Paolo Lorenzi - The Ultimate Journeyman

Some people here were surprised to see him in top 100 at the end of last year thinking, how the hell did he get there
He had some good results in challengers last year but has failed to win any matches in ATP tour.

But the past month he has been a protagonist and not on the tennis court
Check his last tournaments

11.03 Indian Wells - Lost to Russell R1
(transatlantic trip) 16.03 Caltanissetta Chall - Lost QF to Trevisan
(transatlantic trip) 25.03 Miami - Lost to Chela R1
(transatlantic trip) 30.03 Napoli Chall - Lost to Junqueira R2
(transatlantic trip) 05.04 playing in Bogota Chall
12.04 final in Pereira
(transatlantic trip) Icelandic volcano permitting - 19.04 Rome Challenger II

he's surely getting a lot of points in his Air Miles card

Re: Paolo Lorenzi - The Ultimate Journeyman

Economidis used to this when he made the top 100 and Kool Kevin Kim will travel anywhere to get into a tournament.

Lorenzi doesn't feel jetlag.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Dennis Bergkamp became a good football player only because he was too scared of flying to become a journeymen tennis player.

Re: Paolo Lorenzi - The Ultimate Journeyman

Lol, I was mentioning this over and over again in other topics.

Don't forget to mention that he is bound to travel to Italy again in two weeks.

if so this is horrible news, the best part of watching him play was the suspense of wondering, every time he served, whether he was going to hit the ball or just charge over the net and bludgeon his opponent to death with his racket

We can only imagine how the flight attendants eat out of his hand when he regularly shows off his moves during rides.

Re: Paolo Lorenzi - The Ultimate Journeyman

Good results on challanger level; once he went upgrade it was obvious he doesn't belong there! Many, many others like him in last 3 years!

Re: Paolo Lorenzi - The Ultimate Journeyman

At least he managed to let people speak about him for something

I was much surprised that nobody talked about him last year when he greatly improved his rankings (reached a carreer-best of 83).

The thread bout him in Italian forum had remained unfilled for years

But at least there was something to know more about him (well some had been said about him after he beat Tomic )

yes I had mentioned these ways and backs : I always thought he would retire but he never did

Last year he also travelled sometimes to African futures

A player who very often won very tight matches last year

useless old guy
