Re: Thiago "Cabelo" Alves

Thiago won his R2 match over Dzumhur 6-4 6-2, but lost in the QF to Kavcic 4-6 2-6 yesterday. He was up a break in the first set, but he fell down trying to hit a low volley. After the incident, he was not the same player. Unfortunate loss but with his QF result, Thiago has moved up to #151 in the world, so he's almost top 150! All in all, he's having an amazing season after being hurt and off tour for almost all of 2011.

His next tournament is Santos next week, wish for more success in Brazil!

Thiago is playing in Blumenau this week. As the #6 seed, he won his R1 match over Andreozzi 6-4 6-4. He plays talented young player Dzumhur in R2 today, it's a potentially dangerous match. Hopefully Thiago comes through with the victory.

Re: Thiago "Cabelo" Alves

Has been a long time without news on Thiago in this thread so now is a great time to update on his career the past few seasons. Thiago finished the 2009 season ranked #149th after winning Campos do Jordao and reaching a career-high 88 during the summer. After struggling to end 2009 he started 2010 on a strong note, making semifinals in two of his first three challengers, on hard court and clay respectively, qualifying for Indian Wells, before making a SF and F in two more hard court challengers to raise his ranking to #105. He qualified for the French Open, beating Gaudio in the process before losing to Fernando Gonzalez, and in August he made the finals of another hardcourt challenger in Salvador, Brazil. He finished 2010 ranked #150 as his results outside of the final in Salvador were poor the second-half of the season.

In 2011, Thiago struggled early and suffered with injuries that took him off the tour for an extended period of time throughout the year. He made one futures final the first half of the season, but his ranking fell all the way to #553 in late September, before having a good run of form to end the season. He won two futures titles, made the QF of two others and made the SF of the Sao Jose Do Rio Preto challenger, to raise his ranking to #343 to end the season.

This season has started out wonderfully for Thiago. He has won two challengers this season------in Sao Paulo to start the season and in Guadalajara a few weeks ago. He also made the SF of Florianopolis and has risen his ranking all the way to a provisional ranking of #159! With as little as he has to defend until the last quarter of the season, getting into the top 100 is possible for Thiago if he continues his great form; hopefully he is able to do so, as he has earned such a position with all the setbacks he has had to endure in his career.

Alves e Chela estreiam em Campos do Jordão

Campos do Jordão (SP) - Cabeça-de-chave 1 da Citibank MasterCard Tennis Cup, Thiago Alves estreia nesta terça na competição, num momento especial do tênis brasileiro, sendo um dos três tenistas do País que integram o grupo dos top 100 da ATP, fato que não ocorria desde 2003. Alves enfrenta o também brasileiro André Miele, em Campos do Jordão. A Citibank MasterCard Tennis Cup vai até o dia 08, com entrada gratuita, no Campos do Jordão Tênis Clube (Av. Dr Paulo Ribas), distribuindo US$ 75 mil em prêmios e pontos no ranking mundial.

Alves, 94º entrará em quadra querendo fazer uma boa campanha na competição, para somar mais pontos no ranking mundial, se aproximar de Marcos Daniel – 58º - e Bellucci – 66º -, se manter no top 100 e estar pronto para contribuir com o tênis brasileiro. De 18 a 20 de setembro o Brasil enfrenta o Equador, em Porto Alegre, no Estádio do Gigantinho, no saibro, pelo Play-Off do Grupo Mundial da Copa Davis. O vencedor volta ao grupo de elite da competição, do qual não faz parte desde 2003.

“É uma competição saudável entre a gente. É muito bom estarmos brigando para ser o primeiro do Brasil, mas lutando para estar entre os top 50 e não mais entre os 150,” afirmou Alves. “O tênis brasileiro está evoluindo e vou contribuir na Davis também. Claro que quero jogar e ser convocado, mas todo mundo sabe que o saibro não é o meu piso predileto. O Thomaz e o Marcos são os favoritos, temos uma chance especial para voltar ao Grupo Mundial, mesmo sabendo que o Nicolas e o Giovanni Lapentti são muito perigosos. De qualquer maneira, mesmo se eu não estiver entre os titulares, o Chico (Costa – capitão) já conversou com a gente e estaremos lá para ajudar o time. É importante todo mundo participar e ter a chance de no ano que vem, jogar o Grupo Mundial.”

Costa, que também está em Campos do Jordão, lembra que sob seu comando a equipe nunca foi fechada e que dos 15 primeiros brasileiros no ranking, 10 já passaram pelo grupo da Davis.” É bom saber que todos querem contribuir, por que é importante para o titular treinar com um reserva de alto nível e que está pronto para jogar a qualquer momento. São “rivais” no bom sentido, uma competição saudável com o objetivo de ajudar o Brasil”.

Sobre a estreia contra Andre Miele, Thiago acredita estar jogando bem. “Chego num bom momento. Esse é o torneio mais importante que estou jogando nestas semanas no Brasil e muito bom de se jogar.”

Nesta terça também estreiam outros sete brasileiros e o grande destaque da Citibank MasterCard Tennis Cup, Juan Ignacion Chela, que enfrenta o australiano Samuel Groth. Bicampeão em Campos, Ricardo Mello joga contra o argentino Juan Pablo Amado; Julio Silva estreia diante do espanhol Guillermo Alcaide; João Souza pega o sul-africano Izak van der Merwe; José Pereira Jr. desafia o mexicano Santiago Gonzalez; Caio Zampieri joga contra o argentino Eduardo Schwank e Rogério Dutra Silva, contra Guido Pella, também da Argentina.
O gaúcho Marcelo Demoliner foi o primeiro brasileiro a vencer na Citibank MasterCard Tennis 2009. Ele derrotou, nesta segunda-feira, Victor Estrella, da República Dominicana, por 7/6(3) 6/2. Ricardo Siggia perdeu para o inglês Joshua Goodall, por 6/2 6/3; Daniel Dutra Silva para o uruguaio Marcel Felder, por 7/6(3) 6/3 e Rafael Rondino para o francês David Guez, por 6/1 6/3. Ricardo Hocevar venceu o confronto de brasileiros, derrotando Leonardo Kirche por 7/6(3) 6/2.

A Citibank MasterCard Tennis Cup traz o tênis a Campos do Jordão durante duas semanas. Neste domingo terminou a disputa feminine, com vitória da boliviana Maria Fernanda Alvarez, sobre a brasileira Maria Fernanda Alves. Os jogos masculinos vão até sábado, com o campeão marcando 80 pontos na ATP e ganhando um cheque de US$ 7,2 mil. Diariamente o BandSports e o site www.tvtenis.com.br transmistem ao vivo um jogo e passam o VT de outra partida no final da tarde.
A Citibank MasterCard Tennis Cup 2009 é uma realização da Try Sports, com o patrocínio do Citibank e da MasterCard e o co-patrocínio de Credicard, Seguros Unimed, Bohemia, Wittel, "C5 Sedan" e "C5 Tourer" - Os Carros Oficiais do Evento -, Contax, Sagem Orga, Fila - A Marca Esportiva Oficial -, Quorum, Check Express, Resource.

Thiago Alves plays at Wimbledon for the first time



With the withdraw of Rafael Nadal in Wimbledon, the native of São Paulo, Thiago Alves gained a place in the main draw as a lucky-loser and Brazil will have a name in the singles. Thiago, 27 years old had been eliminated in the qualifying round and now takes Nicolas Kiefer's slot.Thiago Alves goes to play Wimbledon for the first time . He will face in the first round Andrei Pavel, who came back of retirement and plays with ranking protecting. Pavel is 35 years old and appears as 911º of ranking. Excellent chance for Thiago, 120º, to advance in Wimby!!!

Thiago did his best, but was defeated by Kubot. What a tough, dramatic match!

All is not lost though. Let's see if he enters the main draw as a lucky loser. It's still possible.
