Making his pro debut at the Mexico City Challenger in March, Allez-Alejo quickly burst on the TT scene as a fierce competitior. After making the semifinals of the doubles tournament in Mexico, the young gun successfully navigated through the qualifying of the Miami Masters, where he then won his first ATP tour match. The clay season brought double-A good fortune, reaching the singles semis in Bermuda and the doubles semis in Lanzarote, but it Casablanca, only the third career ATP tour event for Alejo, where the world took notice. Once again coming through the qualies, A-A battled his way all the way to the finals, and subsequently well up the ranks. He would follow up his Casablanca performance with solid results in Prague and Yuba City, however as the warm weather of summer began to take hold, Alejo seemed to be cooling off.
First and second round exits plagued the new-comer for better part of three months, a span highlighted only by a doubles final in San Marino and a 3-2 record at the World Team Cup. After winning his first grand slam match at Roland Garros, A-A would go five straight tour events without a singles victory. Once again, this span would be highlighted by a doubles final appearance in Indianapolis, placed in the draw with partner, FORZA PENNETTA, as a LL team. It would only take one week for the drought to end, however, as Alejo rattled off eight consecutive match wins at the Cincinnati Masters, to win his first ATP title, coming through qualifying to do so. After a disappointing Davis Cup play-off tie against India, Alejo returned to form in Mumbai, winning the singles and reaching the finals in doubles. Though the indoor season was a bust in singles, A-A reached the Madrid Masters doubles semis with oft-partnered Tommyb., to cap off a solid rookie year.
A-A has set the bar high for 2008, as he will attempting to achieve the lofty goal of reaching the Masters Cup next season.
