Albano Olivetti


(runner-up at a futures event in Canada earlier this year)

Okay, I have to admit I don't know much about this young fella apart from that he's one of the better furures players this year, but his serve stats are spectacular to say the least. He had 50 aces against Juska two weeks ago (and still lost the match). How talented is he in other areas? The next Ivanisevic or maybe only the next Guccione?

from his website:

Date et lieu de naissance : 24/11/1991 à Haguenau

Lieu de résidence: Paris à Roland-Garros

Rêve en tennis: Gagner un grand-chelem
Tournoi favori: U.S.Open
Surface préféré: Dur/moquette

I'm wondering because he served amazing but he can lost a future match with more than 30 aces I don't know if he will progress in the game but I think he is one of the best server on the tour then his stats are on the future level so we can't analyse how it would be on the atp tour with better returners

He lost to Goffin this week in Rodez the stats of the match http://ww2.ti.fft.fr/Event.asp?CodeE...&NumMatch=2005 Not great

Re: Albano Olivetti

Been following him for a while, rest of his game definitely needs work.

Re: Albano Olivetti

He won two matches in CH Geneva qualifying this week and beat Petersburg quarterfinalist Lajovic in straights in round 1. If the statsheet is correct, he won 35/35 on first serve in this match. The loss came in round 2 to fellow youngster Berankis.

Re: Albano Olivetti

One of the better future players? Not quite yet. What I have read, he has an awesome serve, but his other strokes are no better than I have in my arsenal. But he is only 19...

Re: Albano Olivetti

according to Lajovic, Olivetti hit a 258km/h-serve in their match last week, but Karlovic's 251 still stand as they don't count challengers

Re: Albano Olivetti

An article about Albano "ace" Olivetti. 95% of time he's seaching for the ace. He would be happy to catch the speed record of Karlovic

Re: Albano Olivetti

He won vs Bachinger his first ATP tour match and funny is that he's surprised not to win but win without tie-break

Audios and videos http://www.fft.fr/actualites/tennis-...livetti?page=0 and http://www.open13.fr/interviews.html

Di Pasquale is happy about him so it's sound good for some WC in french event. I read that for Cherbourg next week it could be the case.

Re: Albano Olivetti

I'm watching him right now and was prepared for the worst, but I actually think he plays pretty well from the back.
Not the best volley and return yet, but he won quite some rallies against Fish.

Re: Albano Olivetti

His team is cautious. He's training again but no risk after the abs tear in Marseille. Le Gosier could be next stop

Re: Albano Olivetti

In april he got another tear in the abs less serious than the first but he wasn't able to serve during one week. He's back in futures now and hope to play some challengers.

Any chance for a WC into RG or Paris-Bercy?



Stronga,Monfils,DelPo,Nalbandian,Berdych,Gulbis,Ha as and Djokovic are the players I support the most.
