Re: Tiago Fernandes

It looks like Tiago is making amazing progress, and will be in a good position to try and get into Roland Garros qualifying. Even though Clay isn't his strength, I still think it will be good for him to get his feet in the water with the big boys. Wimbledon qualifying is a good goal though.

Re: Tiago Fernandes

Tiago is playing qualifying in Estoril this week. Its a clay tournament, and he's playing World Number 161 Cipolla first round, so it could be tough.

Re: Tiago Fernandes

Tough draw for Tiago to draw one of the seeds. Hopefully he can take some confidence from his wins in Brazil, but clay isn't his best surface, so we'll see...

Re: Tiago Fernandes

He lost his first match 6-0, 6-1. Clay isn't his best surface and he was playing a much better player, but hopefully he will stay and practice and improve here

Re: Tiago Fernandes

Tiago receives a wildcard into a Challenger in the Czech Republic next week. Probably going to stay in Europe until after Wimbledon I imagine

Re: Tiago Fernandes

Just lost 7-6(7) 6-3
Saved three sets points in first set but lost serve again when serving 7-7 in tie-break
Second set Hajek only needed a chance to break Tiago's serve and then serve for match

Re: Tiago Fernandes

Improvement from Cipolla (he beat Roddick, so maybe that beatdown doesn't look so bad now ) and first time against a player in the top 100. Keep improving, Tiago

Re: Tiago Fernandes

There was a stream for the doubles match, it was pretty funny. You can tell he's still pretty experienced, but it was a 6-4, 6-4 loss against a decent team and a nutjob partner (I think he said on twitter to Christian Lindell that he had never spoken to Benoit Paire before they were signed up to play together )

I'm a little surprised since he said he wanted to play more futures and challengers, but this is good practice for him. Hope he can do well here!
