This is their first meeting.
Fognini has lost in the 1st round in 5 of his last 6 Australian Opens. He reached the 4th round in 2014 which was his best ever season.
Muller started last year strongly on hard courts and he has done the same in 2016. He reached the semi finals in Sydney.
I think he will be too strong for Fognini tonight but I can see Fognini taking a set.
