Well here is a little about Eduardo A.K.A Gordo...

Schwank's family background is from the German-speaking part of Switzerland.

Junior career:
Schwank in his final year on the junior circuit in 2004 had a record of 39-4 winning 5 tournaments, with his biggest title winning the Banana Bowl defeating Pablo Andujar in the final . Schwank finished 2nd in the rankings behind Gaël Monfils who won three out of four of the Junior Grand Slams in that season.

Schwank will probably make even bigger progress next year, so it's a good idea to anticipate it.
