16 y.o. Gianluigi Quinzi gets his first Futures Semifinal

This week, Manzanillo.

Ranked n.4 among juniors (n.1 next year, youngest player highest ranked), Gianluigi got his first Futures semifinal after his convincing win against 17 y.o. Nishioka, ranked near Top 850. Nishioka had defeated Quinzi at this year's Us Open, and GQ got his revenge.
To be fair, Quinzi had already played two matches and was taken by cramps in the third set.





Great stuff

Hian keeps overhyping this kid

Being Italian, he'll be lucky to crack the top-30 at some stage of his career. He should be more than happy if he has a Seppi-like career.

Overhyping? Not many juniors, at such a young age, can get these results.
It's obvious you are here just to troll, bashing a player just because I like him. That says a lot about how much I have to care about you.

Thanasi Kokkinakis made this before him

^ And so? This makes Quinzi's achievement less important?
And Kokkinakis has played so many tournaments among pros tbh.

Go Quinzi!!

My favourite youngster - lefty with heart and a good claycourt future apparently.

Re: 16 y.o. Gianluigi Quinzi gets his first Futures Semifinal

To me something in his favour is that he is much more physically developed than many of his peers -another Nadal similarity really in that though he's 16 he doesn't look like a total kid next to the pros and given how importantly physicality is in the game these days this will serve him well. From the US Open:

I think the comparison with Nadal is a bit too forced. Quinzi prefers hard, Nadal prefers clay. And GQ is much more aggressive with his shots than Rafa. Plus, he definitely needs to work on his movement.
