Re: Leonardo kirche [BRA]

Kirche had never won a future title until the start of this year. In 2008 he managed to win 3 titles, raised a lot his game and last week he entered the top 400 for the first time, reaching a career high 379.

In previous years he used to play some futures at other countries, but this year he only played Brazilian futures. It was good for him to reach a good ranking, now he should try some challengers qualies as well, maybe even direct ranking in some weak ones. Here are his title runs this year:

Brazil F16, Brazil
FU , 18-Aug-08, O, Clay , Draw: 32


R32 Baran, Andre (BRA) 1860 6-1 6-2 Stats
R16 Ramirez, Juan-Carlos (PAR) 1489 6-2 7-5 Stats
Q Semencato, Edesio (BRA) 1541 6-3 6-3 Stats
S Oliveira, Carlos (BRA) 1541 6-4 6-2 Stats
W Ribeiro Neto, Eladio (BRA) 560 6-3 6-1 Stats

Brazil F22, Brazil
FU , 29-Sep-08, O, Hard , Draw: 32


R32 Costa Valente, Victor (BRA) N/A 6-4 6-2 Stats
R16 Manzini, Vitor (BRA) 1380 6-2 6-2 Stats
Q Siggia, Ricardo (BRA) 1008 6-2 6-3 Stats
S Romboli, Fernando (BRA) 641 6-3 7-5 Stats
W Valverde, Juan-Manuel (ARG) 617 6-3 6-2 Stats

Brazil F30, Brazil
FU , 24-Nov-08, O, Clay , Draw: 32


R32 Feaver, James (GBR) 825 6-2 6-0 Stats
R16 Gresh, Jamie (USA) 0 6-3 6-3 Stats
Q Dracos, Benjamin (FRA) 571 6-1 6-4 Stats
S Mesaros, Kristijan (CRO) 564 6-4 6-4 Stats
W Giussani, Gaston (ARG) 986 3-6 6-0 6-3 Stats

He played a total of 20 tournaments:

W: 3 times
RU: 2
SF: 7

Vamos Leo, 2009 can be even better and you deserve it

Re: Leonardo kirche [BRA]

He lost to Kryvonos at the first round last week.

Now he will face Brazilian João Wiesinger at Brazil F35. Let's hope he wins the title this time, this would give him a WC to São Paulo challenger in January.

Re: Leonardo kirche [BRA]

Leo played some challengers qualies at Italy last month but had no success on reaching the main draw. Hopefully this experience will help him get good results at the Brazilian futures season that will start in May

Re: Leonardo kirche [BRA]

Great start of the Brazilian futures season for him, he won 4 matches and only lost in the final to Julio Silva. He also defeated the 1st seed Andre Miele in 2 easy sets.

Keep winning the matches Leo and let's try to play some challengers as well

Re: Leonardo kirche [BRA]

Another final for Kirche, but he couldn't clicnh the title again. This time he lost 4-6 7-5 7-6 to Carlos Oliveira, a relatively old guy (32 years old) who didn't follow the professional career but started playing futures last year.

Leo now plays another future at Uberlândia, hopefully he can have a good run again.

Re: Leonardo kirche [BRA]

First future title of the year for Leo, in Fortaleza

It was his revenge against Carlos Oliveira in the final.

Keep it up man.
