Is he serious about playing professional tennis? Climbing up ranking?
Well I have more news about him and it seems he and Jaime Oncins are very likely to part ways. Allegedly Saretta is not willing put the necessary effort in the practices, he doesn't seem to be excited about tennis at the moment (well it has been like that for a couple of years now). So Oncins is almost giving up on him, because he initially had higher ambitions for Saretta (and rightly so). I personally have been having the impression that Flavio is comfortable with being around the 100th place in the rankings, and probably has set this as a personal goal for the rest of his career.
If Flavio doesn't get in directly at the US Open, he will only come back in Davis Cup in September.
