Smile Thomaz Bellucci cheering thread

He definitely deserves his own thread.

After being no. 199 and for the first time top200 last November, Bellucci managed to reach a career-high position of 183 by reaching the quarterfinals in Sao Paolo Challenger, where he lost to compatriot and future tournament champion Thiago Alves.

He's born on 30th December 1987, so just became 20. Bellucci spent the first half 2007 almost exclusively by playing futures in Italy and South America. The he changed to challenger level and reached good results again, in South American clay court tournaments. So he was able to improve roughly 400 positions in 2007.

He also played once in Davis Cup for Brazil so far when losing to Austrian Jürgen Melzer 4-6 4-6 4-6.

However, he did (not) yet make the trip to Melbourne this year where he could have played the qualifiying tournament. Instead he will play La Serena challenger this week (R1 vs. Haider-Maurer). His first big tournament will probably be Costa do Sauipe starting on the 11th of February, where he's very likely to be given a wildcard by the tournament organisation.
