Chiudinelli - what can he do 2010?

Swiss # 3 Marco Chiudinelli is quite old for a breakthrough year.

But he is definitly one of the most improved players of 2009 and played a pretty solid season, especially in the second half.

- qualified for the first ATP-tournament of the year in Doha winning 3 matches
- lost in the 3rd round of the Q in Melbourne to Hrbaty
- 2nd round in Johannesburg as a Q
- 2nd round in Dubai as as Q (beating Karlovic)
- played Davis-Cup in March against the US (losing both singles matches against Blake and Roddick)
- won Challenger-tournament in Tenerife in April as a Q
- 2 more Challenger semis
- Doubles-final in Halle/Guetersloh (w A. Beck) and Doubles-Title in Gstaad (w Lammer)
- 3rd US-Open in August as a Q beating Starace and Youzhny (4:6 5:7 5:7 against Davydenko)
- next tournament in Bangkok: quarterfinal as a Q after beating Mayer and Safin
(7:6 3:6 4:6 against Tsonga)
- 2nd Tokyo as Q after beating Sela
- 6:7 6:7 against the eventual champion Melzer in Vienna
- 1st ATP semifinal in Basel against Federer after beating Gasquet in the quarters
- Top 50 (?) by the end of 2009

Re: Chiudinelli - what can he do 2010?

Looking back his best performance before 2009 came at 2006 US-Open where he reached the 3rd round after beating Lopez (plus 3rd round in Tokyo 2004).

Re: Chiudinelli - what can he do 2010?

I can't make any predictions. I'm just crossing my fingers that his body won't let him down for the umpteenth time.

Re: Chiudinelli - what can he do 2010?

he gave davydenko a really tough match at the us open this year, really impressed me that day

davy was helpless at times, really strong performance even though he lost.

Re: Chiudinelli - what can he do 2010?

I predict he will consolidate his position as Swiss #3.

Re: Chiudinelli - what can he do 2010?

Watching the match I got to say that he's got a lot of talent. Great serve, moving well, powerful groundstrokes - although everything doesn't look that natural and fluent. But that might be because he's playing Mr. Elegent Federer.

What a great tennis nation this small country is: With Federer, Wawrinka & Chiudinelli.
And Lammer played a good tournament, too!

Re: Chiudinelli - what can he do 2010?

Fitness will be the key as already outlined by many of you. However he showed great character to not give up entirely on his tennis career. I remember that just 7 years ago we had another Swiss player Michel Kratochvil under the top 40 and he suffered a really serious injury as well, but couldn't make the same kind of comeback that Chiudinelli has done this season and gave up on tennis 2 years ago.

Re: Chiudinelli - what can he do 2010?

I would say Kratochvil's story is different, as he suffered not from an injury but from an illness.

Re: Chiudinelli - what can he do 2010?

Unless he improves his record over top 50 players he's not going to be moving up much further than he is now.

Re: Chiudinelli - what can he do 2010?

Top 40 is a realistic goal for him, maybe top 30 and looking to be seeded at Slams?

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos
