Fabio Fognini has been around in the ATP tour circuit for a long time. However, it is fair to say the Italian is something of an underachiever in the world of pro tennis.
Fognini’s style of play revolves mostly around playing strongly on the baseline. He prefers a forehand shot but his backhand down the line can often be used as a winner. His serve isn’t great but it is consistent and not necessarily a weak point.
What can be considered a weak point is his temperament, which on more than one occasion has gotten him into trouble. That and his propensity for foot faults hold him back.
He turned pro in 2004 and at the age of 34 is still going strong on the ATP Tour circuit. However, a total of 14 career titles – 9 in singles and 5 in doubles – isn’t the best of returns for a player of his ability.
Nevertheless, he has always been a consistent threat on the tour; that is something that has always been reflected in the ATP charts. His highest ranking was 9 in 2019 and he currently sits comfortably in the top 50.
As such, given how long he’s been around, there’s always been a degree of interest in the personal life of Fognini. This, of course, includes his finances and how much money he’s made in his career.
In this article, we will delve into these aspects of Fognini’s life.
The net worth of Fognini is estimated to be around $7 million. He has also won over $16 million in prize money.

They also raised money for golf legend Jack Nicklaus’ Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation through the same tournament.
It is unknown if Fognini owns any major or notable assets.
