Tiago Fernandes
Up-and-coming Brazilian player who is transitioning into the pros :) He is the #3 ranked junior in his age group of 1993. Won the Junior Australian Open earlier this year. I will post his results here for anyone who is interested :)

Right now he is playing in the Brazil F27 futures tournament. He won his first round match against his friend Bruno Sant'Anna, 6-2, 6-2 and his second round match against Victor Maynard, 6-2, 2-6, 6-2. He advances to the quarterfinals to face the second seed, Daniel Silva.

Re: Tiago Fernandes
Tiago reached the singles semi and doubles final of the Brazil F28 futures! He had a really tight three setter against the top seed (which is probably why he withdrew from the doubles final) but he is gradually gaining experience :)

I'm not sure where he's playing next year, maybe taking a week off. Keep fighting Tiago!

Re: Tiago Fernandes
Tiago got a WC to the challenger in Sao Paulo next week!

Re: Tiago Fernandes
Tiago won his first round match in Sao Paulo! He was losing 3-6, 0-2 when there was a rain delay, but he came back today and won the second set 7-5, saving THREE match points :eek: and served up a bagel in the third! Fantastic win for him!

He will play Nicolas Devilder next.

From this article (sorry the translation isn't so great!)


"It was a new situation for me, I've never had a match interrupted and delayed until the next day and it was a difficult night," he said, explaining that both he and Meirelles were in an unfamiliar situation, as they train and travel together and are guided by Larri Passos. "We were kind of stuck, could not get a good feel, nor have the support of the coach, who in turn also could not say anything."

"Yesterday (Monday) evening, I could not get a feel for the balls. When we restarted today, I tried to apply a little more." He admits there is some pressure with both the public and press. "There are external factors that should not influence me, but you eventually create this expectation that does not exist. Fortunately, I managed to reassure myself."

Wow, that's a lot of travelling! Where does he get the money from? Why doesn't he just stay in SA?

Re: Tiago Fernandes
First round loss in the Futures, and out 2nd round of Qualifying for the Challenger. Disappointing two weeks, he'll need a miracle in Australia.

Re: Tiago Fernandes
Seems he has an injury to his leg and won't play Brasil Open :sad:

He was supposed to play some challengers after AO qualies but got hurt. He'll go to Costa do Sauipe to train with Bellucci a bit, then spend some weeks in Balneário Camboriú to train, then he will start again playing challengers at the end of February :)

Finally back playing :bounce:

Qualified to the MD for the Kyoto challenger and won his first round match against Yang Tsung-Hua. Lost in the second round to Simon Stadler but it was a good result :)
