Re: Tiago Fernandes

He just qualified for a challenger in China, and will play Naso first round. I think he can win that one too.

Re: Tiago Fernandes

At this point, along with the 9 points he earned last week, he should be around the Top 500.

Re: Tiago Fernandes

He reached a career high ranking of 512 after his good run in China

Not sure where he will play next, maybe the challenger in Recife, Brazil

Re: Tiago Fernandes

Good draw for Tiago in Recife. Qualifier first round, then either WC Sant'anna or 6th seed Romboli in the 2nd round.

Re: Tiago Fernandes

Great news now that the two seeds in his quarter have lost. He plays a qualifier, and hopefully he can win that match, then plays Sant'anna next. A winnable first and second round for him, and then he has a fair chance to reach semis as well. Hope he can do it!

Re: Tiago Fernandes

Won 6-4, 4-6, 6-2, a hard fought match against fellow Brazilian Tiago Lopes. Sant'anna next.

Re: Tiago Fernandes

Big win over Sant'anna, and should be able to make the semi-finals.

With the 15pts he has already he'll move up to around 461, and if he does get to into the semi-finals he'll be around 425.

I imagine he'll pick up points in the other 2 Brazilian Challengers, and hopefully he'll head to Europe after, and try to get into Roland Garros qualifying.

Re: Tiago Fernandes

Tiago in the semis!!! 6-4 3-6 7-6 over Clezar. What a great victory!

In the 3rd set, Clezar broke for 6-5, but Tiago broke back immediately and then won the tiebreak.

I am sooooo happy!

Re: Tiago Fernandes

With this win, Tiago will be at about #425 in the ranking next week. A jump with over 75 places

Re: Tiago Fernandes

Tiago has played so solid this week

I think he might've lost this, but he's been very good mentally this week, he saved a lot of break points and he's done a great job of keeping it together when he gets broken, like today, he couldn't convert two BPs at 4-3* and then gets broken at *5-5, but instead of just collapsing, he fights back, breaks at love and wins the TB. Same with Sant'anna match, Bruno served for the set but Tiago is just too good on hard courts. On clay, the other boys might have an advantage, but Tiago is too good here

Re: Tiago Fernandes

First challenger semifinal

Defeated Julio Silva 2-6, 7-5, 7-6(2)

"I'm very happy with this victory, because I managed to win against a very experienced player. I got to be aggressive and win points in the important moments. Julinho is a player who moves, runs, defends and counterattacks very well. It's been an amazing week, full of different experiences, helping me grow and learn a lot."

He plays Tatsuma Ito in the final in an hour or so. He'll be ranked around 380, and if he wins, around 335.

Shortly after securing a historic result, Fernandes announced that fatigue and back pain forced him to give up playing the final of Pernambuco Brazil Open Series, which was scheduled for 19:30 against the Japanese Tatsuma Ito.

The decision was taken by coach Larri Passos. He had tried to change the final to Monday, which was not possible due to the lineup of players, and Fernandes did not play the final in order to be preserved physically.

With the 48 points scored at this week's tournament, Fernandes rises from 509° to around 380° in the rankings. He won the right to compete in the challenger of Blumenau, where he will debut on Tuesday against the 6th seed Leonardo Mayer.

At number 166 in the rankings, Ito can celebrate not only the title and prize of $ 5000, but also an invitation to compete in the main draw of the Brazil Open in 2012.

He was too physically exhausted to play the final but reaching the final is still impressive and he will reach a career high in the 380s now!
