At age 25, Brazilian Andre Sa is finally having some good results in his career. A promising junior, never had the same success in the pros and it looks like 2002 will finally be his breakthrough year.
Andre has had hard times since he begun his pro career. Sponsors, family and specially confidence
. Andre went to NBTA when he was very young to train hard and imigrated to some university I can't remember to play tennis. Then, he decided to dedicate himself 100% to pros.
Andre doesn't have any weapon. He's got an ok serve, an ok forehand, an ok backhand, ok volleys... he hasn't got any punishing shot that could make him win much more matches. He still holds an 11-17 record this season, and has still to earn $1M in his full career. But with his Wimbledon quarterfinal and now another quarterfinal in Amersfoot, Andre is my pick for "newcomer", "late-boomer", "breakthrough" or whatever else this year
Good luck Andre
