Thiago deserves a thread of his own, don't know how many people will post here, but what the hell...
He has just won his fourth career challenger title in Manta, Ecuador, and is currently ranked at 122, with great possibilities of finishing the year in the top 100. He had a good career as a junior but in 2003, when he was climbing up the rankings, he had a severe shoulder injury that kept him sidelined for 12 months. He then came back in mid 2004 without an ATP ranking and had to start over winning futures, then in 2005 he made the transition to challenger level winning two titles in Ecuador. This year he won the title in Belo Horizonte as well.
And he supports Sao Paulo FC which is a good thing.
