Henri Laaksonen

Since the start of this year Henri has been representing Switzerland. His mum is Finnish and he has lived in Finland most of his life, but nowadays he is mostly living and training in Switzerland. His dad is a former Swiss pro player Sandro Della Piana. Henri won the Boys 16 & under European Championship in 2008 and played in RG boys singles semis in 2009. He played for Finland in Davis Cup against Monaco in July 2009 and kept the tie alive by beating Clement Morel in 5 sets. Henri is coming back after a long injury break in 2010. He is playing a futures tournament in Israel this week and he's been doing really well

Keep your eyes on him people

There's an article in Finnish to confirm it: http://www.hs.fi/urheilu/artikkeli/T.../1135262893554

Re: Henri Laaksonen

In Estoril, he won 2 matches and lost the final Q round.

Now, in Rome Challenger, he qualified and then lost to Gilles Muller (Seeded 1) in 3 sets.
That's a great result.

Muller is a top 80 player, on clay probably not one of the 120 best player but still a great result for Laaksonen.

Re: Henri Laaksonen

Laaksonen got nominated for the first time for the Swiss Davis Cup team for the Play Off against Netherlands and said that it will be a unique opportunity to practice with topplayers.
