament of the Year. The Italian, who reached a career-high World No. 9 earlier this season, will be making his third straight appearance in Stockholm. He reached the semi-finals on his previous two visits, falling to Grigor Dimitrov in 2017 and to eventual champion Stefanos Tsitsipas in 2018.
Dimitrov will look to reclaim the title he won in 2013 (d. Ferrer). The Bulgarian has reached the quarter-finals or better in six of his seven Stockholm appearances, including three finals.
