19 years old, born in december 91. He has came off the radar really because he only played junior tournaments up until 2008 when he was 16. He never played a junior grand slam, but done reasonably well at G2s before trying his luck very young at futures.
It seems to have paid off as he is now probably mentally strong and a better player on the futures circuit and his ranking is building all the time. Will probably start to play Challengers soon.
He also spent most of last year in South America. Making at least 5 futures semi-finas and winning 1 from the summer onwards.
This year he has won 1 future in SA, a runner-up in another and a semi-finalist also in SA.
Now he has just won an Italian future event. Defeating Leonardi, Sieber, Krajinovic, Cecchinato before beating Lindell easily in the final.
Will be well up the rankings in the top 350 probably. Hopefully will continue this success once he plays challengers.
Champion number 1

Lost in the next round to the wily old Ramirez-Hidalgo 62 63. I notived his serve percentage is very low, something that if he can improve upon will definitely see him rise higher in the rankings as when he gets it in, he does very well on them points.

any news when he might be back?
injury came just when he was have a streak of good results

It will take him some months to come back :hug:
And he even broke with his girlfriend a few time ago, Italo-Argentinian player Candelaria Sedano-Acosta (who already found another boy :p)
C'mon Steto, come back stronger!

rumour says he fell off the stairs in his own house or something similar :facepalm:
indeed seemed to be very promising this time of last year...

He is really good, and he was on the right way to crack Top 200 as soon as possible.

He will be back in action soon! Maybe next week in Argentina F18, though possibly will wait till August!
Forza Stetooo!! Looking forward to his long-awaited return!

And he's back!
Played in the qualy of Argentina F19 and lost in the 2R against Kevin Prando 6-3 3-6 6-4. It's going to take a while for him to get back to his level of play, his injury was too serious so it's already a huge win for him just to be competing again and doing his best. Time will tell if he's able to get back at it but, of course, should be a long road ahead. Just hats off for his determination, he's a warrior.

Lost in another Argentinian Future but gave a good fight against Collarini. Tough battle judging by the scoreline. Slowly but surely Steto !

He is back :armed:

He is back :armed:
Maybe next year we'll see him at the level in which he was playing before the accident, the one when he was owning the South American futures and making consistent progress. Last week's result was his best one since coming back but, of course, scorelines suggest he's still 'on the way'. Most are wars but the heart and determination shall be rewarded hopefully.

won his first future after the long injury, beating also Quinzi in the semis
10-24-2012, 07:35 PM
I think he's very close to his level before the injury but still not quite there, struggling against players he shouldn't but knowing his game and how he manages himself on court i'm sure the grind and fighting spirit have played a huge role not just in the recovery process but also for winning those ones.

I really think he's winning this Future, Chile F10, great victory against Saavedra in the 2R!

Lost the final against Heras, 6-2 4-6 4-6. Still showing signs of improvement and another positive week. Step by step!
