Surprised no-one have started a thread about our new star Christian Lindell.

He was growing up in Brazil and his father is Swedish and mother from Brazil.

He got a brealthrough in Swedish Open this year when he lost 6-4 in the 3rd set in the 1:St rd against Jarkko Nieminen.

From then on he have played future events in Brazil and made it to 2 straight finals. This week he is in the semifinal in a 15.000 $ future.

If Christian continues to progress this way , it´s just a matter of time before he´s up and competing with the top 100 in the world.

Vamo Christian!!!

Iv´e been following him for an while, but in the futures forum :) He lost the semifinal, but some great weeks for Christian!

Is scheduled to play the next future, and withdrew from the one the week after...

Cool, a thread.

Christian played the S$10,000+H in Fortaleza, Brazil this week and won the first round but then lost to Juan-Pablo Villar(ARG, 464). He looks pretty stable against opponents in the 5-700 range so it should be just a matter of time if he keeps going until he cracks top500. Right now he's at 640. In five futures after Båstad he has 2 finals, 1 semifinal, 1 R16 and 1 R32. Best of luck to him.

Christian is playing a challenger in Belo Horizonte, Brazil this week. He got in with a wild card, good to see. Here's the draw (http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2010/6195/mds.pdf). He has Marcel Felder(URU) in the first round. Christian is now ranked at 565 by the way.

A win that will take him another 30 or so spots up in the rankings, another win and he'll be sniffing top500 :yeah: Interestingly, the top3 seeds all lost in the 1st round.

Brazil F26 Futures 2010


Final

Fernando ROMBOLI (BRA) (3) defeated Christian LINDELL (SWE) (5) 6-4 7-5

Great result!

- It feels nice and all the hard work that I have done has paid off. Now I have reached my goal to reach the top 500 this year and have a few more races and perhaps could climb further. Next year I aim to peak 200th It will be difficult, but I will work hard for it, "said Christian Lindell.

Back home in Brazil, he is well placed in the fray with training on Amil's training center and tough sparring with João Souza, who is ranked just outside the Top 100. This summer's wild card in the ATP tournament in Bastad also helped to lose a little respect for top players.

- Seeing that I was so close to winning an ATP match gave me confidence and made it easier to go to the smaller futures tournaments. I realized that the difference was not so great, "he explains.

When futures point from the weekend, which lags a week, counted Lindell will be Sweden Line with his ranking just inside 500 on the ATP list. Thinking that possibly the Davis Cup?

- It is a goal for me to ever play the Davis Cup and right now, Sweden has not many options on two singles? But it is far to March and it's a long way to go. We'll see what happens, "says Lindell.

Lindell lost in a tough 3rd set tiebreaker vs Neis this time..but still takes home 2 points for his rankings to again climb up a little bit! Now he goes on for 2 futures in brazil and i do not know if he will play qualies in Sao Paolo challenger.

Chris-swede
10-14-2010, 09:11 AM
Lindell is in quarters in Brazil again, now vs Santos, he can win this but it is not easy.
in Doubles he is in semis.

He is earning point by point for his rankings...has to go on a ladder for 2011!!! :worship:

he is unseeded in this weeks future in brazil, will play a qualifier and then Villar or Clezar in 2nd round, draw is nice to him, also he is unseeded. He not plays doubles and maybe he is too tired in singles to win more then 1 game..but it is okay for him!

but sweden has no other players..:)

Jomp1
11-12-2010, 01:21 PM
I mean if he can beat ~top100 players, albeit clay, he's the second best we can start with. I guess he will fight with Ryderstedt first and foremost for that rubber.

Flavio_Sverige
11-12-2010, 02:10 PM
That's depends if Sweden plays in hard they will call Ryderstedt with we play on clay they should call Lindell

Lindell and Fernandes will probably be given WC's, should be good to see. By the way, it seems Lindell wants to play for Brazil and it may happen in 2011 already.

If he wants to play for Brazil, that´s okey, it isn´t strange really. Born and raised there, but however i haven´t heard or read anything about it, so for now he represent Sweden, and hope he´ll stick to that. I will cheer for him anyways, an great lad. But hope he remember where he got the support from when he was 16 years old and all the help from Catella and soo on.

Jomp1
12-28-2010, 03:02 AM
That would suck because Sweden needs any capable players they can get right now. Lindell is by far the most promising youngster right now. But may I ask, are the actually any quotes from him or anywhere where you can read the source of this rumour?

It's a mental thing for someone his age. He took some hard three-set three-hour plus beatings when he tried on the challengers earlier in the season and then some in Düsseldorf and Båstad. Great experience, but bad for his confidence. Needs to take a step back and then two steps forward now. I bet he's eager to get some results this fall.

Jomp1
09-04-2014, 11:22 PM
Will be interesting to see him play DC, last week he was in a challenger QF, this week he beat Starace(who was awful tho) and played rather evenly with Andi Beck. Which is roughly the level of competition he'll face against Romania.

He has really improved this season, it looks like he's on the challenger level to stay and he's knocking on the door to GS qualies. He still needs to get much stronger though, and it would help his style of play a great deal.

Jelena
09-07-2014, 04:30 PM
He sure still has to get stronger physically, but I'm very sure he not only knows that but also is willing to work more than ever before. Another point he really has to work on is to not lose the focus once he got the rebreak. In both matches he lost in the past few weeks (vs Bozoljac and vs Beck) there were 3 breaks in a row. and two of them against him.

Flavio_Sverige
09-12-2014, 11:30 PM
